Numbness & Tingling


 

Numbness

Injuries, particularly those involving spinal misalignments, can result in unnecessary pressure being exerted on the spinal nerves. This can lead to serious neurological symptoms including numbness, tingling, burning or shooting pain into the extremity (arm and/or leg), muscle weakness and possible atrophy, altered reflexes, etc. If you or anyone you know complains of these types of symptoms then you are way overdue for a spinal evaluation by a chiropractor. The earlier you notice the problem and seek treatment for it the better. Although we help people that already have neurological symptoms, we educate our patients about their spine, the nervous system, how the body and healing works, and why they should be taking a proactive stance in taking care of the human frame. We only have one spine to support us, protect our nervous system, and allow us to move as freely as we do. For this reason it is imperative not to neglect the spine.
