Arm/Leg Pain

Arm/leg pain can be due to a variety of different problems including nerve pain from disc injuries in the cervical or lumbar region, nerve injuries in the extremity itself, joint related problems including shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, and ankle, as well as other musculoskeletal injuries. Patients may develop pain following surgery with a small number of patients developing a neuropathic pain condition called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (please see sympathetic pain). As with all painful conditions it is important to determine the precise cause of symptoms in order to design appropriate therapy.
