As with pain in other areas of the body, arm ache is commonly cause by a pinched or aggravated nerve in the neck. Examples of complaints in the arm that can be treated using chiropractic methods include: Frozen Shoulder, Tennis Elbow and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Frozen shoulder is a condition that can be significantly helped by chiropractic. Your chiropractor will tackle the loss of movement in the shoulder joint, using acupuncture. Individuals who suffer commonly from frozen shoulder are those that are recovering from heart attacks, dislocation or prolonged immobilisation. Sufferers should contact the clinic, for advice on the best course of action.
Tennis elbow is a form of tendonitis suffered in the tendons of the hands, which is then referred to the elbow. The individual does not need to be a tennis fanatic to develop the condition; it is more commonly associated with repetitive strains on the elbow joint.
Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat tennis elbow – manipulations and adjustments of the area of the spine that control the nerve supply to the tendons of the hands result in a quick and effective pain relief solution.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a painful condition that restricts movement and causes numbness in the hands and fingers. It is caused by a compression in the nerves of the carpal tunnel, which is the tunnel housing the nerves of the hand and wrist.
Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include lack of feeling or mobility in the fingers, tingling and shooting pains. It is often considered to be a repetitive strain injury, commonly but not restricted to the elderly generation.
CTS is generally treated by chiropractors, and can be remedied through manipulation of the spine, wrist and elbow.
