Performing daily activities relies on consistently using your shoulder and hip joints. However, these joints can sustain injuries because of various causes. For instance, aching muscles, bones, or nerves can hurt your shoulders or hips. Sometimes, you may experience pain in your extremities.
Extremity pain slowly starts in your arm, leg, or foot and can affect your quality of life since you won’t be able to move freely. Typically, extremity issues are linked with dysfunction of the neck and back. For example, numbness in the hands may result from tightness in the shoulders or joint fixation in the neck.
Likewise, foot pain conditions like plantar fasciitis (the inflammation of a thick band of tissue on the bottom of the foot connecting the heel bone to the toes) or foot misalignment can lead to chronic pain in your back, knees, and hips. These issues are common among runners and those with occupations that keep them on their feet, such as factory workers and teachers.
Chronic arm, leg, or foot pain can affect your mood and relationships and your body’s ability to function properly. Managing your pain will help you improve your overall health so you can keep doing what you love.
