Arm’s-Length Diagnosis

Dr. Freedman
When patients suffer from elbow problems, the wrist and shoulder are also probably involved. Because of this, chiropractors are likely to make a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan that takes arm function into account. While the most common sign of elbow injury is a loss of motion in the flexion/extension plane, the chiropractor’s assessment will also include the rotary movements and the functions of nerves and muscles. In addition, because elbow pain is sometimes referred from other sites, the chiropractor will include a thorough upper-extremity and neck examination. The patient will also be asked questions that will help ascertain whether the injury represents a single acute event or a longstanding condition.

Chiropractic helps to remove postural imbalances and structural misalignments that can accumulate in our bodies over time. It works by restoring your own inborn ability to be healthy. To schedule an appointment for chiropractic care, please call FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC at 617-472-4220. Our office is located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy. We accept most major insurance plans.

 

P.S. If numbness or tingling accompanies elbow pain, nerve involvement is likely.

Chiropractor As Gait Keeper

Dr. Freedman
Simply stated, the term “gait” refers to the way a person walks. While walking may seem to be an uncomplicated activity, injuries, underlying conditions, or problems with the legs and feet can lead to an abnormal gait that can compromise a person’s mobility and health.

For this reason, chiropractors devote a good deal of their attention to evaluating the gait of their patients for signs of abnormal gaits such as “spastic gait” (dragging the feet), “scissor’s gait” (crossed legs that hit while walking), “steppage gait” (pointing the toes inward and scraping them on the ground), “waddling gait,” “propulsive gait” (head and neck pushed forward), and “limp.” Once diagnosed, chiropractors treat abnormal gait by determining and correcting the underlying cause.

A person’s gait can reveal problems in the feet, ankles, knees, and hips – even in spinal alignment. A problem with gait can indicate pain in a patient as well as serious conditions like diabetes and arthritis. To schedule an appointment, please call   at 617-472-4220. We accept most major insurance plans which included but not limited to Blue Cross Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim, Tufts, Mass Health Standard, Neighborhood Health Plan, Medicare, Network Health. Our family-oriented practice is located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy.

 

P.S. Because an individual with an abnormal gait may develop additional aches and pains associated with his or her walking pattern, it is important to address the problem.
