Arm pain is common and can involve muscles, joints (elbow, wrist, shoulder), and tendons. Pain can be in one area or spread out. Most often, pain happens after an injury or a fall. However, one must be alert to sudden pain, which goes away when resting. This can be a sign of a heart attack. Pain usually happens in the left arm. Do not wait to talk with a doctor if these symptoms happen.

The legs are open to pain and can be caused by many things. Leg pains can be very painful and come on fast or, the pain can slowly happen over a period of time. Pains that come on fast and painfully can be treated in most cases by resting.

Chiropractor Treatment for Arm & Leg Pain

The pain of the arm can be from many different reasons. To better understand the cause, the doctor try to find out:

  • Was there an accident?
  • Where is the pain at?
  • What kind of injury is it?
  • What kind of symptoms are you having?

An X-ray can help the doctor, if needed, to make the diagnosis. Bone-related pain (whether it is a fracture or a tumor) is made worse by lifting heavy things. If the pain is in the nerve, it will mainly feel like electric shocks, “stabbing”, burning or tingling. In some cases, the pain comes from the shoulder and moves into the arm. It is often the rotator cuff, in the shoulder, that is involved.

Shoulder pain
common injuries

The most common injuries of the arm include sprains (wrist, elbow), fractures, tendinitis, and elbow narrowing. The famous “tennis elbow”, which is tendonitis of the elbow (also known as epicondylitis), is very common. Tendinitis of the wrist is also common. Tendonitis of Quervain, typically, causes pain on the outer edge of the wrist, which hinders the movements of the thumb. Musicians (guitarists or violinists for example) are often subject to this type of problem. Bursitis (inflammation of a serious bursa, a kind of liquid pocket – located around the joints) causes a sharp pain associated with inflammation: it often affects the shoulder but can also affect the elbow.

Causes of Leg Pain

Blood circulation comes into play in many leg pains (arteritis, venous insufficiency). They are in particular following the formation of a blood clot which blocks the blood flow and inflates the affected leg. This happens in case of phlebitis, which can be superficial (often related to varicose veins) or a medical emergency if the vein is deep (risk of pulmonary embolism). Hospitalization is then required, as well as treatment with anticoagulants and wearing compression stockings, and in some cases surgery.

Nerves that make the leg painful

The narrowing of a nerve in the lower back or sciatic neuralgia are conditions that can radiate pain throughout the leg.

In addition, diabetes or excessive consumption of alcohol promote certain forms of nerve degeneration in the legs that cause pain, tingling, loss of sensitivity and motor disorders. Any unusual pain in the legs should be diagnosed anyway.
