Are you looking for a joint chiropractor in Croydon? Chiropractors are trained in in the assessment and diagnosis of conditions that occur in all areas of your body including your limbs, not just your spine. They can assess the joint itself, but they can assess the areas around it and also if the nerve supply that comes from your spine to that joint. This way you have a complete picture of why you are having that problem and how to reduce the dysfunction. Conditions such as tennis elbow, golfers elbow can be caused by reduction in the nerve firing into the muscle which causes some weakness. In this case the muscle itself being overused and pulling on some of the bones, or the joint being stiff, sore and not allowing for proper movement, therefore creating pain. There are many other examples of joint problems, such as stiffness or soreness in your ankles, ankle sprains, wrist arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder joint impingements, frozen shoulder and joint pain. While these conditions cannot be solved by Chiropractic care, or any other kind of care, there is good evidence to show that the reduction in the symptoms can occur more quickly when under the guidance of a qualified healthcare practitioner.
Treatment may include manual manipulations such as adjustments, mobilisations, stretching, and massage. The approach will depend on the type and severity of the condition, as well as the individual‘s response to treatment. In some cases, a chiropractor may recommend the use of cold or heat therapy, ultrasound, rehabilitative exercises, and lifestyle modifications to help manage the condition.
