Shooting Pain Down The Arm | Healthworks Chiropractic | Pain Down The Arm

Today Healthworks chiropractic  I want to talk to you about the shooting pain down the arm and some of the causes for shooting down the arm. You know you can have a lot of impingement throughout the world if the bone and soft tissue isn’t in the proper alignment and you know some of this can stem from the upper portion of your neck or your cervical portion of your spine. Basically there’s seven vertebrae and some lower nerve roots that come out of there. And you know if you’re getting referred pain from the shoulder it could be potentially coming from your neck. So there’s you know there’s seven vertebrae in the in the cervical spine and those those control all the functions to your brain are your top vertebrae your atlas if you’re having Shooting Pain Down The Arm You know it controls that rotation movement all the muscles that kind of intertwine through there. And if there’s some type of dysfunction through that area or you know inflammation from you know an injury. We see a lot of at Healthworks chiropractor get a car accident or a whiplash injury and it kind of jars the head for it that snaps back. Not only is there traumatic stress on the brain with those types of things and sometimes swelling of the brain and concussions you know can occur with whiplash other injuries such as that. But you know the main thing is that these nerve root can become damaged and when they become damaged that’s when you’re going to get the shooting pain down the arm.

And we try to minimize that as best as we can at Healthworks chiropractic and getting Shooting Pain Down The Arm to get those areas properly align and get your body moving and functioning better and get the pressure off that nerve root. One of the things we’d like to do for people that are having shooting pain down the arm is our spinal decompression machine. And this is spinal decompression machine whether it be a degenerative change that’s putting the stress on that nerve causing the shooting pain down in the arm or some type of disc issue where there’s a bit of a herniation or prolapse dis where that is for shooting out and pressing on a nerve then it’s our it’s our job to get that pressure off of that area and spinal decompression can certainly help with that. You know there’s there’s factors in settings as a whole decompression table here. Healthworks chiropractic and you know we we like to make sure that you know this this decompression setting is is optimal for what you have going on. Now if you’re having referred pain from the shoulder you know like we are talking about the different levels and different nerve roots some of which you know you can you can determine by where it’s leading down to if it’s slowing down the back of the arm or the front portion of the arm. You know that there’s different areas of the the cervical spine that could be potentially coming out of. And at Healthworks Chiropractic in Franklin in Murfreesboro Tennessee we can we can kind of determine this with a very thorough evaluation and an X-ray to see how these areas are kind of positioned within your body in the upper portion of your spine or your cervical spine.

And you know that for most most structures around you know the shoulder derive from the C5 segment and basically there’s one important exception the AC joint there Chromeo curricular joint kind of the where the shoulder meets the clavicle that general area that controls some of that movement and which is one of the the C4 origins an AC joint problems and problems within this you can experience pain that is felt at the tips of the shoulders kind of on that bump area with with the little bit of separation sometimes especially when the lesions lie on the inferior portion of the AC ligament. And the pain can spread to the upper arm. And if there’s lesions of the other portion of the shoulder you know the pain is usually not felt at the tip of the shoulder but starts essentially in the areas kind of superior to the shoulder. And when we get that feeling it can lead referred pain and some other things down the down the arm. And you know the pain it’s usually not felt at the tip of the shoulder like what we were saying but starts in the deltoid region and it may spread further down the C5 kind of nerve root area. So basically that C5 you’re very kind of the top portion of your neck there. Can definitely lead down you know the front portion here deltoid Shooting Pain Down The Arm and kind of downward on there. And you know the severity of the lesions can determine how far down the arm pain is referred in a more severe lesion will spread the pain further down.
