Natural Treatment for Extremity Pain in Lexington
You might automatically think to call a chiropractor if you're having back pain, but what about the joints that permit motion in your extremities? Your knees, hips, ankles, wrists, and elbows can all suffer from painful, immobilizing issues which could also benefit chiropractic care. Here at Lynch Chiropractic Center in Lexington, KY, we can discover the source of your extremity pain and administer treatment to help you feel more like your normal, functional self.
Painful Problems Afflicting the Extremities
The extremities are considered to include all the components of your limbs, from the shoulders and hips all the way down to the fingers and toes. There are many articulated joints along these structures, and they're usually hard at work at some task or other. The joints of your wrists and fingers, for instance, may spend hours each day typing, playing an instrument, or assembling products. The joints of your legs and feet are constantly balancing you and your entire body weight through all kinds of motions. Over time, wear and tear or repetitive motion strain can cause some painful problems in these joints, from bursitis and muscle strain to osteoarthritis. Misalignment and/or tissue swelling can also lead to nerve impingement syndromes such as carpal tunnel syndrome (which affects the hands) and tarsal tunnel syndrome (which affects the feet).
In some cases, extremity pain doesn't even originate in the affected extremity. A pinched nerve root in the cervical or lumbar spine can send pain signals all the way through a limb. Cervical radiculopathy, for instance, can cause pain in a shoulder, elbow, wrist, or hand. Sciatica can cause pain in a hip, leg, knee, ankle, or foot.
Chiropractic Care Can Help You Overcome Pain
Our Lexington chiropractor, Dr. Kevin Lynch, can trace your extremity pain to its exact source and then apply non-surgical techniques to ease that pain. Our extremity adjusting techniques can safely and gently bring your body’s musculoskeletal structures back into line. These adjustments can relieve local nerve impingement and muscle strain. Spinal adjustments can relieve referred pain and other symptoms in the extremities. Exercises and other forms of therapy can complement these efforts as part of your holistic pain management plan.
