Visit our Evansville chiropractic office when you need help with chiropractic adjustments. At Integrated Physical Medicine, Dr. Eric Mitz is an expert at joint manipulation. The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury from trauma or from a disease process like arthritis. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and reduced function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal. Dr. Mitz is skilled at adjusting all joints including those in the feet and hands, the wrist, knee, hips and shoulders.
