If you’re experiencing arm pain, wrist pain, or shoulder pain, you know how debilitating it can be. These types of pain can make it challenging to perform even the simplest of tasks and negatively impact your quality of life. However, there may be a solution that you haven’t considered yet – Chiropractic BioPhysics®. At CorePosture Chiropractic, we offer this unique approach to chiropractic care to treat arm, wrist, and shoulder pain.
Arm pain, wrist pain, and shoulder pain often go hand in hand, and can indicate issues with your musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic BioPhysics® is a technique that examines the spine and looks for any subluxations (misalignments) that could be causing pain or stress on the surrounding muscles and nerves. Addressing these subluxations can help alleviate shoulder pain, arm pain, and wrist pain, as well as any other issues caused by nerve interference.
The musculoskeletal system is a complex network of bones, muscles, tendons, and nerves that provides your body with support, stability, and movement. If any component within this system becomes damaged or misaligned, it can result in pain or discomfort in various parts of the body, including the arms. For instance, a misalignment in the spine (subluxation) can put undue pressure on the nerves that extend from the spinal cord to the arms, causing pain, numbness, or tingling. Thus, by addressing the root cause of the misalignment through Chiropractic BioPhysics®, we can alleviate arm pain and restore normal function to the affected areas.
Arms, wrists, and shoulders can be injured in a variety of ways, often due to repetitive movements, overuse, or sudden trauma. This could happen in numerous scenarios such as sports activities, carrying heavy objects, or even sitting at a desk typing for prolonged periods. These types of repetitive or strenuous activities can result in conditions like tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or rotator cuff injuries, leading to debilitating pain in the arm, wrist, or shoulder.
Pain in these areas is often a result of inflammation, nerve compression, or structural damage to the muscles, bones, or tendons. For instance, carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve in the wrist, leading to pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm. Similarly, a rotator cuff injury—caused by damage to the group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint—can result in a dull ache in the shoulder, which often worsens when you try to sleep on the injured side.
In general, these injuries and the associated pain can significantly affect your daily activities. You may experience discomfort when lifting objects, difficulty in moving your arm, or a sensation of weakness. Moreover, the pain might not be limited to the localized injury area, and could radiate to surrounding areas, further complicating the diagnosis and treatment process.
Treating the musculoskeletal system is pivotal in managing arm pain, as it targets the underlying issues that cause discomfort rather than merely addressing the symptoms. By focusing on the musculoskeletal system, chiropractors can identify and correct subluxations in the spine, relieving the pressure exerted on the nerves that lead to the arms. This approach not only alleviates pain, but it also restores the normal function and mobility of the arm. Furthermore, a healthy musculoskeletal system ensures proper blood flow and nerve conduction, enhancing the body’s innate healing capabilities. Therefore, through the treatment of the musculoskeletal system, patients may find long-term relief from arm pain, improving their overall quality of life.
Wrist pain is intricately connected to the musculoskeletal system. This system includes not only the wrist’s bones and joints, but also the muscles, tendons, and nerves that allow the wrist to move and function properly. The intricate network of nerves that run from our spinal cord, through our arm, and into our wrist can become affected by the health of our spine. For instance, a misalignment in the spine can exert undue pressure on these nerves, leading to pain or discomfort in the wrist. Such a misalignment, or subluxation, can also affect the blood flow and nerve signals to the wrist, resulting in conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome or tendonitis. Therefore, Chiropractic BioPhysics® addresses these misalignments in the spine to alleviate wrist pain and maintain the health of the musculoskeletal system.
Shoulder pain is directly related to the musculoskeletal system. This system includes the bones, tendons, muscles, and nerves that make up the shoulder joint. Any damage or misalignment within this system can lead to discomfort or pain in the shoulder. For example, a misalignment in the spine can put unnecessary strain on the nerves that extend from the spinal cord to the shoulder, causing pain, stiffness or restricted movement. Such a misalignment might also affect blood flow and nerve signals to the shoulder, leading to conditions like frozen shoulder or rotator cuff injury. Therefore, through Chiropractic BioPhysics®, the alignment of the spine and associated pain in the shoulder can be addressed, resulting in relief and restored functionality.
