ARM AND LEG PAIN

Life can get tough if you cannot perform everyday tasks or move around comfortably. And this is what you can expect if you suffer from leg and arm pain. Leg and arm pain can result from various triggers like a benign frozen shoulder or even due to something serious like a pinched nerve.

Whatever the cause, it’s important that it’s diagnosed and properly treated.

The Revolution Health Center team has the know-how and expertise to treat the pain symptoms and causes and adopt preventative measures so that it doesn’t occur again.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF ARM AND LEG PAIN?

There are two types of arm and leg pain-primary and secondary. 

Primary pain is the pain that starts from the arm or leg and radiates through the body. In secondary pain, it is a pain in some other part of the body that eventually reaches the arm or legs.

The common symptoms of arm and leg pain are:

  • Muscle fatigue
  • Tingling and electrical shock-like sensations through the body
  • Weakness
  • Loss of bladder and bowel control
  • Muscle cramping
  • Finding it difficult to move around
  • Loss of sensation

Causes of Leg Pain

When it comes to the causes of leg and arm pain, it depends on whether the pain is secondary or primary.

Primary leg pain causes are:

  • Poor biomechanics
  • Muscle cramps
  • Ankle, hip, or knee injury
  • Tendon, muscle, ligament, or joint injury
  • Muscle strain or fatigue

Secondary leg pain causes include:

  • Medication side effects
  • Dehydration
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Disc problems like a herniated disc
  • Inflammation, pain, and muscle spasms because of subluxations or spinal bone misalignments

Chiropractic Care for Leg Pain

You can get temporary pain relief through painkillers and an ice pack. However, it’s better to turn to the more non-invasive and non-medical option of chiropractic care to treat the problem successfully. Chiropractic care helps by alleviating the alignment issues that trigger pain, inflammation, and muscle spasms in the first place.

We can fix pinched nerves that trigger muscle weakness and pain, disc herniation, and subluxations through gentle chiropractic adjustments.

Chiropractic adjustments also treat other complications accompanying arm and leg pain like numbness, tingling sensation, and muscle weakness.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT arm and legs pain

Is a chiropractor effective in treating leg pain?

Yes, chiropractors treat all types of arm and leg pain without using any medicine or surgical interventions. They use therapies like spinal manipulations, joint mobilization, and massage therapy to treat the condition. These therapies help relax any muscle spasms you may have and also releases the pressure and pain inflicted by compressed nerves. 

Can a chiropractor help with a pinched nerve in the arm?

We can help treat pinched nerves by re-aligning the spine and reducing any stress factor that pinches the nerve. An arm and leg specialist doesn’t just treat pinched nerves but also prevents them.
