There are many different reasons why patients get arm pain explains Skokie chiropractor Dr. Cynthia Seaman. Old injuries from childhood, spinal stress or subluxations, arthritis, constant overuse or simply sleeping in an awkward position can cause arm pain.
The most common reason for arm pain is a pinched nerve in the neck or upper mid back (brachial plexus: network of nerves that supply the arm, forearm and hand). Pain usually travels down the arm on the top or bottom, a painful ache, tingling and/or numbness may also occur.
Arm pain can be often misinterpreted as shoulder pain/shoulder problems. It is your shoulder when you only feel pain exactly on the shoulder; any other painful spot is a completely different problem. After the age of 30, there doesn’t even have to be a specific accident or injury for your arm to hurt, it is simply a pinched nerve. Having an irritated or damaged disc can be the reason for the nerve to becoming impinged. If left untreated, eventually it can become difficult to raise your arm or even hold your morning cup of coffee.
