Arm Pain Doctors in West Bloomfield, MI

Arm Pain

Arm pain can not only interfere with movement and daily activities, but it can also create a general sense of ill-being.

Types of Arm Pain

Direct trauma to the arm can, of course, cause arm pain, but there are several other possible causes. The most common cause of arm pain, other than direct trauma, is irritation of nerves in the neck or upper back. Doctors call this radiating pain “neuropathy,” and it can be quite annoying and can even interfere with daily activities. Issues with shoulder or elbow joints and any other anatomical structure of the arm can also cause arm pain.

Chiropractic Treatments Available

Chiropractors frequently use manual adjustment of joints as a treatment for misalignment. This involves using a small instrument or their hands to apply a sudden but controlled force to the bones to move them back into place. Often, you’ll hear a “pop” or “crack” when the chiropractor performs this action.

Arm pain doctors can also treat arm pain using spinal traction, which consists of stretching the spine to alleviate pressure on nerves in the spine. By easing the pressure on the nerves of the upper spine, the neuropathy in your arm can also subside.

Why a Chiropractor Instead of My Medical Doctor?

Your medical doctor may prescribe drugs to mask the pain temporarily, but drugs do not solve the problem that is causing the pain. Surgery is another option that your medical doctor may provide, but this option is costly, comes with numerous risks, and usually involves a lengthy recovery period.

Drs. Adam and Amanda Apfelblat use natural chiropractic techniques to alleviate your pain. Chiropractic care is non-invasive and can correct the core problem instead of just treating symptoms. You also require minimal recovery time after a chiropractic procedure.
