Arm and Leg Pain Specialist

The shoulder and hip joints are important for mobility. However, they are also commonly injured and a source of pain. There are multiple causes for arm and leg pain like muscle spasms, sprains, strains, a frozen shoulder, or something severe, like spinal nerve compression.

Some conditions may get better on their own with lifestyle modifications, and painkillers may provide relief. However, it’s essential to recognize the situation and provide appropriate care before it gets severe. 

Chiropractors utilize non-invasive and carefully applied adjustments to help the body gently realign the vertebrae, which can provide both immediate and long-term comfort. If you are experiencing arm or leg pain, don’t wait for it to become unbearable, schedule a consultation with a Seattle chiropractor.

Home Remedies For Arm And Leg Pain

Arms and legs are essential structures for mobility and carrying out basic tasks. Most of the time, self-care and over-the-counter medicine and treatments can help resolve the pain.

Avoid repetitive movements that stress the area and take more breaks. If you suffer from arm pain due to overexertion or a compressed nerve, you can try:

  • Taking rest
  • Applying a cold compress on the sore area about twenty minutes thrice a day
  • Applying a compression bandage to reduce swelling
  • Elevating the arm above the heart level reduces the swelling

Chiropractic Care For Leg Pain And Arm Pain

Medicines, however, only mask the pain temporarily and do not treat the cause. It is better to avoid the prolonged use of medication because it has negative impacts on the liver. Chiropractic care offers a better non-invasive, drug-free, non-surgical treatment option. 

Misaligned vertebrae trigger most arm and leg pain from the neck and spine. It’s because misaligned bones and discs lead to reduced flexibility, inflamed nerves inflame, and pain throughout the body.

Chiropractic adjustments are thus used to treat most types of arm and leg pain. We may also advise massage therapy, wellness care, exercises, physical therapy, and acupuncture according to the condition.

Frequently Asked Questions About Arm And Legs Pain

Why do my arm and leg ache?

Your arm and legs may ache due to improper posture while working or using a cell phone. 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 chiropractors help with inflammation?

Adjustments made by a chiropractor could reduce cytokine production in the body. These are proteins that have a role to play in the regulation of inflammation. 

How do you know if you have arthritis in your neck?

Also known as cervical spondylosis, arthritis in the neck is characterized by stiffness, pain, and swelling in the area. This type of arthritis also causes headaches, muscle spasms in the shoulders, and the neck, and poor balance. There could also be a grinding noise when the neck is moved.
