ARM & LEG
It is almost always caused by pressure on the spinal nerve root by either the facet of the vertebra or by the disc itself.
The symptoms of this inflammation include:
Pain down the course of the nerve
Numbness down the course of the nerve
Electrical shocks or pulsations (rare)
Paresthesia - fuzzy, tingling or pins and needles feeling as if your arm, leg, hand, foot is going to sleep
Hot, burning sensation
Due to the complexity of the joints and the vast number of possible causes of your leg or arm pain, it is important to have a professional evaluation to determine the source. Using a combination of a thorough review of your medical history, a physical examination, and advanced imaging techniques, a chiropractor can get a comprehensive picture that will lead to the root cause of your pain.
Using non-invasive and carefully applied adjustments, chiropractors assist the body in gently re-positioning the vertebrae which can provide both instant and long term relief.
