Are you experiencing Numbness and/or Tingling?
Numbness and tingling in the hands, arms, back, neck, face, legs, feet or toes can be an indication of a serious condition that involves the pinching or compression of the sensory portion of spinal nerves.
This compression of the nerves can lead to a loss of that sensory function which can make the area of the body supplied by that nerve feel heavy or numb with a partial feeling of “deadness”.
These symptoms can, at times, indicate something extremely serious and even life threatening, such as heart attack, stroke or poisoning to name a few.
It is vitally important that if you are suffering from recurrent numbness and tingling that you seek the correct intervention. If it feels as if it “radiates” from certain areas such as the neck, mid back or low back, then conservative chiropractic therapies will usually provide a solution.
Numbness and tingling, whilst often without pain, should not be left untreated. It can gradually become associated with weakness and loss of muscle control leading to poor balance, poor coordination, and can increase the likelihood of falls. We therefore encourage you to seek the right care at your earliest opportunity.
At Total Health Chiropractic, during an initial full consultation which includes a thorough case history and any necessary orthopedic and neurological exams, we first determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for the conservative spinal care we offer.
If necessary we will organize X-Rays in order that we can actually see any adverse changes that are happening to your spine. When we are happy that we have all the necessary information to give you the very best care, will we then outline our recommended treatment protocol. Obviously the earlier the intervention, the greater the likelihood of total resolution of symptoms.
Call today to schedule an appointment or if you require more information. If you need more reassurance or wish to discuss your condition you may request a free consult with the doctor.
“I was getting extremely 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 visits, my numbness had gone and I know now how to counteract my many working hours at the computer with various exercises. Thank you. -P Ho
