Do you have radiating arm and leg pain?
Pain in the hands, arms, legs, feet, or toes can be an indication of a severe condition that involves the pinching or compression of nerves. Please take radiating arm and leg pain seriously.
Radiating arm and leg pain can come from several origins and is often related to disc herniation, compression of nerves by arthritis, scar tissue, muscle spasm or inflammation along the course of the nerve.
Generally, this pain is a sharp shooting, unpleasant sensation along the arm or the leg. This pain often follows the path of the nerve. These patterns of radiating nerve pain can lead astute clinicians to identify the cause of the problem.

What studies show us about radiating arm and leg pain
“Spinal manipulative therapy may be a better treatment option than nerve root injections. Primarily for patients experiencing chronic neck pain caused by a cervical disk herniation. In this study, researchers followed the progress of 104 MRI-confirmed cervical disk herniation patients who received either spinal manipulation or nerve root injections and found those treated by a chiropractor were significantly more likely to report improvement after three months.”

I can only describe the pain I was getting down the back and side of my legs as unbearable. I was told that I was facing surgery if things deteriorated further. I had tried everything; massage, pilates, physiotherapy, and only received short term relief; always the pain came back. It took about 6 treatments with Dr Tim before I saw real improvement and since then I seem to just get better and better.
I am extremely grateful for their professional and understandable approach. I feel that I am now on a journey to a higher level of overall health as my entire spine works better.
