Extremity Pain & Numbness: Management & Treatment
Here at Hoewisch Family Chiropractic, our chiropractor in Santa Clara treats patients who are suffering from extremity pain. Pain in the upper or lower extremities can be debilitating, and symptoms such as numbness, weakness and tingling can affect your ability to work, play and go about your daily life. Read on to learn more about different types of extremity pain, their symptoms and how a Santa Clara chiropractor can help treat and manage your symptoms.
Upper Extremity Pain & Numbness
Most upper extremity issues affect the arms, shoulders, hands and wrists with the primary culprits being overuse or a form of tendonitis or carpal tunnel syndrome. However, certain injuries can also affect these areas, but symptoms may take time to present themselves. These conditions can cause numbness and tingling in the fingers and arms that could cause you to lose hand functioning and/or drop things. Upper extremity pain can also involve conditions such as soreness in the neck and shoulders that could also lead to headaches or migraines, as well as wrist and hand pain.
Pain in the Lower Extremities
If you’re experiencing discomfort in the lower extremities such as your lower back, legs, ankles and feet, you may experience a loss of sensation or mobility in your appendages. Some patients experience sore muscles and weakness in the legs, ankles and feet that can become unbearable and impede their ability to walk, drive and perform daily routines. Lower extremity pain is often due to overuse, distress, sprains, strains, inflammation and conditions such as certain types of arthritis and tendonitis. Lower back injuries can also irritate nerves and cause sciatic symptoms that cause leg numbness or a burning pain that radiates from the buttocks down into the foot. Chiropractic care can help with all of these conditions and symptoms.
