When joints are out of alignment due to an injury or chronic condition, they experience internal pressure that can cause the cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and bones to break down. Realigning the joints returns them to their ideal configuration so they can work as intended.
Joint pain and discomfort often occur as a symptom of a larger issue. Naples Community Injury Center’s chiropractic professionals offer personalized Naples extremity injury treatments designed to address the full scope of your condition. We combine chiropractic adjustments, extremity injury chiropractic treatments, and physiotherapy methods tailored to your needs. Call us at (239) 631-5445 to schedule your first appointment.

Advantages of Our Naples Extremity Injury Chiropractic Treatments
An extremity adjustment is a chiropractic adjustment in which a licensed chiropractor manipulates the joints of extremities, including the hips, shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, and ankles. Using mechanical and manual methods, a chiropractor can realign your joints to ensure optimal mobility.
When you suffer an injury to a joint or limb, it can affect every part of your body. For example, an injured knee can force you to adjust your posture and weight distribution, placing additional pressure on your hips, back, and ankles. Untreated, even a minor joint misalignment can lead to discomfort, pain, and stiffness in your whole body.
Our Naples extremity injuries treatment provides the following benefits:
Realignment of your joints and extremities relieves internal pressure created by the joint’s tight muscles and surrounding tissues. By gently rotating and realigning your extremities, we can release the pressure that has built up in the joint, thereby reducing stiffness and improving mobility.
Whether they were caused by an accident or a chronic condition such as arthritis, joint injuries are often painful. Nerves in the affected areas can send radiant pain even to distant parts of the body. Gentle adjustments to the affected extremities and joints can relieve pain and ease discomfort.
Enhances Load-Bearing Ability
An injured joint or extremity may not be able to bear weight. Once the acute trauma begins to heal, chiropractic adjustments of the extremities can keep your bones, joints, tendons, muscles, and other tissues in the correct position as they heal. With the right alignment, your extremities can heal and regain their strength.
Stiff joints are very common after an extremity injury. Targeted chiropractic adjustments throughout the healing process can loosen tight joints and muscles and enhance your flexibility.
Maximizes Range of Motion
Pain and stiffness from an extremity injury can reduce your mobility and range of motion. A combination of Naples extremity injury chiropractic treatment, spinal manipulation, and physiotherapy can help you regain the maximum range of motion in the affected extremities and surrounding areas.
Personalized Naples Extremity Injuries Treatment Plans
At Naples Community Injury Center, we know how even a minor injury can compromise your ability to engage in simple daily activities. Everybody is different, which is why our expert chiropractors and physiotherapists provide personalized treatment plans tailored to your needs.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments to the extremities, our Naples extremity injury treatment plans may include the following services:
Chiropractic adjustments refer to a variety of processes that gently realign the bones, joints, and soft tissues in the back and extremities. Our licensed chiropractors use evidence-based methods to adjust and realign your affected limbs and joints. Since misalignment or injury to one extremity can affect the entire body, we may include adjustments to other extremities, joints, and the spine to ensure optimal mobility and alignment.
Our licensed physiotherapists are trained in a wide range of methods that can improve strength, mobility, and flexibility while you heal. Physiotherapy services we may incorporate into your Naples extremity injuries treatment plan include:
- Massage therapy
- Resistance training
- Electrical stimulation (ES)
- Gait training
- Muscle energy techniques (MET)
Our Naples facility is fully equipped with treadmills, resistance bands, exercise balls, weights, and other equipment to facilitate your healing process.

What to Expect During Your Initial Naples Extremity Injuries Treatment

Based on your exam, we will work to create a specific Naples extremity injuries treatment plan to address your issues.
