What is numbness and tingling?

  • Numbness is often described as a lack of sensation or a feeling of "deadness" in a specific part of the body. It's like a loss of touch sensation, which can make you feel as if the affected area isn't part of your body.
  • Tingling is a pins-and-needles sensation, similar to the sensation experienced when a limb "falls asleep." This symptom may be transient, but when persistent, it could signal an underlying health issue.

Both numbness and tingling are not diseases but symptoms indicating a nerve problem.

What causes numbness & tingling?

Numbness and tingling typically indicate a problem with the peripheral nerves, which are the extensive network of nerves that transmit signals between the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) and the rest of the body. Here are some common causes:

Nerve compression or entrapment

This condition occurs when a nerve is physically compressed, often due to repetitive motions or holding the body in one position for too long. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a classic example of nerve entrapment.

Nerve damage or neuropathy

This can result from conditions such as diabetes, which can damage the peripheral nerves over time, leading to numbness and tingling, among other symptoms.

Certain diseases and conditions

Multiple sclerosis, stroke, migraines, and seizures can interfere with nerve function, causing numbness and tingling. Infections that affect the nerves, like Lyme disease, can also cause these symptoms.

Vitamin deficiencies

Certain B vitamins are crucial for nerve health. Deficiencies in vitamins B12, B1, B6, and niacin can cause numbness and tingling.

Toxins and alcohol

Exposure to heavy metals, certain medications, and chronic alcohol abuse can damage nerves and cause these symptoms.

Autoimmune diseases

Conditions like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis can lead to peripheral neuropathy, manifesting as numbness and tingling.

Symptoms of numbness and tingling

The symptoms of numbness and tingling can range from mild and intermittent to severe and constant. They can include:

  • A "pins and needles" sensation
  • A feeling of weakness or heaviness in the affected area
  • Loss of sensation or a feeling of "deadness"
  • Burning or cold sensations
  • Muscle spasms or twitching

If you're experiencing these symptoms, seeking professional help is essential as they can be signs of a more serious underlying condition.

How we treat numbness & tingling

At FreeForm Chiropractic, we start by conducting a comprehensive evaluation to identify the root cause of your symptoms. Identifying the cause of the condition will involve a physical examination, X-rays, and, in some cases, other diagnostic tests. Once we have diagnosed the cause, we develop a personalized treatment plan that may include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: These can help realign your spine, relieving pressure on nerves that may be causing your symptoms.
  • Massage therapy: This can help improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote healing in the affected areas.
  • Physical therapy exercises: These can strengthen your muscles, improve your flexibility, and enhance your overall nerve function.
  • Lifestyle changes: We provide guidance on posture, ergonomics, nutrition, and other lifestyle factors that can affect nerve health and function.
