Chiropractic Care For Arm and Leg Pain

The shoulder and hip joints are among the body’s most active and flexible joints. They are also common sources of injury and pain for many patients at our Eden Prairie chiropractic clinic. These injuries can be due to overuse or sports-related accidents and can vary from mild discomfort to severe immobility. 

Treatment for Arm and Leg Pain

Figuring out the exact cause of arm or leg pain on your own can be challenging. If you’ve had a clear injury, like straining a joint from repetitive work movements, dislocating a shoulder during sports, or pinching a nerve from sleeping in an uncomfortable position, it might be easy to pinpoint why you’re hurting.

However, if your arm or leg pain develops gradually over time without any clear injury, or if the pain from a past injury lingers and becomes chronic, it can be confusing and you might need a detailed examination to find the root cause. Several conditions, such as bursitis, arthritis, and tendinitis, can lead to arm and leg pain, but misalignments (subluxations) in the neck and lower back vertebrae are often the main culprits of chronic pain. If the spaces where nerves exit the spine are narrowed due to misaligned vertebrae or discs, this can irritate the nerves and cause pain along their entire length, from the spine right down to the fingertips and toes.

Neck Pain Chiropractic Care

Many people are surprised to learn how nerves travel such long distances in the body. This means that damage to the vertebrae can result in pain anywhere along the arms and legs. For example, the pain patterns of sciatica, which extend from the hip to the foot, illustrate how injuries in the spine can affect different parts of the body.
