Dr. Rafiq: Hand & Foot Chiropractor

Doctor Rafiq adjusting a wrist and handDr. Rafiq is a trained expert in performing specific, gentle adjustments to the 27 bones of the wrist/hand, and the 26 bones of the feet. The idea of having your hands and feet adjusted is a whole new concept to most people, because they relate chiropractic to adjusting the spine.

Dr. Rafiq provides hand and foot patients with gentle, specific adjustments to the misaligned bones of the hands/feet and other joints to help restore function, provide relief and ultimately get to the root cause of the problem.

Most chiropractors focus on spinal problems, but Dr. Rafiq focuses on joint extremities: hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, feet, ankles, and knees. After years in practice, Dr. Rafiq realized that most patients with lower back pain had misalignment in their feet. This began her training as a Hand & Foot Chiropractor.

Plantar Fasciitis

Doctor Rafiq adjusting a footMany people suffering with Plantar Fasciitis will try different shoes, orthotics, foot straps, painful injections, or even surgery to control their pain. Wearing orthotics may help you feel better, but it will not correct the misalignments in the foot and ankle. Surgery, injections and orthotics are ineffective tactics used to provide short-term relief. In fact, surgery carries significant risks and should be avoided if possible Have you ever thought about getting your feet adjusted? Dr. Rafiq has a high success rate of eliminating foot pain, with gentle foot adjustments. No gimmicky products needed!

Not only do foot adjustments help with Plantar Fasciitis, but they help many other conditions of the foot, and ankle as well. Did you know that foot adjustments can help treat Bunions, Flat Feet, and even High Arches? You are not stuck with Flat Feet or High Arches! We can adjust the feet so that you can have more normal arches in your feet, therefore restoring normal foot bio-mechanics. Many times, lower back pain and other conditions have been resolved after a patient has their feet adjusted. Here are some other conditions treated by simply adjusting the feet:

  • Heel Pain
  • Heel Spur Syndrome
  • Bottom of Foot Pain
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Ankle Sprains
  • Ankle Pain
  • Arch Pain
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Ball of Foot Pain
  • Bunions
  • Tailor’s Bunions (Bunionette)
  • Hammertoe
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Generalized Foot Pain
  • Flat Feet
  • Over Pronation
  • High Arches
  • Sever’s Disease
  • Haglund’s Deformity
  • Shin Splints
  • Compartment Syndrome
  • Knee Pain

Carpal Tunnel

Can you go a day without using your hands? We can’t either! That is why it is so important to take care of our hands and wrists. Because of repeated stress such as holding our phones, working on a computer for hours at a time, and carrying several bags of groceries in 1 trip instead of multiple trips, we cause misalignment to the tiny bones in our wrists and hands. These misalignment can cause numbness, tingling, and pain in our hands, and can lead to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other dysfunctions. By adjusting these tiny bones, we restore proper motion into these joints. In most cases, this alleviates the symptoms because it treats the cause of the problem!

Not only do Hand and Wrist adjustments help with Carpal Tunnel, but they also help with conditions such as:

  • Median Nerve Entrapment
  • Carpal Tunnel of Guyon Syndrome
  • Ulnar Nerve Entrapment
  • De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis
  • Pronator Teres Syndrome
  • Supinator Syndrome
  • Radial Tunnel Syndrome
  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Hand Pain
  • Wrist Pain
  • Wrist/Hand Sprains
  • Repetitive Strain Injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Golfer’s Elbow
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Rotator Cuff Injuries
  • Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder)

I can't recommend this place enough! I've had reoccurring knee pain for years and other professionals have advised me to just ice it or given me anti-inflammatory medicine. But Dr Rafiq didn't just try to treat the pain, she actually found the cause of the issue (my hip) and went straight to fixing that! If that weren't enough, the office is a well put together, calm environment and her office manager is such a friendly face to see when you first walk in. 10/10 I will return!

I love this place! The staff is very friendly and accommodating and Dr. Rafiq is amazing! She's very talented when it comes to figuring out what's going on and effective treatment methods. She's quite honest as well and won't try to con you into more treatments than you need or extra services just to get more money out of you. If you're in need of a good chiropractor then you need to go see Dr. Rafiq! Your spine with thank you for it :).
