Dr. Bradley Eyford DC and Dr. Dena Marie Terranova, leading chiropractors in Tacoma, WA

Arm and Leg Pain Specialist

Leg and arm pain are health problems that cause mobility issues. It may be due to benign muscle fatigue or frozen shoulder, or severe conditions like nerve compression.

Our Tacoma Chiropractic care team helps treat both types of pain.

The exact location of the pain depends on the cause. Nerve pain tends to be generalized, while pain due to arthritis, bursitis, or other inflammatory conditions is more localized.

Chiropractors help alleviate the symptoms and conditions that cause arm and leg pain.

What Are The Symptoms Of Arm & Leg Pain?

Chiropractors have first to decide whether the pain is primary or secondary.

Primary pain usually starts from the leg or arm and then radiates to the other body parts. Secondary pain arises from somewhere else in the body and then reaches the arms or legs. The accompanying symptoms can be:

  • Weakness
  • Muscle fatigue
  • Muscle cramping
  • Difficulty in movement
  • Abnormal sensations like tingling and electrical shock-like feelings
  • Loss of sensation
  • Bladder and bowel leakage (with leg pain)

  • Muscle cramps
  • Muscle strain or fatigue
  • Injury to joint, tendon, ligament, or muscle

The secondary issues causing leg pain are:

  • Subluxations (spinal bone misalignments)
  • Disc problems and more
  • Dehydration
  • Side effects of medications
