When someone comes to his office complaining of leg or arm pain, Dr. Atzmon carefully examines several major components of their musculoskeletal and nervous system to identify the underlying cause. This may include:
These conditions can occur as a result of any number of events, including a car accident or sports injury. Other chronic conditions, including fibromyalgia and arthritis, may cause arm and leg pain, as well.
If your leg or arm pain is accompanied by numbness, tingling, and weakness, you may have an underlying nerve impingement. This means that somewhere in your spine, a nerve root exiting the spine that innervates a limb is getting pinched.
Often, a person's leg pain is caused by a syndrome known as sciatica. This is a condition caused by damage and inflammation of the sciatic nerve. If this nerve becomes impinged by a herniated disc or a bony abnormality, then it can lead to a variety of uncomfortable symptoms.
Sciatica symptoms vary wildly, and may include:
So many of the most common health problems we face are related to our spine. For his patients with leg or arm pain, Dr. Atzmon finds that a chiropractic adjustment can help restore their spine alignment, relieving any pressure on nerves that may be contributing to their symptoms, and prime their body and nervous system for healing.
Dr. Atzmon also provides soft tissue mobilization and modalities that can relieve pain, promote tissue healing, and reduce inflammation. He may recommend that you consult with his colleague, physical therapist Dr. Carla Loaiza, for additional functional rehabilitation and injury management.
