Chiropractic for Arm and Leg Pain

Chiropractic for Arm and Leg Pain

It’s vital that you don’t dismiss arm or leg pain and address it straight away!

Do you experience any of the following?

  • Numb or tingling in your hands or feet
  • Limbs that feel weak with movement
  • Pain in isolated areas when moving your body into different positions
  • Shooting pain down leg/s or arm/s

Arm or leg pain can be caused by a variety of factors.  An imbalance of your knee, ankle, elbow or wrist could be the reason, but more commonly it’s caused by your spine! Your spine provides nerves to your limbs, so an imbalance in your spine might be contributing to the firing of these nerves and associated numbness, tingling or pain.

 It’s common for the lower back to be involved with pain in the leg. Similarly pain in the arm is often related to an issue with the neck. This is why we don’t focus solely on the affected limb, but also include your spine in how we address the problem. It’s almost never a case of the issue being isolated to the area of discomfort!

When you come in to see us, we will review your medical history and complete a thorough examination to see how much your spine is contributing to your limb pain.  If we are concerned about a systemic issue, we may refer you to your GP for further testing. We know that this pain can be complex and temperamental, so we will build on your spinal corrections by helping you make any changes in your lifestyle that could be aggravating it.  This includes exercise, nutrition, sleep, stress and more. We know your body is capable of so much more than just being pain-free…and we know how to get you there.
