It just so happens that the nerves in your neck are specifically focused on providing strength and sensation to your head and arms. It's actually very common for arm pain to be traced back to a functional issue in the neck.
When a bone in your neck irritates or presses on a nerve, it can result in arm pain. If you've told family or friends about your neck pain and they immediately started in on that "referred pain" conversation, this is what they meant.
The good news? Pain resulting from a pinched nerve very rarely requires surgery. And if you've been living with anything from numbness and tingling to sharp and sudden aches and pains in either of your arms, we've got you covered.
Get this. Pinched nerves often don't cause noticeable symptoms in their early stages. Many individuals experience no discomfort at first, which is why regular chiropractic check-ups to assess your spine's health are essential.
We've said it once, and we'll say it again - motion heals! Gentle, specific adjustments are just one of the non-invasive tools we use to help reduce any irritation and inflammation in your neck so your body has time to heal.
So, whether you've been living with nagging pains in your neck, arms, or anywhere throughout your body - or it's been some time since your last check up - know that we're here to help get and keep you out of pain, naturally.
Until next week, make time for your self-care. Be sure to have your next visit scheduled, and, if you like what you read, we hope you'll forward to a friend.
