Feel Better Today / Extremity & Orthotics
Extremities When joint function is not properly working, there is reduced range of motion, inflammation, calcium buildup, and scar tissue that forms. This is typically caused from falls, slips, trauma, repetitive motions, posture, too much exertion, and many other causes. Extremity conditions such as “tennis elbow”, “runner’s knee”, “frozen shoulder”, and “carpal tunnel syndrome” are diagnosed. The impaired function of the elbow and other extremity joints of the body can often be helped with proper chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care is often commonly understood as care for the spine but it can be done to elbows, wrists, and every other joint of the human body. Helping to restore normal range of motion to joints that have become “locked-up”, “fixed”, or injured, seems to improve blood circulation which in turn will increase healing, reduce pain and inflammation and decrease scar tissue.
Dr. Dray and Dr. Hunsicker are uniquely trained to find and help restore proper joint function of the spine and the extremities.
Custom Orthotics Problems in the feet can cause a “chain reaction” of symptoms in the ankles, knees, hips and spine. When needed, these special foot supports can help improve fallen arches, feet that turn in or out as well as many other mechanical abnormalities of the feet. This results in improved body alignment and decreased postural stress to all weight bearing joints. Molds of your feet are created and sent to a specialized lab along with specific recommendations provided by Dr.Dray or Dr. Hunsicker. These are used to make custom-fitting corrective orthotics that slip into your shoes. Their unique size and shape are designed for you and your specific problem.
Foot Levelers are stabilizing orthotics which provide whole-body support by effectively balancing your feet – the body’s foundation.
