Numbness and Tingling
Numbness and Tingling: Achieve Relief with Chiropractic Care
Experiencing numbness and tingling in your hands, arms, back, neck, face, legs, feet, or toes can be unsettling and disruptive to your daily life.
These sensations might point to a more serious underlying condition involving the compression or pinching of spinal nerves.
This compression can lead to a loss of sensory function, causing affected body areas to feel unusually heavy, numb, or partially "dead".
In some cases, these symptoms might hint at life-threatening conditions, such as a heart attack, stroke, or poisoning. Hence, it's critically important to address recurring numbness and tingling with the right intervention.
When Should You Seek Help?
If your numbness and tingling sensation feels like it "radiates" from your neck, mid-back, or low back, conservative chiropractic care could potentially offer the solution you need.
Although often painless, these symptoms shouldn't be ignored. They can progressively be associated with a weakening of muscle control, leading to balance issues, poor coordination, and an increased risk of falls. Thus, seeking appropriate care as soon as possible is advised.

“I was getting really worried about the numbness coming down my arm, especially due to the fact that I spend many hours at the computer. I am now so glad that I didn't leave going to see Total Health Chiropractic any longer as I now understand that my poor posture was really damaging my spine. After only a few chiropractic visits, my numbness had gone and I know now how to counteract my many working hours at the computer with various exercises. Thank you.”
