What Is Extremity Mobilization?

Extremity mobilization refers to chiropractic manipulation and other mobilization techniques performed to the joints of the arms and legs. Often people think of Chiropractors as being just “back doctors,” but Chiropractors are trained in manipulation of ALL joints, not just the spine. And, since the body is so interconnected, extremity joint problems can create back problems, and vice-versa. For example, a runner with decreased joint mobility at the ankle is going to have much more stress from the impact of each step being transferred up the kinetic chain, which can cause SI joint dysfunction and lower back pain. Treating just the lower back for the pain will only be partially effective, since the cause of the pain is actually at the ankle. Therefore the doctors at Body Logic will address any areas of joint restriction, not just pertaining to the spine.
