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 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.

Upper back pain due to pinching of the nerve can cause pain radiating into the arm. This pain subsides if the muscle strain of the neck and nerve impingement is released, which is possible through gentle chiropractic adjustments.
