Paresthesia: a feeling of “pins and needles” on your skin
Dysesthesia: an abnormal sensation that is painful, itchy, burning or restrictive

Causes of Numbness and Tingling

Spinal subluxations interfere with your nervous systems’ ability to normally communicate with the tissues of your body— resulting in pain, abnormal function or in many cases, numbness of the extremities. Some conditions such as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), slipped or herniated disc can also cause numbness and tingling.

Other causes of numbness and tingling:

  • Poor blood supply
  • Injured nerve in your neck
  • Herniated disk in your spine
  • Pressure on your nerves
  • Vitamin B1 deficiency
  • Enlarged blood vessels
  • Lesions on the spinal discs
  • Sciatica
  • Trigger points in the muscles

Symptoms of Numbness and Tingling

As we age, spinal compression is more common. Weakness and sensory changes in the extremities is a giveaway that spinal cord compression may be happening in your neck or lower back.

Symptoms of spinal compression:

  • Numbness, cramping, or weakness in the arms, hands, or legs
  • Loss of sensation in the feet
  • Pain and stiffness in the neck, back, or lower back
  • Headaches, migraines
  • Sinus
  • High blood pressure
  • Sciatica

Treatment

Regular Chiropractic Treatment

Our trained chiropractors will apply force to adjust misalignments in your spine to help relieve, reverse and resolve symptoms you are experiencing, ultimately helping you to resume your daily activities.

Decompression Therapy
Nonsurgical procedure intended to relieve pressure in the targeted segment of the spine by gently stretching it to create a negative pressure in it. This stretch will allow herniated/bulging discs to retract and promote blood flow back to the discs to improve recovery. Decompression Therapy has been known to be effective for conditions such as slipped discs, sciatica, disc degeneration and nerve compression.

Numbness and tingling in the arms and legs are abnormal sensations that result from disorders of a nerve or nerves. There are many different possibilities as to the cause of these symptoms. Constant numbness and tingling are late signs of subluxation, if not treated it can result in bone spurs and/or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS).
Chiropractic care specifically addresses the health of the central nervous system. Spinal misalignments cause nerve miscommunications. For the body to function as it should, misalignment should be corrected. To determine the cause of the tingling and numbness, detailed examination and evaluation are required. Depending on the nature or severity of the sensation, chiropractors will begin with examination which includes range of motion, orthopedic tests, muscles tests and neurological tests.
