Tingling & Numbness Q & A
What are some of the causes of numbness and tingling?
Numbness and tingling are caused by nerve damage. Nerve damage is defined as the disruption of the function of the nerve and its task to relay electronic messages from the nervous system to muscles and connective tissue. The causes that disrupt nerves include pressure from bones, muscles, and tendons to traumatic injuries which may sever nerves. As you can see, the range of issues that may cause numbness and tingling of extremities varies greatly. For that reason, it’s important that symptoms, such as numbness and tingling, be accurately diagnosed so that treatment can be specific and comprehensive.
How can neck problems cause my fingers to feel numbness and tingling?
The cervical region of the spine, which is your neck, is a nerve center where nerves are distributed to your arms and into your back and chest. Any disruption in the alignment of vertebrae—the bones or muscles of the neck and spine, in the torso, and even in your arms—can cause pressure on any of those nerves that run down to your fingers. The result is numbness and tingling; sometimes the results include pain, a burning sensation, or even loss of feeling and strength in your fingers or arms. Because the spine is a comprehensive neurological tool, Gateway Chiropractic and Dr. Sas focus on accurately diagnosing causes of numbness and tingling, and then developing a comprehensive treatment plan that is specific to each patient.
Can chiropractic care resolve numbness and tingling?
The answer to that question is unique to each individual patient. Numbness and tingling are often correctable. The goal is always to discover the cause of the issue and then correct it so that nerves have an opportunity to resume their function. That process is not always immediate, and sometimes the feeling of numbness and tingling never goes away. The best place to start is with a diagnosis so that you can make an informed decision about how to proceed with your care.
Words From Happy Gateway Chiropractic Patients
I have seen many chiropractors since college in effort to fix a few different issues, and Dr Sas is the ONLY one who sat down and created a full treatment plan AND TOLD ME ABOUT IT. Personally, I like to know what’s going on when a Dr is treating me, and he has always been very transparent in my care plan. After 6 years I can finally cross my legs sitting down again, and it keeps getting better.
I had A LOT of irrational anxiety about getting chiropractic work done. But Dr. Sas was very down-to-earth and didn’t feed me any b.s. He understood my anxiety, but made sure that I understood he was in this with me and for me. After 4 months, he is now one of my most favorite humans and I look forward to our visits. Oh, and I guess it’s probably important to note that his treatments are actually helping me. So, there’s that.
Dr Sas is amazing!! I went from having back pain daily to being symptom free after about a month in his care. I have seen other chiropractors before and I can’t say enough about how great Dr Sas is compared to the competition. His office staff is incredibly nice and knows everyone by name. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone and everyone to go see Dr Sas at Gateway Chiropractic!
