Numbness & Tingling
Numbness and tingling
Numbness and Tingling Treatment is Provided at Hogan Chiropractic
Chronic or recurring numbness and tingling in your fingers, hands, legs, arms, hips, and shoulders can be caused by a few different conditions. Nerve compression can be caused by an excess pressure on a nerve or nerves by tight muscle, disc herniations, poor posture, or even arthritic changes. Numbness and tingling treatment provided by your Sugar Land chiropractors at Hogan Chiropractic can remove nerve compression using adjustments, decompression therapy, MLS laser therapy and an effective variety of injury rehabilitation techniques.
Common Causes of Numbness and Tingling
Lumbar and Cervical Radiculopathy
If a vertebral disc bulges out between vertebrae and presses against an exiting nerve root located in your lower back or neck, you may feel numbness and tingling in your lower back, hips, legs, arms, and hands. Radiating pain or “pins and needles” spreading into the arms, hands, legs and buttock/leg pain that worsens after sitting or certain movements are all signs you should make an appointment at Hogan Chiropractic for nerve pain relief.
A herniated disc is typically the cause of sciaticaor compression of the sciatic nerve. Other possible reasons for sciatica include bone spurs, a tumor or abscess pressing against the nerve, diabetes or lumbar spinal stenosis.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Irritation of the median nerve extending through the wrist and into the hand and fingers causes pain, numbness and tingling and swelling characteristic of carpal tunnel syndrome. People engaging in repetitious hand movements (typists, painters, assembly line workers) can develop carpal tunnel syndrome and can have great success with chiropractic manipulation, manual therapy, and rehab exercises.
Narrowing of spaces in the spine can compress nerves traveling through your spine. Symptoms of spinal stenosis involve muscle weakness, pain and numbness and tingling throughout the lower back and/or neck. Age-related wear and tear and osteoarthritis are the most common causes of spinal stenosis.
Injury to the anterior muscles of the hip due to bursitis or tendonitis causing pain, inflammation, numbness and tingling and stiffness may be diagnosed as iliopsoas syndrome. Some people that sit throughout the majority of the day, have had prior hip surgery, bursitis, or other conditions are more prone to developing iliopsoas pain.
Damage to peripheral nerves, or nerves extending into your feet, hands, arms, and legs, that causes numbness and tingling, pain, weakness and burning sensations may be peripheral neuropathy. Causes of peripheral neuropathy include infections, inherited diseases, traumatic injuries, and diabetes. One of three types of peripheral neuropathy may be diagnosed by your Sugar Land chiropractor: mononeuropathy (damage to one nerve); multiple mononeuropathy (damage to at least two nerves); or polyneuropathy (damage to many nerves).
Types of Chiropractic Treatment for Numbness and Tingling Provided at Hogan Chiropractic
Depending on what is causing your numbness and tingling, our chiropractors may recommend adjustments to alleviate the pressure off the affected nerves, spinal decompression therapy to increase space between vertebrae or multi-wave locked system (MLS) laser therapy. Noninvasive and painless, MLS laser therapy utilizes therapeutic effects of infrared light that works at the cellular level to reduce inflammation. The MLS laser therapy provides holistic pain relief without using drugs or surgery.
