Chiropractic Care & Numbness
Do you feel frequent numbness and tingling sensations in your arm, hand, fingers, legs, feet, back or neck? Usually you will feel numbness in your legs if you sit on them for too long. But the numbness and tingling we’re referring to is a bit more complex than that. Something as bizarre as it being an after-effect of radiation therapy can be the answer. The numbness and tingling can be more persistent and bothersome, that you are considering looking for real medical help.
Chiropractic care can be the solution for you. It probably won’t make sense why, but it is important to understand that some of the causes for the numbness and sensations could be a result of things such as diabetes, seizures, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, stroke, and multiple sclerosis.
There is also the possibility of a nerve injury, a herniated disk, enlarged blood vessels, tumors, shingles, or cholesterol. There are also issues related to vitamin deficiency and the use of certain medications. The reality is that numbness and tingling can be caused by many things and it usually has to do with some sort of imbalance.
Chiropractic care’s main focus is to restore balance in the body, it doesn’t always necessarily have to do with someone’s back. With chiropractic care, the source of the numbness and tingling can be determined and possibly treated depending on what the situation is. What a chiropractor will do is try to restore balance and proper function to your nerves with certain chiropractic techniques, along with physical therapy, which will help reduce inflammation.
If you are considering drugs or injections to help solve your numbness and tingling, then it is important that you first visit a chiropractor, because chiropractic care will be the safest solution due the fact that it is drug and surgery-free.
