If you think about it, every joint in your body depends on the strength, integrity, and proper alignment of your other bones and joints. Your musculoskeletal system is made up of separate parts that all have to work together seamlessly to keep you moving freely.
When one or more of your joints starts experiencing issues with deterioration, pain, or poor alignment, the issue can actually throw your whole body out of whack.
That’s why the team of interventional pain management specialists at Performance Pain & Sports Medicine, also known as PPSM, recommends whole-body adjustments to new and existing patients suffering from biomechanical joint problems.
Under the leadership of Dr. Matthias Wiederholz and Dr. Suzanne Manzi, our team treats patients from locations in Houston, Texas, and Lawrenceville, New Jersey. PPSM emphasizes integrative and holistic aspects of healing, looking at your whole-body care needs instead of just focusing on the area where you’re experiencing symptoms.
Joint dysfunction can occur for a variety of reasons. If you’re dealing with joint dysfunction, the affected joint could have a reduced range of motion or atypical changes in muscle tone. Calcium buildup, inflammation, and scarring can also occur, resulting in joint pain or other discomfort.
Common types of joint dysfunction include:
Joint dysfunction can even result in back pain!
No matter where your dysfunctional joint is located in your body, the issue can cause secondary effects beyond just localized discomfort or loss of motion. For example, if you have joint issues in your lower body, you might adjust your gait or posture to try and stay comfortable, putting abnormal pressure on other nearby or related joints.
With a whole-body therapeutic manual adjustment approach, the team at PPSM can improve joint biomechanics all around your trunk and extremities. A whole-body adjustment can also help to reduce nervous system interference in your joint functioning and health.
We draw on extensive training and expertise to put together the whole-body adjustment plan that works for you, combining a range of adjustment techniques to fully address every part of your biomechanical troubles. We look to both your extremities and your core, making sure your whole body functions smoothly without any hidden pockets of dysfunction.
Just bracing and treating an injured joint can leave you suffering from related issues in other parts of your body years down the line. Don’t let a single dysfunctional joint throw off your whole system. Instead, address the problem at a whole-body level for long-term recovery and physical health.
We can combine your adjustment with physical therapy, chiropractic care, or other specialties for more complete healing results.
