Arm & Leg Injuries
Do your arms or legs hurt when you perform your everyday tasks? Do you take analgesics to help you manage the pain? Painkillers can treat only the symptoms. Taking pain killers frequently can also lead to addiction.
If you are living in Baltimore, Dr. Rudick can help you deal with your arm and leg pain and most likely get you back to where you want to be without the use of painkillers. Our Charm City Chiropractic facility has helped thousands of people over the years manage their arm and leg injuries and pain successfully.
What causes pain in the arms or legs?
Pain in the arms and the legs could be due to many reasons. The most common causes are neurological. It may even be possible that the muscles in the arms and legs are overused. Often, pain in the arms and legs can be traced back to the spine. Your symptoms may also include tingling or numbness.
The brachial plexus and lumbar plexus
Nerve fibers in the arm originate from the brachial plexus. This network of nerves starts from the spine, travels through the neck, crosses the armpit region, and finally extends up to the arms. Similarly, the nerves in the leg originate from the lumbar plexus. The lumbar plexus begins from the spinal cord in the lower back region.
What Chiropractic treatments do we provide?
Depending on your condition, Dr. Rudick and his team may use one or a combination of chiropractic manipulations, physiotherapy, cold therapy, manual traction, heat therapy, therapeutic exercises, ultrasound, electric muscle stimulation and a variety of other techniques to bring you relief from pain and discomfort.
Pain can spread to other parts of the arm and legs
Pain or discomfort may not be localized only to the arms and legs. Your wrist or elbow may also be hurting. This will make simple tasks difficult to perform. Leg pain may include pain in the feet, heels, ankles, or knees. A simple task such as walking may become difficult and even unbearable.
If you are facing any of these problems, we encourage you to visit our facility.
