Our Richmond chiropractor, Dr. Teresa Green is trained in extremity adjusting. Joint complaints involving toes, feet, ankles, knees, hips, fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulder, ribs and TMJ can often be helped with chiropractic care.
Many complaints in the extremities are due to mechanical dysfunctions. Not all chiropractors adjust extremities. Extremity adjusting can improve joint mechanics, often instantly. In the event that chiropractic does not resolve these complaints, we can help you navigate the health care system and refer you to the correct specialist to best help resolve your condition.
