Proper motion is essential for proper function.
Reduction of motion, inflammation, calcium buildup, and scar tissue occur with joint injury whether spinal or extremity. Joint injury can by caused by repetitive motions, improper sitting, and overexertion in addition to traumatic reasons such as slips, falls, and accidents. Awareness of these types of problems has become more common with terms like "tennis elbow", "runners knee", "frozen shoulder", and "carpal tunnel syndrome."
Traditional treatment of many extremity problems involves splinting the joint to reduce movement, pain medications, muscle relaxers, and even surgery, although today, a more common sense approach is being taken.
Joint mobilization, like chiropractic care for the spine, is used in the care of elbows, wrists, and other joints of the body. Helping to restore normal range of motion to joints that have become "locked up", "jammed", or injured, seems to improve blood circulation, reduce scar tissue, and speed the healing process.

Finding the cause of your problem.
Joints of the body can lose their normal motion and position and will result in symptoms of pain, swelling and loss of function. Many are surprised to learn that joint pain in the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, ankle, or knee can often be helped by chiropractic care.
