What is Extremity Pain?

One of the most common complaints we hear at My Family Chiro in St George is about pain in the extremities. This affects the arm and leg due to aging, continued daily wear, and tear or abuse. Dr. Tom Johnson, our experienced chiropractor, will access the source of the pain and treat the surrounding muscles, joints, tendons, tissue, and ligaments, to relieve pain and get you back to your normal routine in no time.

Types of Extremities Pain

Lower Extremity Pain – Lower extremities are connected to and controlled by nerves that are located in the lower back and spine. There are many reasons pain in these areas can happen including mechanical stress or trauma. This type of pain affects the leg, hip, knee, or foot. It is typically caused by lower body injuries including fractures, knee replacement surgeries, repetitive movements like running, and even arthritis.

Upper Extremity Pain – – Upper extremities pain is typically to blame on overuse and daily wear-and-tear. The wrist and shoulders are a common complaint and the type and of pain varies depending on the type of injury sustained. As a general rule, the more the activity is repeated, the higher the risk of injury. This type of pain also affects the hand and arm, It is typically caused by arthritis, tendon injuries, heavy lifting, carpal tunnel syndrome, and repetitive activities like typing.

How a Chiropractor Can Help with Extremities Pain

The exact treatment for extremity pain varies depending from patient to patient and depends on the cause and the injured body part. The same chiropractic techniques that are successful in helping with spinal pain are used to help relieve pain on other areas of the body. If you have issues with range of motion and impaired function, these adjustments can give you relief when other treatments have failed. For long-term pain relief, regular chiropractic care can help utilize the body’s alignment to aid in its ability to function better and heal. And unlike painkillers, there are no negative side effects or risk for addiction.
