Numbness And Tingling
Numbness in the limbs can be very scary! However, sometimes the problem is not rooted in the limbs at all but instead is radiating from the neck or back.
Following a thorough examination, Dr. Cao can help you understand the origin of the problem and determine if the condition needs to be addressed by a primary care doctor or specialist.
In many instances, limb numbness is caused by a structural imbalance or pinched nerve. For example, misalignment of the vertebrae in your cervical spine can pinch the nerve and cause irritation and numbness to the arms and fingers. Structural imbalance and pinched nerves can occur for several reasons, including:
- Awkward sleeping positions.
- Failure to warm up and/or cool down before and after exercise.
Early diagnosis is vital to preventing further damage and complications. In many cases, chiropractic care can help properly align your body so it heals in a natural way.
