Hip, Knee, Ankle and Foot Problems
Similar to arm problems, joint dysfunction in the legs can be addressed through chiropractic care. Our feet are the foundations on which we stand and because of that they experience a great deal of stress from carrying our body’s weight through normal daily activities.
If a joint is not functioning properly in the foot it can often work its way up the leg and even into the lower back. This process can also work in reverse. Joint misalignments are often effectively treated with chiropractic manipulations. The hip, knee, ankle, and foot are all areas in which conservative care can reap huge rewards if caught early enough.
As with the arm, our exam of any leg complaint will include a thorough spinal exam to rule out any problems which are originating from this area. Our whole body is intricately connected, therefore addressing spinal dysfunction can often clear up leg complaints, and vice-versa, restoring proper joint function in the legs can often restore proper balance to the low back.
