At PSSM we believe in a whole-body adjusting approach to improve joint biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference.

WHOLE BODY TECHNIQUE/EXTREMITY ADJUSTING

The Doctors here use a blending of adjusting techniques to address the whole person. Our technique is based on extensive training, judgment and years of experience. Our highly effective whole-body adjusting means that the Doctor will examine many other joints of your skeletal system. The latest research shows that dysfunctional joints in the feet, knees, hips, wrists, elbows, and shoulders will affect the core of your body. This means that your feet may not hurt at all, but they could be hurting your back for example.

The term joint dysfunction describes a joint condition that involves reduced motion, abnormal muscle tone, inflammation, calcium buildup, and scar tissue. Some well-known joint dysfunctions have names like “tennis elbow”, “frozen shoulder”, “carpal tunnel syndrome”, and “runner’s knee”.

Traditional medical care for these problems can involve therapeutic bracing the injured joint, medications for pain and inflammation, muscle relaxers, and surgery.

At PSSM we take a natural and common sense approach. We use extremity adjusting as an integral part of our wellness programs. Extremity adjustments are a type of joint mobilization similar to spinal adjusting. We use extremity adjusting to care for shoulders, feet, ankles, hips, knees, fingers and wrists. The key in any joint adjustment is to help restore normal motion to joints that have become “locked-up”, “jammed”, or injured. This reduces pain, improves motion, relaxes muscles, reduces nerve interference, and promotes healing.

Extremity adjusting is a safe and very useful natural therapy, and whether you choose to treat solely with chiropractic or in conjunction with the other specialties here at Performance Spine & Sports Medicine such as Physical Therapy and/or our non-surgical orthopedic team, many patients report excellent results and fast improvement with our whole-body technique.

Patients Reviews…

The entire staff at Performance Spine and Sports Medicine are very professional and the care that they provide is first rate. I have had PT and Chiropractic care in the past and I would rank this organization better in every way. The integrated model of having Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, massage therapists, and physicians under the same roof is very helpful and really facilitates interaction between all of the care providers. I would not hesitate to recommend this organization.

This is my second time at PSSM and the results are great once again. The staff was great and everyone is friendly and warm and most importantly they have gotten me back to pursuing my passion and work once again. I went in for a back problem and now I'm 90% back to normal and working on their stretches to make it 100%. No pain meds!!!!
