Lots of hands, lots of feet
Certainly it is true that as most people know, you go to the chiropractor for spinal problems- neck, low back, sciatica, etc. To be sure because of the every day wear and tear of our lives, chiropractic is incredibly helpful for these problems.
However, often the every day repetition of our lives can also cause chronic and substantial symptoms in our hands and feet. It is important to tell everyone that fortunately back then in chiropractic school, we also studied hands and feet and the bones, ligaments, tendons and articulations that comprise our hands and feet.
Because there are 27 bones in each of our hands and 26 bones in each of our feet all the work and schlepping we do can create chronic problems due to mechanical functioning, or really mechanical dysfunction. Most of the problems people have in their hands and feet are not severe or unusual problems but they are common recurring problems.
So run, don't walk, to your local chiropractor or give our office a call because there are so many things that can be done with finger pain, wrist pain, elbow discomfort, ankle issues, foot problems, pain in our toes, etc. As I've said, many of these problems can be fixed with a little hands on effort, mechanical manipulative treatment, some stretching, and various other easy things to do.
Of course, please have a blessed and safe holiday with your family and loved ones.
Yours in good health,
Dr. Ray and Staff
