Atherosclerosis, nerve compression, and spinal cord injury can cause both pain and tingling in the arms and legs. Apart from that, lifting heavy loads and pushing the muscles too much during sports and exercise are among the main causes of arm and leg pain.
While it can be helpful to avoid excessive weightlifting and push-ups, it is important to recognize a few specific causes of arm and leg pain. Arm and leg injuries can be seen when you carry out the usual activities which you have been carrying out for a long time.
Here are the top 10 causes of arm and leg pain
Weak joints are the result of the lack of mobility in the joints.
Lack of mobility
If these joints are weak, they may not allow adequate movement.
Lack of muscle mass
This is when your muscles become too small due to aging. If you have lost some muscle mass due to muscle damage and/or overuse, you may experience muscle pain in the shoulders and chest due to weakness of your muscles.
Weak back muscles
If the muscles that hold your back are weak, the force of your back is transmitted through the shoulder and is then felt through the arms and legs. If this is the case, it may cause numbness and/or pain.
If you have suffered from low back pain or an injury to the back muscles or you have been sleeping in your bed or bedding for a long time, consider visiting a physical therapist for a check-up.
Low back injuries
Low back pain can cause you pain when you stand or walk on one leg. Pain may also cause pain during lifting weights and movements in the arms and legs.
The muscle fibers of your back muscles are weak and may be damaged due to back injury caused by lower back pain or surgery.
Sometimes you may have low back pain and wear heavy or athletic shoes, even though the shoes do not restrict the movement of your lower back muscles. Some people may have trouble with the movements of the muscles in their feet when they stand or move.
Your feet can suffer from various injuries such as arthritis, degeneration of the bones of your feet, wear and tear, and weak and/or injured nerves.
Your body does not have the strength to stretch it’s muscles when you are trying to relax them.
This may cause your shoulders or your legs to become very tight.
Pain from injury or illness

If you suffer from pain in your arms or legs, it is important to visit a physical therapist for medical examinations.
An injury or infection
It’s very important to inform the doctor about all your physical and medical conditions so that they can help you when there is an injury or illness. When you have trouble walking, you should go to the doctor as well.
A previous injury
If you have experienced injuries or conditions that affected your back or neck in the past, you may be at an increased risk of getting symptoms of injuries or illness.
Common causes of injury that cause leg or arm pain
When you do exercise or run, you are constantly pushing out your muscle mass. This causes it to become more resistant to the movement of the muscles.
There are many causes of muscle damage and it may be caused by a poor diet.
Excessive lifting may cause strain and injury. For example, if you do push-ups and presses for hours on end, your body may suffer from increased strain. If you feel an extreme strain in the muscles, you should see a physical therapist.
