When considering the biomechanics of your posture, there’s a lot more to consider than just your spine. Your feet, knees, hips, shoulders, and more all play a part in the way you stand, sit, move, and feel. In your initial exam at Living Well Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Wilcox examines your spine and your extremities. He will check your shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles and feet.  Some patients have been to other offices for months and years and have never had their extremities evaluated. They have learned to tolerate extremity aches, pains, and weaknesses and think they hurt because they are getting older or some other excuse.In many cases Dr. Wilcox is able to eliminate or reduce pain in these areas, without drugs or surgery.If you have stiffness or pain in your shoulders, wrists, knees, feet or more, or if you suspect there’s more contributing to your back pain issue than just your spine, contact us to set up your initial exam.
