Extremities Pain

Extremity Pain

restless leg

When you think of a chiropractor, you probably (and correctly) assume that this type of healthcare professional is all about the spine. But chiropractic care offers much more than lower back pain relief. Our St George chiropractor, Dr. Tom Johnson, also helps hundreds of people from the surrounding area recover naturally from injuries in the extremities.

Common Causes Of Extremities Pain

Arm and leg injuries can involve virtually any type of connective tissue, including muscle, ligament, tendon, spinal nerve, bone, and fascia. Many patients often complain of extremities pain following an auto accident injury, sports injury, repetitive stress or workplace injury, or some other slip, trip or fall.

Common diagnoses evaluated and treated at our St George chiropractic clinic include:

  • Shoulder: rotator cuff strain, bicep tendon tear or tendonitis, adhesive capsulitis, shoulder dislocation/hypermobility
  • Elbow: golfer's elbow (medial epicondylitis) and tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
  • Wrist & Hand: carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Hip: adductor strain, hamstring strain
  • Knee: runner's knee (patellofemoral syndrome), ligament sprain, quadriceps strain, meniscal tear
  • Ankle & Foot: shin splints, Achilles' tendonitis, plantar fasciitis

We also treat other general conditions that can lead to extremities pain including fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, sciatica, arthritis, and other types of nerve impingement.

St George Chiropractic Treatment Of Extremities Pain

Arm or leg pain will vary depending on the underlying cause, severity, mechanism of injury, and several other factors unique to the individual patient and circumstance. Dr. Johnson is highly skilled in identifying the root factors that are contributing to your extremities pain. He can also help devise a customized treatment plan that will help your own body heal itself.

In the acute phase of an injury, the main goals of chiropractic treatment are to promote pain relief and tissue healing by increasing blood flow, reducing inflammation, stimulating and organizing cellular repair, normalizing nervous system function, and restoring normal motion. This is achieved by several techniques, including cold laser therapy, spinal adjustment, spinal decompression, ultrasound, and massage therapy.

Recurring and chronic dysfunction can also be avoided through corrective exercise prescription, body mechanics re-education, postural re-training, and nutritional counseling. Chiropractic care is also helpful for restoring normal pain-free range of motion and preventing scar tissue adhesions during the subacute and chronic phases of a bone fracture.
