Arm and Leg Pain Options

chiropractor near you may be able to help arm and leg pain

Do you have arm and leg pain in Fox Chapel? Most people don't understand how much we use our arms and legs throughout the day. In fact, our shoulder and hip joints are two of the most mobile and frequently used joints in our bodies. This combination of frequency and mobility has led to a wide range of possible injuries and sources of pain. Our Fox Chapel chiropractic clinic is here to help.

Sometimes people enter Tauberg Chiropractic & Rehabilitation completely aware of what caused their pain; maybe it is a weekend warrior who overused the joint in an athletic competition, an unfortunate participant in a car accident, a person lifting two much weight at work or home, or a grandmother who fell asleep holding their grandchild in one position all night. Typically, these situations cause almost an immediate pain or discomfort as a result of muscle, bone, or nervous system damage and irritation.

However, many people develop arm and leg pain gradually over time and are relatively unaware of what may have caused it. When the patient is perplexed by what may have caused the pain, arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, and frozen shoulder become likely suspects. In addition to these sources of pain, switching or taking new medications such as antibiotics, birth control, and anxiety medications may contribute to development of arm and leg pain.

If this list of possible causes wasn’t confusing enough, it has also been shown that arm and leg pain can be caused by “referred pain”. This pattern of pain is often used to describe the sensation of pain down the left arm that people feel during the start of a heart attack. Another example of a referred pain pattern is the pain that an inflamed gall bladder causes under the right shoulder blade. Our doctors at Tauberg Chiropractic & Rehabilitation will do their best to determine the source of your arm or leg pain. With this information we will be able to tell you if conservative care is the right choice for you.
