Many factors can cause pain in your arms and legs. The most common causes are over use, trauma, and circulation problems. Pain from exercise is usually muscular and subsides within one to three days. Ice, heat, massage, or stretching can be helpful in relieving some of the pain. If your pain persists, call your chiropractor to see if an adjustment is needed.
The nerves in your arms originate in your neck, while nerves in your legs come from the lower back. If your spine shifts due to trauma or muscle imbalance, the nerves may become irritated and can cause pain and weakness. Your chiropractor will isolate the cause and discuss options with you to correct the problem.
