Arms Length Diagnosis
When patients suffer from elbow problems, the wrist and shoulder are also probably involved. Because of this, chiropractors are likely to make a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan that takes arm function into account. Well the most common sign of elbow injury is loss of motion in the flexion/extension plane, a chiropractors assessment will also include the road remove ments in the functions of nerves and muscles. In addition, because elbow pain is sometimes referred from other sites, the chiropractor will include a thorough upper-extremity and neck examination. The patient will also be asked questions that will help ascertain whether the injury represents a single acute event or a longstanding condition.
Chiropractic helps to remove postural imbalances and structural misalignment that can accumulate in our bodies over time. It works by restoring your own inborn ability to be health. Many people assume that chiropractors treat only back and neck ailments. While we do quickly and effectively eliminate back and neck pain, it's not the only goal. The objective is to restore and optimize human health. P.S. if numbness or tingling accompanies elbow pain, nerve involvement is likely.
