-Radial Shock Wave Therapy (Zimmer) for chronic joint pain
-Importance of the nervous system and kinematic chain
The skeleton and muscles should not be viewed as separate from other parts of the body. The body is a whole and all parts interact. In chiropractic theory, the spine is particularly important as nerves travel from the spine to all parts of the body, including the internal organs.
A misaligned or poorly moving area may produce local pain, but this may also have an effect elsewhere. For example, a problem with your lower spine may cause your upper spine to compensate and you may experience symptoms in the upper section such as a headache. This is an example of an effect on the kinematic chain. The chain can also produce effects down the body, where a lower back problem may cause you to not walk properly and perhaps develop ankle or knee pain.
Nerves that travel from the spine to another part of the body may be irritated at the spine, but produce symptoms elsewhere, such as when a spinal problem may cause pain in the leg or numbness in the toes (sciatica).
