Numbness and tingling in the arms, hands, legs or feet can be an annoying problem that interferes with your ability to do work tasks or enjoy the recreational time. These symptoms are usually caused by pressure on nerves in the body. Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive, drug-free method of dealing with these issues. At Campion Chiropractic located in College Station, TX, we offer a range of techniques to relieve troublesome numbness and tingling symptoms
Numbness can be a disturbing symptom that generally occurs when a nerve in the body becomes compressed. The feeling is often accompanied by a tingling “pins and needles” sensation as the pressure on the nerve is released and the nerve signals resume normally. In some cases, the individual may also feel weakness in the muscles of the affected arm, hand or leg.
Nerve compression can be caused by a number of different factors. In some cases, maintaining a certain position for a long period of time can compress nerves, which then leads to numbness and tingling. You may have dysfunction or degeneration in the spinal discs that press on a nerve, creating these symptoms. Even peripheral nerves, located some distance away from the spinal column itself, can lead to these symptoms. Narrowing of the spinal canal can compress the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower spine, into the hip and down the backs of the legs. This nerve can become painful or lead to tingling sensations that can be very uncomfortable. Repetitive injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, can also lead to ongoing nerve problems.
Dr. Sehorn can do a thorough assessment of your general health and spinal condition to determine if nerves are being compressed that lead to these symptoms. Manual adjustment can be used to re-align the spinal structures, to prevent pressure on nerves that leads to numbness and tingling. Cuttin edge cold laser therapy helps relieve irriated nerves and reduces inflammation. Non-surgical spinal decompression treatment gently separates the vertebrae of the spine to allow structures to fall back into their normal positions. This can often help compressed nerves and related symptoms.
