While the pain may manifest itself in the arm or leg, it often originates in the spine. All of the innervation in the body’s extremities–your arms and legs–comes from the nerves that exit the cervical spine. When people irritate a nerve in the neck or low back, it often sends a signal down to the hand or leg.
It continues to cause pain in the arms and legs until freed from its irritation. Then the nerve heals, and the arm and leg pain go away. Nerves in the neck can be compressed by bones, discs, or muscles. Same thing in the low back. Once we determine exactly what is creating the problem, through exam and investigation, we can then effectively treat the root cause of the pain. So by adjusting the spine, and doing therapies to the neck or back area, we are able to gain a 90+% resolution in most arm and leg pain cases.
