Extremity Conditions

Weakness, pain, and reduced function of the muscles and joints of the extremities can be a challenge to diagnose, requiring the skill of a specialized extremity chiropractic care professional. If you suffer from pain in your shoulder, ankle, hand or other extremities, we offer a range of therapeutic modalities that can help. Here at Circle Chiropractic Center, PC in Fairfax, we offer all of our patients the benefit of the highest quality of diagnosis, care, and treatment for a range of extremity conditions to reduce and eliminate pain, restore function, and return strength to the affected areas. 


The extremities are normally quite durable and resilient parts of our bodies. Relatively free of vital organs, the arms, legs, shoulders, and hips can endure a great deal of use and abuse compared to other parts of the body. However, with time, or with a sudden severe injury- chronic conditions can develop. Metabolic conditions can also result in pain and stiffness that affect the extremities. Some of the most common conditions that affect extremities include:

  • Muscle strains and tears
  • Arthritis
  • Dislocations
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Rotator cuff tendinitis
  • Shoulder pain and impingements
  • Plantar fasciitis

The Causes of Extremity Conditions

There are a wide range of causes and conditions that can result in harm to the extremities. These include a poor diet, athletic activity, work-related injury, repetitive motion strain, and more. People who work at a desk every day are prone to developing tendinitis or carpal tunnel syndrome. Athletes, on the other hand, are prone to incurring sudden injuries, plantar fasciitis, or rotator cuff tendinitis. People from all walks of life have different risk profiles which can lead to a variety of conditions.

Treating Extremity Conditions

Selecting the appropriate treatment will depend on the nature of the injury or condition and the overall health of the patient. Here at Circle Chiropractic Center, our chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Frey will take a comprehensive approach to treat extremity conditions. Patients receive a thorough initial examination and will have any questions they may have thoroughly answered.

  • Corrective exercises
