Chiropractic Arm and Leg Pain Treatment

Are you experiencing extremity pain? Your chiropractor can prescribe effective arm and leg pain treatment options.

Pain and reduced mobility of your arms and legs could be the result of spinal misalignment or injury. Without leg or arm pain treatment, you can end up with worsening pain, numbness, tingling, and even loss of strength.

Your Salina chiropractor can easily remedy the situation with different types of chiropractic adjustments and therapies.

Extremity Pain and the Link to Spinal Issues

It’s easy to think that hand, arm, leg, or foot issues are simply caused by conditions that affect those areas. However, if you’ve been trying to treat extremity pain without success, the issue could be related to your spine.

The spinal column consists of nerves that impact the entire body, including your extremities. Sometimes, patients who come into Chiropractic Wellness Center present with tingling in their elbow or fingers, thinking they have an issue with their hand or arm. Imagine their surprise when they find out that their neck is out of alignment.

The same thing can happen in just about any part of the body. The sciatic nerve, for example, is the body’s largest nerve bundle, running from the base of your back to your ankle. Sciatic nerve compression can occur when your spine is out of alignment, creating painful symptoms in the:

  • Lower back
  • Buttocks
  • Legs

Sometimes, nerve impingement can occur in the extremities. The bones of your arms, legs, hands, and feet can become misaligned. You’ll experience painful symptoms because there’s so much pressure on the nerves, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Your Chiropractic Arm and Leg Pain Treatment Plan

Your Salina chiropractor can treat arm and leg pain in two ways.

Spinal Realignment

Your leg and arm pain treatment plan is likely to include spinal adjustments. Gentle manipulation of the spine reduces nerve pain and improves the flow of:

  • Blood
  • Lymph
  • Cerebrospinal fluid

Good circulation keeps the muscles, joints, and other tissues healthy and lubricated.

Extremity Adjustment

Extremity adjustments involve adjusting the joints that are causing pain. Your chiropractor can adjust:

  • The jaw joints
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Ankles
  • Wrists
  • Elbows
  • Shoulders

Adjusting these joints:

  • Promotes better body mechanics
  • Relieves pressure on other parts of the body
  • Decreases referred pain
  • Allows you to continue living a normal, active lifestyle

Dealing with Pain? Talk to Your Salina Chiropractor First

Drs. Jeff and Maria Rapp want to do more than help you get out of pain. They want to reduce your pain in the least invasive way possible.

With chiropractic leg or arm pain treatment, you reduce your risk of needing addictive medications or surgical treatment. It’s even eliminated, in some cases.

Before you decide on a course of treatment, talk to your Salina chiropractor to get a second opinion. You may be pleasantly surprised!
