Chiropractic adjustments can be highly beneficial for your extremities, such as the joints in your hands, wrists, ankles, and knees. Extremity adjustments refer to chiropractic manipulations for the joint in your body other than those along the spinal column.
This can include adjustments to the joints for your elbows, wrists, fingers, knees, ankles, hips, and toes. Misalignment in the joints anywhere on the body can cause discomfort due to inflammation or damage to the surrounding soft tissues.

Frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, involves stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint that can continue for up to two to three years. The condition is usually caused by conditions or lifestyle choices that keep the shoulder still for long periods.
For example, long periods spent working on the computer can create repetitive stress on the shoulder. A frozen shoulder may also occur during recovery after surgery or an arm fracture.
