Numbness & Tingling

Numbness and tingling are abnormal sensations that can occur anywhere in the body, but are usually found in the extremities (hands, fingers, feet, arms, or legs). There are many possible causes of numbness and tingling such as prolonged sitting, injuring a nerve, nerve compression, lack of blood supply to an area, (possibly due to blockages or interruption of nerve signals to affected muscles), shingles or herpes zoster infection or even seafood toxins. If numbness or tingling persists for more than 1 week, it can be a sign that the body is getting worse and needs immediate help.

Chiropractic care focuses on finding the underlying cause and restoring nerve function by correcting any spinal misalignment. Correcting these spinal misalignments help to change tissue and muscle tension and allow proper blood flow to be restored to the imbalanced area.
