We define the extremities as the wrist, hand, elbow, ankle, and foot. Although the extremities are small in size compared to other parts of the body, they have the potential to create big pain. Severe plantar fasciitis can be almost crippling, and a high ankle sprain can keep you from walking for several weeks. Luckily, with the modern technology we employ including 3 kinds of lasers and RRT therapy, we can effectively address these kinds of injuries. The reason that extremity injuries can almost make you feel certain you’ve broken something (even though you can’t remember doing anything that extreme) is that a very small misalignment in the hands or feet can cause excruciating pain. At Utah Sports and Wellness, we can quickly assess your problem and provide conservative treatment to fix the problem in usually a very short time period. Sometimes, correction is as simple as making a few adjustments to the area and doing a little soft tissue work. We’ve helped countless athletes get back to their training and make their race commitment over our 31 years; we would like the opportunity to help you as well.
