Arm or Leg Pain in Casper?

Chiropractic Casper WY Extremities

The shoulder and hip joints are two of the most mobile and frequently used joints in the body. They are also a frequent site of injury and pain for many people we see in our Casper chiropractic clinic.  From overuse to sports injuries, the causes are many, and the results range from slight discomfort to complete immobilization. The following article from 307 Chiropractic Health Center gives information on some of the most common issues that lead to shoulder and leg pain, as well as a description of how chiropractic adjustments can help to reverse it.


Treatment for Arm and Leg Pain in Casper

The actual cause of arm or leg pain can be difficult to self-diagnose. If you have had an obvious injury, such as stressing a joint through a repetitive pattern at work, dislocating a shoulder playing sports, or pinching a nerve by falling asleep in an awkward position, the source of your immediate pain may be obvious. However, when pain in the arms or legs develops slowly over time without the occurrence of an obvious injury or accident, or when the pain from an injury has become chronic and the source becomes perplexing, you may be in need of a more thorough assessment to determine the source.

There are a number of different possible sources for the pain including bursitis, arthritis and tendinitis, but misalignments (subluxations) of the vertebrae in the neck and lower back are responsible for the vast majority of chronic arm and leg pain. If the spaces where the nerves leave the spine become narrowed because the vertebrae or discs are out of position, the nerve can become irritated, and often produces pain down its entire path. Many patients are surprised when they see that the nerves travel from the spine all the way to the ends of their fingertips and toes.

As a result, injuries to the vertebrae in the spine can create the sensation of pain anywhere along the entire length of the arms and legs. The pain patterns associated with sciatica, which run from the hip all the way to the foot, are a good example of how this works.


Chiropractic Treatment for Knee Pain

Dr. Wisroth is certified from Harvard Medical School in Lifestyle Medicine: Osteoporosis. He is confident that he is equipped with the skills and knowledge to manage your knee pain to the highest degree.

Knee pain can be caused by many combinations of factors, injury, arthritis, or repetitive movements. Many people develop knee pain over time and it has been shown that hip, knee, ankle, and leg pain is often caused by referred pain from somewhere else. Due to the complexity of the joints, it is important that you see someone who is trained in these areas.

  • We perform an individualized assessment and exam on each patient so we can figure out what is causing your pain.
  • Experience allows our team to be able to use the location of the knee pain, type of knee pain sensations, and swelling to assist in the diagnosis.

Getting the correct diagnosis is key in experiencing a quick recovery to knee pain.

We help many people with knee pain and would love to discuss your specific knee pain issue and how chiropractic may help.
