Chiropractic & Arm & Leg Pain

Do you have:

  • Shooting pain down one or both arms or legs
  • Pain that changes with change of body position
  • Joint or limb feels ‘weak’ with activity
  • Numbness or tingling in the hand or foot

Pain in the arm or leg is a warning signal and should not be ignored. While most people reach for over-the-counter pain medications to get rid of the pain, at Chiropractic Balance we ask ‘What is the cause of your arm or leg pain?’

Sometimes the cause of arm or leg pain is an imbalance of the knee, ankle, elbow or wrist. But frequently it is caused by imbalance of part of the spine (subluxation) that supplies nerves to that limb. Often arm pain is related to the neck, and leg pain is related to the lower back. Solely focusing on the limb in isolation may not solve the underlying problem(1)(2). In fact a recent study showed that 60% of people with back pain also has associated lower limb pain(1).

The good news is help is at hand: At Chiropractic Balance specialise in looking at your body as a whole. We examine the area of your pain as well as the rest of your body.

We want to get you out of pain and keep you like that so you can do the things you enjoy.

If you have arm or leg pain, at your first visit we will review your history and do a thorough examination to see if imbalance is causing your pain. If we can help, we will begin working on correcting it. But we don’t stop there, we also look at your lifestyle for what might have caused the problem in the first place. We help you focus on making supportive changes that can include exercise, nutrition, posture advice and wellbeing.
