What is Extremity Adjustment?

You know that chiropractors treat issues involving the back and neck, but chiropractic is not just for the spine. Sometimes the pain you’re experiencing originates elsewhere in the body. Think about shin splints, Achilles tendonitis, TMJ pain, carpal tunnel issues, or plantar fasciitis. A certified chiropractic extremity practitioner can ease pain and reduce inflammation without surgery or drugs.

Consider all the joints in your body — jaws, shoulders, ribs, wrists, elbows, fingers, hips, ankles, knees, toes. They are all subject to the same kinds of subluxations, fixations, and irregularities that the vertebrae in your spine can have. Left untreated, not only will the symptoms remain, but they may also lead to chronic spinal problems. A chiropractor trained in extremity adjustment will adjust your spine, first, then check your extremity joints and adjust as needed.

Dr. Tilyr Dunklow is the only certified chiropractic extremity practitioner in Vermont and one of only three in New England. He specializes in helping athletes and other physically active individuals maintain their peak performance levels.

Patients who suffer from issues such as trigger thumb, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, Achilles tendonitis, and scar tissue restrictions are experiencing welcome pain relief, as a result of the adjustments and practices Dr. Tilyr specializes in.

Extremity adjustment is a great option for people who want to avoid taking medications or having surgery and want to fix the problem at its source, rather than just treating symptoms.
