Do you often have a sensation of pins and needles in your arms or legs? Does it feel like your extremities are “asleep” on a regular basis? If so, these tingling and numbness sensations can be extremely annoying, and sometimes even a sign of a larger issue. For some, these feelings can occur after sitting too long, while sleeping, or while holding your arms over your heads for any length of time, such as when blow drying or styling your hair. Most of the time, a numbness or tingling feeling isn’t usually a big concern, but because it can be frustrating and even painful, it is helpful to know that there is a solution available with chiropractic care.
Why Do I Have Numbness and Tingling?
Numbness and tingling can occur for any number of reasons. Some of the more common reasons include carpal tunnel syndrome and multiple sclerosis. Lack of blood flow can also cause the pins and needles sensation, which is often caused by a pinched nerve or poor circulation. More serious health concerns such as a stroke, seizures, or diabetes can also lead to this uncomfortable feeling in your extremities. But no matter what the cause, chiropractic care from a Bentonville chiropractor can alleviate the numbness and tingling so you can experience relief.
Chiropractic Care Addresses the Root Cause
A lot of the time, the cause of a numbness or tingling feeling is associated with the nerves. Chiropractic care focuses on improving the function of the central nervous system, including your nerves, which makes it an obvious choice for finding relief. Spinal misalignments can lead to improper blood flow, pinched nerves, carpal tunnel syndrome, or even migraines due to nerve interference. Bentonville chiropractor Dr. Tom Niemela addresses the root cause of nerve interference through gentle chiropractic adjustments to remove misalignments. Removing misalignments will improve blood flow, relieve pinched nerves, or even bring about carpal tunnel relief to alleviate the numbness and tingling sensation that has you on edge. As an added bonus, chiropractic care also improves overall health and quality of life so that you can live your best life.
It Has Worked for Others and Can Work for You!
When some people first discover chiropractic care for numbness and tingling, they may be skeptical, wondering how chiropractic care can fix the issue. But case studies and chiropractic research show how chiropractic has worked for others and how well it can work for you, too. One such case study looked at a 24-year-old woman who suffered for two years from paresthesia, or numbness and tingling, in her right arm. She found full relief after only one week of chiropractic care! In another case study, 162 people sought chiropractic care for nerve-related pain caused by radiculopathy. Over 85% of those who were under chiropractic care found relief from numbness and tingling after just nine visits to the chiropractor.
