Numbness and Tingling
Do you suffer from numbness or tingling in your back or extremities? Numbness and tingling can be caused by a variety of factors and can range from a mild nuisance to a major disruption of your daily activities. The good news is that most cases of numbness or tingling are easily treatable through chiropractic therapy!
Causes of Numbness and tingling
Most cases of numbness and tingling occur in the hands, feet, arms or legs and can result from a number of causes.
- Incorrect posture can result in the spine being contorted into a position that puts excess pressure on your nerves, which causes them to send extra signals to the brain, resulting in a numbing or tingling sensation.
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can cause numbness or tingling in the hands and wrists. The numbness can become so severe that it almost feels painful to some patients.
- A Spinal Injury will inflame and pinch the nerves, and if there is also damage to the surrounding soft tissues, tendons and ligaments, numbness or tingling can be a common symptom.
- A Herniated Disc can cause numbness or tingling as the protruding disc presses up against spinal nerves. Numbness and tingling are common symptoms of a bulging disc, as well.
Other factors that can cause or contribute to numbness or tingling are smoking, infection, medication, B12 deficiency, and multiple sclerosis, just to name a few.
