At Destin Chiropractic, we specialize in Chiropractic extremity adjusting. We check for dysfunction in all of the extremities with the utilization of muscle testing during every visit. Mechanoreceptors are embedded in the tissues surrounding joints, when these tissues get stretched by a misalignment of the joint, this activates an inhibition or weakening of the adjacent muscle. Discovery of these weak muscles and correction of the misaligned joint to restore normal strength.
Extremity Adjusting is the treatment of the whole body that requires synchrony between the nervous system and the mechanical control system of the kinetic chain. Subluxations of any joint have both neurological and mechanical components. Many patients suffer repetitive subluxations and nerve entrapments because the mechanical component is ignored, leaving root causes undiscovered and untreated

Do you work on your feet all day? Sit at a desk all day? Lift heavy objects all day? A combination of all of the above? If so, chances are you have some extremity issues that need to be addressed. By not getting the proper extremity treatment, your body attempts to over- compensate, which could lead to more subluxations in other joints and your spine.
At Destin Chiropractic, we are equipped to help you gain relief from these abnormalities by properly aligning both the neurological system (spine) and the mechanical control system (extremities) of your body for optimum performance.
In the athletic environment, the body is often exerted beyond the normal scope of sound bio-mechanical function. Great athletes push through pain to win or to better their time. It is in these intense moments when the body is very susceptible to injury. Joints in the body can be stressed or harmed, and then ignored due to the nature of the competition. This lack of acknowledgement impairs the proper function of the joint and thus degrades the athletic performance.
