Arm Pain

CHIROPRACTIC AND ARM PAIN

Arm PainChiropractors often find that in cases of arm pain, injuries to muscles, joints and ligaments in the neck are often overlooked. It is very common to have referred pain from these structures causing pain in the arm. Here we will cover some conditions that are often seen by a chiropractor that also relate directly with the structures of the arm.

There are thirty bones, over forty muscles and fourteen major nerves making your arm more diligent, dexterous and adaptable than any tool mankind can emulate. Arm pain is a warning signal and should not be ignored. Often arm pain is caused by injury to the area of pain, but it can also be an indication of a more serious underlying problem.

Positions that strain muscles repetitively are likely to result in an insidious onset of wrist or forearm pain such as carpal tunnel syndrome or lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow).

ARTHRITIS

Arthritis is the body's way of trying to stabilize unstable joints. Joints can become unstable for many reasons from trauma to overuse. If joints are allowed to remain unstable, they start to fuse stopping you from carrying on with everyday activities. The wrist and hands are often the first place arthritis attacks.

CONSTANT OVERUSE

Constant overuse or micro trauma can go unnoticed on a daily basis. If you go to the gym, play raquetball, use a computer, play musical instruments or even text on a mobile phone enough, then overuse is a likely cause of pain.

ARM PAIN DUE TO POOR POSTURE.

One of the most common postural distortions is that of forward head and forward shoulders. This shift of posture causes muscular tension in the shoulders and the neck; as a result of having to cope with the weight of the head (the average head weighs as much as a bowling ball!) Muscular tension can cause pain to be referred into the arm causing a deep ache that often gets worse as the day goes on.

A PAIN IN THE NECK CAN LEAD TO ARM PAIN

When neck pain is caused by a muscle strain, aches and stiffness may spread to the upper arm and forearm. Shooting pain that spreads down the arm into the hand and fingers can be a symptom of a pinched nerve in the neck. When a nerve has been pinched in the neck, numbness and weakness of the hands or arms, as well as pain, may occur.

CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

Your Chiropractor will examine you and conduct diagnostic tests to determine exactly what is causing your arm pain. Once the problem has been pinpointed, the appropriate chiropractic treatment will begin. Through treatment and with a few modifications to your lifestyle, your Chiropractor will correct the cause of your pain.

Since spinal discs have a very poor blood supply, they also depend upon the circulation of joint fluids to bring in nutrients and expel waste. If a spinal joint loses its normal motion and this pumping action is impaired, the health of the disc deteriorates. Like a wet sponge, a healthy disc is flexible. A dry sponge is hard, stiff, and can crack easily. This is how many disc problems begin.
