Have you been told you’re suffering from tennis elbow? Runner’s knee? What about carpal tunnel syndrome or a frozen shoulder? If so, you’re not alone because awareness of these joint function problems is increasing. Here’s what else, though, is important to know: for proper joint function to take place, proper motion is essential.

When joint function is impaired, you experience reduced range of motion, limiting your ability to move without pain. Inflammation is involved, calcium builds up and scar tissue forms. There are multiple causes, including (but not limited to):
Here’s the bottom line: if your joints lose their normal position and/or motion, you typically experience pain.
Traditionally, your elbow or knee – or other painful joint – might be splinted to reduce movement. You might begin to take muscle relaxers and pain medications, receive steroid injections, and perhaps even have surgery.
But, did you know that impaired function of your body’s extremity joints can often be helped with chiropractic care? This common-sense approach called joint mobilization can address pain and mobility issues in elbows, wrists and more, just like it’s used to care for the spine. When normal range of motion is restored to joints that were injured, jammed or locked up, this seems to speed the healing process by improving blood circulation and reducing scar tissue.
