Numbness & Tingling
Irvine Chiropractor Successfully Treats Numbness and Tingling
Paresthesia—the word may be unfamiliar, but the sensation of numbness and tingling, most commonly in the extremities, is something many have experienced. It is a classic symptom of pinched nerves. And although everyone has had a hand or a foot fall asleep after sitting or lying in an awkward position for too long, there are some people for whom these “pins and needles” are disrupting their lives on a regular basis. Irvine chiropractor Dr. John Lee and his team can successfully provide lasting relief for the underlying causes of numbness, tingling and pain.
Chiropractic Care for Numbness, Tingling and Pain Relief
The most common reasons for pinched nerves that manifest with pain combined with numbness and tingling include:
If the pins, needles and pain occur in the feet or legs, the pinched nerve is likely located in the lower back. If numbness, tingling and pain radiate down from the lower back and into one or both of the legs, this is called sciatica.
If the numbness and tingling occurs in the arms or hands, a nerve in the lower part of the neck or upper back may be pinched. In cases of carpal tunnel syndrome, there are usually nerves being pinched in both the neck as well as in the wrist.
