The hip and shoulder joints are among the most mobile and frequently used joints in the body. They are also a frequent site of injury and pain for many people we see in our Fort Myers chiropractic clinic. Injury, stiffness, and soreness come from overuse, car accidents and even sports injuries. Severity can range from mild discomfort to severe pain and even immobilization.
The following information is on some of the most common issues that can lead to arm, shoulder, and leg pain, as well as a description of how chiropractic adjustments can help to alleviate and even reverse symptoms and damage.
ARM AND LEG PAIN IN FORT MYERS, FLORIDA
The source of the pain can be difficult to diagnose yourself unless it stemmed from an obvious injury like repetitive stress movements on a joint through a pattern at work, injuring a shoulder during sports, or pinching a nerve by sleeping in an awkward position. When pain develops gradually over time without an obvious injury or accident, or when the pain from an injury has become chronic and the source becomes muddled, you may be in need of a professional assessment to determine the source.
There are a number of different possible root causes for leg or arm pain. They may include: bursitis, arthritis, and tendinitis, but subluxations of the vertebrae in the back or neck are responsible for the majority of chronic leg and arm pain complaints. If the spacing where the nerves begin in the spine become narrowed because the vertebrae or discs are out of position, the nerves become irritated. This produces pain running down the entire nerve path.
The Result: injuries to the spinal vertebrae can cause pain anywhere along the entire length of the arm and leg.
