It’s very common to have referred to pain from these spinal structures in the back causing sometimes unbearable pain in both the arm and occasionally nerve impingement too. Now you can read about forearm related arm pain here. Often, arm pain is just caused by damage to this most delicate part of the body but it can also often be a sign of a much more serious underlying issue. Chiropractic treatment can certainly help here by working on your alignment and range of motion along with stretches and strengthening exercises designed to improve the integrity of your spine and vertebrae.
Other conditions which sometimes manifest themselves with numbness, tingling or weakness in the arm or even hand can be the result of arthritis. Arthritis can affect the joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones. Chiropractic treatment will usually treat the symptoms, and in some instances, cure the disease altogether by realigning and stabilizing your musculoskeletal system and joints. The cause of the deterioration of your joints can often be difficult to identify, but chiropractic treatment can usually make a lot of sense here especially when it is accompanied by regular assessments and examinations of your posture and daily activity levels.
Often chiropractors will perform gentle stretches and exercises that will help to gradually increase the range of motion of your joints and encourage a healthy lymphatic flow through your vessels and nerves. Arthritis can be a difficult disease to treat but chiropractors understand how difficult it can be to accomplish so many changes in lifestyle that require so little effort. Arm and wrist pain can be greatly reduced with careful assessment, a correct diagnosis and the use of chiropractic adjustments and exercises.
