Numbness and Tingling in Calgary NW

numb handNumbness and tingling sensations in the body can, of course, be a cause for concern. At our clinic, we’ve seen plenty of cases where these symptoms are related to spinal alignment issues and degeneration of the spine.

If there are any abnormalities in the spinal alignment, that can lead to degeneration in the spine and the discs. What happens is this degeneration can affect the nerves that travel down into your arms, causing tingling and numbness in your hands. By restoring spinal health and relieving pressure off these nerves, we often see a reduction or complete disappearance of these symptoms, leading to healthier patients.

The Importance of Thorough Examination

Before deciding on a care plan, a thorough examination is crucial. We look at range of motion, palpate for soft tissue spasms or swelling, and conduct orthopedic tests. If needed, we take X-rays which provide definitive insights into the condition of the patient’s spine over time. This comprehensive evaluation helps us pinpoint the exact causes of numbness and tingling.

The Power of Adjustments

Adjustments are a key tool in any chiropractor’s kit. Our patients receive precise adjustments at the right place and time. This targeted approach takes the pressure off the nerves, relieving numbness and tingling sensations.

Tailoring Care to Individual Needs

Every patient is unique, and so should be their care plan. A chiropractic session that addresses numbness and tingling is customized to each patient’s specific needs. The adjustment itself is catered to factors such as age, the extent of degeneration, and symptomatology.

Finding the right frequency for chiropractic care is essential, and it may look different for each individual. While some may experience positive changes quickly, others may require a more extended course of treatment to achieve their desired results. By working collaboratively with your chiropractor you can develop a treatment plan that aligns with your individual needs and promotes long-term well being.
