Numbness & Tingling

We have all experienced that pins and needles sensation occasionally. It is normal to feel this if you have been sitting in one position for too long or if you have constricted the blood flow to part of your body. When this happens, the sensation will usually pass within a few minutes. If you are regularly experiencing numbness and tingling and are unsure of the cause, you may be dealing with a more serious problem.

What Causes Numbness and Tingling?

If numbness and tingling are affecting you regularly for no apparent reason, you must get down to the root of the problem. There can be many causes for this issue. Some of the more serious causes include:

  • Diabetes
  • MS
  • Seizure disorder
  • Stroke

If you have not been diagnosed with any of these conditions, then the numbness and tingling could be something a little less serious but still troublesome. Other conditions that can cause numbness and tingling include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Migraines
  • Pinched nerves

Numbness and tingling are most often caused by restricted blood flow to a part of your body. A pinched nerve will restrict blood flow and cause this issue. Pinched nerves can be present in any part of your body.

Chiropractic Care for Numbness and Tingling

Chiropractic care is focused on addressing issues of the central nervous system. Because pinched nerves are an issue of the central nervous system visiting the chiropractor for this issue just makes sense. Pinched nerves can often be addressed through spinal adjustment. Nerves become pinched when there is inflammation or misalignment of joints. Issues that result from misalignment include:

  • Migraines
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Pinched nerves

The nerve interference causes restricted blood flow and that results in numbness and tingling.
