Numbness & Tingling

Chiropractic Care 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. 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. Our chiropractors can successfully provide lasting relief for the underlying causes of numbness, tingling and pain.

Causes of Numbness & Tingling

The most common reasons for pinched nerves that cause pain with numbness and tingling include:


Misalignments in the spine, often from poor posture habits.

Poor Posture

Incorrect ergonomics at a workstation, lifting incorrectly or performing other repetitive tasks without proper form

Traumatic Injury

Car accident injury, sports injury, or other personal injuries.

Bulging or Herniated Discs

A disc may become bulged or herniated and allow its “jelly” to spill out and put pressure on nerves.

Chiropractic Treatments for Numbness & Tingling

These underlying causes of pinched nerves respond very well to chiropractic care. The location of a patient’s numbness and tingling sensations usually indicates where nerves are being affected; an x-ray will confirm the location and our chiropractors will provide precise chiropractic treatment to correct the problem.

Chiropractic spinal adjustments

Our doctors gentle, precise spinal adjustments realign vertebrae to remove pressure from discs, which relieves nerve pressure and pain.

Therapeutic exercises

Our chiropractor will teach you stretches and exercises to help you support proper neck posture and improve range of motion through the upper back, shoulders and arms. They can also advise you on better ergonomics at work or write a letter of recommendation to have your work station assessed.
