Dr. Marco A. Lopez, DC's Expert Contributions
Not likely. The femoral nerve does not motor branches below the knee. A 'pinched' L5 or S1 nerve root can cause foto drop but it would have to be pretty severe. READ MORE
A good chiropractor can help gte your pain under control and possibly give you strategies for diminishing/managing flare ups READ MORE
You would need a dedicated consult and exam to understand what the source and contributing factors for your pain. READ MORE
It depends what is causing the cause pain. If its a simple strain or there is glenohumeral dysfunction than yes. Even it there is a mild impingement, a chiropractor that practice myofasical release can help. READ MORE
That is a very broad question. I wouldn't see a chiropractor for metabolic conditions, fractures, or infections. We are good for neuromusculoskeletal of the spine and extremities. READ MORE
If your neck pain stems from joint dysfunction, muscle spasm or disc herniations, then yes. READ MORE
Sure. Why not?! Its your body you can can decide what you need. Remember, it depends what you're going for. If you have had back pain for years,you will likely need a care plan until your sysmptoms subside. We are not in the miracle business. That said, you dont have to see a chiropractor three times a week to infinity and beyond. Use your judgement. READ MORE
If the pain is very intense, it may. If your mid back is "out of alingment" it may cause sharp pain with inhlalation that then makes you feel short of breath. Sometimes bad muscle spasms can also make you feel short of breath. READ MORE
It won't hurt, but will probably feels good in the moment, but will not likely provide lasting benefit. READ MORE
That is a safe bet. Most neck pain is musculoskeletal and responds well to chiropractic treatment. READ MORE
That's a loaded question that should be directed to the chiropractor who evaluated you and is currently treating you because he understands your case. If you feel unsure, then you should get a second opinion in the form of a new evaluation. READ MORE
It's never too late to make positive changes. READ MORE
Sometimes it gets better on its own and life is good. If you are weekend warrior or simply play hard than you should get it checked out as it may worsen, lead to tears and/or cause other problems along the kinetic chain READ MORE
This is difficult to answer because there is missing context relative to your situation. In general, symptoms from a pinched nerve will heal as does almost any other injury. This can take 3-5months but this is range. Symptoms sometimes linger or persist beyond this range when healing is incomplete. What will happen depends on the extent of the injury. That is, how much it is affecting the nerve, your function and your quality of life. Life can go back to normal or worse case scenario is that you can have a disabling injury. Without a proper exam and diagnostic tests, a clear prognosis is not possible. READ MORE
It depends. If it's purely a shoulder injury than the ability to raise or move your arm measures seriousness. What aggravates or brings on the pain can provide clues as to what is causing the pain. A good history and physical exam will help. READ MORE
Depends on how bad the "pull" is. A few days for minor, days to weeks for mild to moderate, a month or more for something more severe. Evaluation and treatment helps speed this up READ MORE
Depending on the severity, yes. For most mild to moderate cases, soft tissue techniques work well. READ MORE
As a general rule, it's more important that you sleep well than how you sleep. That said, if you are waking up with shoulder pain from sleeping on your side, then maybe you have a shoulder injury that should be looked at. READ MORE
That depends on the type of herniation you have. Extrusions and sequestrations tend to resorb more than broad-based, subligamentous, protrusion type herniations. With this latter type, they may not resorb at all. But that doesnt matter provided that your symptoms improve. While the herniation may remain, the pain and inflammation associated with the insult that is the cause of symptoms does resolve and improve. READ MORE
If by arms you mean joint or muscle injuries, some do. You would have to ask the chiropractor. I evaluate and treat some injuries. Others requiring more extensive treatment are referred to physical therapy. READ MORE
