Sports injuries in Frisco TX are a major cause of pain and disability in the shoulder and hip joints. The following article from Starwood Chiropractic gives information on some common issues that lead to this type of injury as well as what chiropractic adjustments can do for you!
The best way to diagnose your arm or leg pain is by ruling out any obvious causes and then looking for a more subtle problem. If you’ve had an injury, such as stress on the joint through a work-related repetitive motion at a desk job, a dislocated shoulder after certain sports or recreational activities, or even a pinched nerve from sleeping in a bad position, then you may know where your pain stems from! However, you may be in need of an assessment if you are experiencing pain that started out slowly, or is chronic and does not seem to have any clear cause.
If you feel a chronic arm or leg pain, it’s likely that one of the joints in your spine is out of position. The spaces where your nerves exit your spine are then narrowed due to an improper alignment. Because your nerves have less space they can become irritated, and produce discomfort down their entire path!
As a result, injuries to the vertebrae in your spine can create pain anywhere along its length. The sciatic nerve runs from just below one hip all of the way down through both feet so it’s not uncommon for this area to be painful as well. Injuries that affect the nervous system are often accompanied by symptoms such as tingling or numbness in their extremities. These sensations point towards specific areas where damage may have occurred which then causes higher severity levels of pain associated with these conditions.
If you are suffering from chronic pain in your leg or arm, it is important to see a professional for an accurate diagnosis. The complexity of these joints makes determining the cause difficult; however, with proper evaluation by a Frisco TX chiropractor with the use of physical exams and imaging, any potential problems can be examined and addressed.
