Shooting Arm Pain

Radicular arm pain, also known as cervical radiculopathy, is a common condition that can cause significant discomfort and limited functioning in patients. Chiropractic treatment has been shown to be an effective conservative management option for this condition. A study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that a combination of spinal manipulation and mobilization provided a significant reduction in pain and improvement in function in patients with radicular arm pain. The study also reported that chiropractic treatment was more effective in treating this condition compared to physical therapy and medication.
Another study published in the journal Spine examined the long-term effects of chiropractic treatment for cervical radiculopathy. The study found that patients who received chiropractic care experienced sustained pain relief and functional improvement at a 12-month follow-up. The researchers concluded that chiropractic treatment should be considered as a first-line conservative approach for patients with radicular arm pain.
Overall, these studies provide scientific evidence that chiropractic treatment is a beneficial approach for managing radicular arm pain. Spinal manipulation and mobilization techniques have been shown to provide significant pain relief and functional improvement in patients with this condition. Chiropractic care can be a useful conservative treatment option that should be considered for individuals experiencing radicular arm pain.
