What can be the cause?
Arm pain is usually felt in either the upper arm, elbow, forearm, wrist or hand and is often caused by repetitive strain injuries such as weight lifting, sports, typing or trips/falls or simply from sleeping awkwardly. Pain could also be referred from a distant area such as neck or shoulder.
What do you feel?
Symptoms can vary from a dull ache, numbness, pins and needles/tingling, heaviness, sharp shooting pain and weakness. If left untreated, conditions such as tennis elbow, golfers elbow or impingement can occur in the elbow restricting simple things like lifting the kettle, opening doors, driving, weight lifting.
What to do?
If you are suffering from arm pain, it is worth having a consult with us to establish it’s cause. If your pain is beyond the scope of Chiropractic or Osteopathy, you will be referred and advised accordingly for the appropriate therapy/investigations.
If it is within our scope, we can work with you to help restore your body to its natural mechanics and relieve muscle tightness enabling the body to self-heal and regulate; as well as discuss the best way to prevent re-occurrence.
What would it be like to be pain free, functioning and enjoying ‘normal’ again?
