Arm and Leg Pain
Pain is your body’s way of communicating to you that something is wrong. It is important not ignore symptoms such as shooting pain, tingling, or numbness that persist over a period of six weeks or more. Arm and leg pain can result from injuries to these body parts as well as nerve damage or compression in the spine. If left untreated, symptoms can develop into debilitating chronic pain that will negatively impact the quality of your life. Consult with the professionals at Chiropractor in Mandeville, LA | Covington, LA for treatment options to start addressing your pain today.
Origin of the Pain
While it is easy to assume that any pain you are feeling in your arm or leg originates from that part of your body, the actual cause of arm and leg pain can often be traced back to a spinal issue. Pinched nerves or spinal compression can lead to painful sensations in the extremities. The cause of arm and leg pain can be diagnosed by the symptoms a patient is presenting. Arm and leg pain caused by a problem in the spine is typically accompanied by tingling or numbness. Spinal manipulation therapy can alleviate the pain and reduce symptoms in these cases.
Options for Treatment
There are several possible treatment options available for patients suffering from arm and leg pain. Physicians may prescribe pain killers or recommend surgical procedures to correct the underlying issue, however, these treatment options can often be risky and expensive. The doctor may also refer the patient to a chiropractor for care. At Chiropractor in Mandeville, LA | Covington, LA, we offer personalized treatment plans that consist of spinal manipulation therapy, massage therapy, and/or physical therapy based on our own diagnosis of the patient.
