Q: How Can Chiropractic Care Help My Arm and Leg Pain?
A: As with any condition, you want to start with treating the most common and typical cause of the pain and symptoms first. Misalignment (subluxations) of the vertebrae in the neck and lower back are responsible for the vast majority of arm and leg pain. When bones or discs are out of position and lose their ability to move properly, they often cause irritation to the surrounding tissues, including the nerves.
Many patients are surprised when they see that the nerves in our body travel from the spine all the way to the ends of our fingertips and toes. As a result, injuries to the vertebrae in the spine can create the sensation of pain anywhere along our arms and legs. Through this pattern of treatment, patients at our clinic have experienced high levels of success through chiropractic treatment.
