ARM AND LEG PAIN IN Potomac Falls VA
Most people, unaware of how their pain started, live with their pain as it develops. Common causes of these mysterious aches and pains include vertebral subluxations, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis and frozen shoulder. When conventional treatment is sought, doctors will typically offer a drug to take. However, medications can sometimes result in unwanted side effects without truly addressing the source of your pain.
“Referred pain” is another reason for arm and leg pain. This is essentially when another issue in the body is sending nerve pain signals down your arms. For instance, shooting pain down the left arm can be an early sign of a heart attack. Inflamed gallbladders have also been known to cause shoulder pain.
At Active Lifestyle Medical VA, we most frequently pinpoint the underlying cause of pain to be nerve irritation in the spine. Nerve irritation occurs when discs or vertebrae are misaligned and exert pressure on the nerves. These nerves that are responsible for feeling throughout the whole spine and body are then not able to function properly and pain can result. This explains why damage to your spine can cause issues far from the source of the pain.
