Dealing with Radiating Arm and Leg Pain: A Chiropractic Approach

What is Radiating Arm and Leg Pain?

Radiating arm and leg pain, often signifying a serious condition, involves the compression or pinching of nerves. It can be due to several sources including disc herniation, arthritis-induced nerve compression, scar tissue, muscle spasm or inflammation along the nerve path.

Recognizing Radiating Arm and Leg Pain

Typically presenting as a sharp, shooting sensation along the arm or leg, this pain often follows the nerve's pathway.

Recognizing these patterns can assist clinicians in pinpointing the problem's root cause.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help?

At Total Health Chiropractic Singapore, our team of expert chiropractors performs thorough consultations and assessments. This includes a comprehensive case history, necessary orthopedic and neurological exams, and potentially organizing X-rays to discern any adverse spinal changes.

After collecting vital information, our chiropractors will recommend personalized chiropractic care to provide the best care possible.

The Value of Early Intervention

Early intervention greatly increases the chances of resolving symptoms. It is unnecessary to suffer from radiating arm and leg pain when chiropractic care can offer relief.

Scientific Support for Chiropractic Care

Research suggests that chiropractic care, specifically spinal manipulative therapy, may offer more effective relief than nerve root injections for chronic neck pain caused by a cervical disc herniation (Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, March 2016).

These findings underline the potential of chiropractic care in dealing with radiating arm and leg pain.

Radiating Arm and Leg Pain


“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; the pain always came back. 


It took about 6 sessions with Tim before I saw real improvement, and since then I seem to just get better and better. I am incredibly 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.”
