Numbness and Tingling

Home - Numbness and Tingling

If you are experiencing numbness and tingling, you may be curious about whether chiropractic care can help alleviate your symptoms. Chiropractors specialize in aligning the spine and relieving pressure on nerves, making them well-suited to address issues related to nerve function. Fortunately, chiropractic adjustments can indeed help many individuals find relief from tingling and numbness. To determine if chiropractic care is suitable for your specific case, it is important to understand the underlying cause of the numbness.

Understanding the Cause of Numbness

Numbness and tingling serve as signals from your body, indicating that something is affecting your nerves. It could be a sign of localized nerve damage or compression of a nerve in another area of your body. When discussing numbness, you may come across four main terms:

  1. Neuropathy
  2. Paresthesia
  3. Dysesthesia
  4. Peripheral Neuropathy

Neuropathy and peripheral neuropathy are essentially the same condition, referring to damage to the peripheral nerves. This damage can result from various underlying conditions, such as diabetes. Individuals with peripheral neuropathy commonly experience numbness, prickling, tingling, or burning sensations.

Paresthesia describes the “pins and needles” sensation that people often experience. If you’ve ever had a limb “fall asleep,” you are familiar with the sensation of paresthesia. Dysesthesia, on the other hand, refers to feelings of itching, pain, burning, shocking, or tightening in the nerves. While neuropathy typically presents as paresthesia, it can occasionally manifest as dysesthesia.
