Spine Conditions and Body Extremities
Back injuries can cause pain in multiple areas outside of the back. An injury to the spine can elicit pain that radiates to all areas of the body including the hips, legs, wrists, elbows, hands, knees, and ankles.
The SpineCare Team know that this pain can disrupt everyday life and functioning. This is why they work tirelessly to ensure that their patients can resume those activities they deem most important. Our team finds the root cause of the pain and learns why the pain may be radiating to a specific location. From this information, we are able to make recommendations about treatment types and solutions.
Symptoms of Extremity Pain
Pain can occur in almost all areas of the body following a spinal injury. The SpineCare Team utilizes their expertise to address these issues and recognize the symptoms of extremity pain and identify their underlying cause. Some of the most common symptoms include:
- Pareathesia – these symptoms are also known as “paresthetic,” and can best be described as a ‘pins and needles’ sensation that can occur in multiple areas of the body.
- Muscle Tension– musculoskeletal or mechanic pain, is the dull and aching pain that can be caused from the inflammation and aggravation of an area following injury.
- Pain Radiating around the Body– there may be multiple areas of the body that are effected and feel painful. Pain may radiate from the back and neck to other areas as well.
While the symptoms of extremity pain can interfere with daily life, there are diagnosis techniques that can pinpoint the root cause of the pain. During a consultation, our SpineCare team uses multiple evaluation tools to identify specific pain sources, and create a detailed treatment plan designed specifically for each patient.
