When it comes to chiropractic care, the spine isn’t the only part of the body that we can treat. In fact, with our knowledge of the musculoskeletal system, and its connection with the nervous system, we can go above and beyond the average doctor checkup. While they may provide medication that temporarily relieves the issue, it won’t be as effective in ensuring long term results.

Types Of Arm Injuries
There are many factors that appendages can be affected by. They are a collection of ligaments, tendons, muscles, bones, and nerves. All of which work collectively to perform actions and convey information about the outside world. If you any pain is occurring in the arm, it will most likely be a result of one of these issues. Such injuries consist of broken bones like your wrist (ulna and radial) as well as your upper arm (humorous). Additionally, there are 27 little bones in your hand that can potentially be damaged. You can also experience pain from ligament or tendon damage, this can come from overworking or contorting your arm to do unnatural activities for long periods of time. Just as the case for your muscles, a tear or strain can occur which will reduce mobility, strength, and cause immense pain. Other cases can stem from your nerves, as there is a large system of nerves which run down your shoulder all the way to your fingers.
Types of Leg Injuries
However, nerves are not only connected to the arms. In fact, the largest region of nerves in the body is located on the legs. They are known as the Sciatic nerves. Just like all other nerves, they coordinate the sensations and commands received from the brain and the outside world. Their ability to transfer information at super-fast speeds is what keeps our brain in control of our body, and aware of what’s going on around us. Injury to these nerves, whether in the arm or the legs can cause serious pain that is described as radiating around the arm. Other cases include tingling and even numbness. This comes as a separate issue that potentially arises from wear or disease. There are injuries similar to the arms that affect the bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, too. Tears in ligaments such as the ACL in your knee are some of the most common injuries to affect humans. It is incredible to think about how many different injuries we can incur, isn’t it?
Best Ways To Treat
Some of these injuries will certainly need surgery. Issues such as broken bones, torn ligaments, tendons and muscles, and even nerve damage can be serious enough to warrant an operation. Whether they have to realign the bone, reattach ligaments or perhaps build replacements — all extends beyond a chiropractor’s capabilities. However, after the fact, the best options for cases such as these is physical therapy. Once you finish with surgery, the injury will be on the road to recovery. The speed it heals will depend on your dedication. Disciplined rehabilitation can return people from injuries very quickly and can even make them stronger than before. Working with a chiropractor to regain flexibility, control, and strength in your arms and legs can do wonders. Through our programs, you will find healthy muscle growth, increased mobility, and a far more in-depth report on the status of your injuries. Even if you won’t be burdened by them for long, a good visit to our clinic is going to be such a relief. They can confirm that you’re on the right track, and if you’re not, put you back on it.
Preventative Measures You Can Take On Your Own
Of course, before or after visiting the chiropractor, there is a lot of responsibility on you to maintain your health. Eating proper nutrients and stretching before activities will go a long way to keeping you in good condition. If you are active a lot, or not, it is a great idea to keep a regiment of exercise purely to maintain form. When we dip in form or lose concentration, that can be when injuries occur. The best way to prevent an injury is to stay aware of what kind of injuries can happen. Following therapeutic techniques such as the ones our clinic offers can help protect you today!
