After staying in one position for a long time, you may experience a pins and needles sensation when a foot or hand “falls asleep”. While feeling typically returns within minutes, some people are regularly affected by these symptoms for no clear reason.

If you suffer from recurring numbness and tingling, a chiropractor may be able to identify the cause.

Causes of Numbness & Tingling

Numbness or tingling is caused by the impingement of a sensory nerve, which restricts blood flow and disrupts its normal functionality. If left untreated, nerve interference could lead to permanent loss of feeling.

Major organ systems in the human body are controlled by nerves exiting the spine. While you may experience numbness in other areas of the body, the most common source of nerve irritation is the spine. For instance, radiating hip or leg pain is typically caused by a compressed sciatic nerve in your lumbar spine, rather than a lower body injury.

A patient experiencing arm or wrist numbness may be misdiagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. This condition occurs when a major nerve in the hand is compressed, causing pain up the arm. A chiropractor’s evaluation may find the source of numbness is in fact located in the neck or spine, which eliminates the need for unnecessary carpal tunnel surgery.

Chiropractic for Nerve Irritation

Chiropractic care is a natural and effective way to correct spinal misalignments, without drugs, steroids or surgery. Gentle chiropractic adjustments can remove nerve interference, relieve pressure and restore communication between your brain and body, via the central nervous system.

Throughout treatment, your doctor may recommend icing the affected area or wearing a stabilizing brace.
 
Working with a chiropractor can help restore nerve function and blood flow to maintain feeling in your extremities. To get started, schedule an appointment today!

"I would highly recommend this office for any chiropractic needs. The staff are wonderful (quick responses, friendly, and accommodating) and I have been seeing Dr. Wade for about 4-5 months now and I have received great care. Dr. Wade takes the time to answer questions, explain what's going on with your body and work through plans to help you feel better. I have had wonderful results since coming to this practice! Definitely deserving of the 5 stars!!!!"

"I'm a very active individual and lower back pain was getting in the way of activities I love. While my back is still a work in progress, the time spent with Dr. D has been well worth it. I just ran 2 marathons in 2 weeks and these sessions helped me run these races with no back pain."

"They are not only extremely professional and helpful but genuinely care about your well being! In addition, the group is very supportive of the community. I love that they partnered with We Are the Children to donate thousands of dollars worth of toys.

Dr. Wade helped with some long term lower back pain that I thought I would have to live with, however after going through the treatment process, I'm happy to say i'm no longer in any pain. I would highly recommend the office to anyone."

"I started adjustments for neck, back, and tailbone pain and at the end of the 10 weeks the pain was completely gone. Dr. Wade is kind, funny, and very good at what he does. He brings positive energy into the office every single day and is in a good mood 100% of the time. During each session, he gave me tips on faster healing and lifestyle changes I could make to help in the future."

"I started my chiropractic journey a few weeks before having my 3rd baby. They were amazing, patient and gentle during the pregnancy. They weren't pushy when I took my time, post pregnancy, to come back. They were amazing with my schedule and did everything to work with me. I felt so comfortable with them that I brought my new born baby and my 3 year old in to get adjusted! My daughter talked so much about how much she loved her adjustment and can't wait to go back again!"
