What Does A Chiropractor Do?

A chiropractor is a specialist who uses chiropractic adjustments on your  muscles and bones to provide pain relief. . The human body (muscles, bones, and tendons) is designed to follow specific biomechanics to carry out movement without pain and cramps.

Issues like subluxations of the spine, poor posture, strains, and sprains lead to a deviation from the natural setup.

The chiropractor starts by identifying the cause of the pain (arm and leg) and then plans the treatment accordingly. He examines the kinematic chain to identify the culprit (arm, shoulder, neck, knee, or buttocks, etc.). Your chiropractor may also ask you to get an X-ray done.

The chiro sets your limbs (arms and legs) and spine back to the natural alignment via gentle chiropractic adjustments. Even pain from arthritis can be treated by chiropractic adjustments.

FAQ Seattle Chiropractor​

Why do my arm and leg ache?

Your arm and legs may ache due to improper posture while working or using the cellphone. Persistent slouching of the neck or bent posture can strain the muscles of the upper back and arm.

Carrying a wallet in your back pocket can also lead to pain in the buttocks and neck i.e. wallet neuritis. You may also suffer from a frozen shoulder which a chiropractor for frozen shoulders can treat.

Can a chiropractor fix leg pain?

Yes, a leg pain specialist is trained to fix your leg ache. The spinal alignment is very important in the normal working of the body. The chiropractic adjustments improve blood flow to the muscles/bones and reduce inflammation and pain.

Chiropractic management is proved to be better than any other pain-relieving procedure in a study on low back pain.

Can a chiropractor help with arm pain?

Yes, a chiropractor identifies the different types of arm pains i.e. injury, nerve compression, postural, exertional, or spinal, etc. He then resets your muscles and bones to their ideal position and balances the weight on the muscles.

Improved blood flow to the muscles and alignment of the spine removes inflammation/pain and increases nourishment.

Can back pain cause pain in the arms and legs?

Yes, upper back pain is frequently associated with pain in the arms, and lower back pain is found associated with pain in the legs. Neuropathic pain from the back radiates to the leg in 76% of the cases (below the knee), as shown by a study.
