Numbness and Tingling in Portland

Numbness and Tingling in Portland OR

Symptoms:

  • “Pins and Needles” sensation
  • Loss of feeling
  • Persistent prickling sensation
  • Pain stemming from the spine

What Causes Numbness and Tingling
Most of the time, the feeling of numbness or tingling is due to the impingement of a sensory nerve, and once the impingement is removed, normal sensation will return. However, tingling and numbness can be indicators of other chronic nerve irritation. A herniated disk can inflame spinal nerves, triggering numbness or tingling in the legs. Sometimes caused by a herniated disk, sciatic nerve pain (often referenced and sciatica) originates in the lower back when there is pressure on the sciatic nerve. The result can be numbness and tingling typically felt throughout the leg.


How King Chiropractic Clinic Can Help
Typically, relieving numbness and tingling entails removing the interference causing nerve impingement. Spinal alignments and chiropractic adjustments can aid in freeing compressed nerves due to spinal misalignment. In many cases of numbness and tingling, especially those related to sciatic nerve compression, proper diagnosis is crucial. Chiropractic care is tailored the cause of pain, and often a combination of treatments including cold therapy, spinal manipulations, nerve stimulations, and at-home exercise offer the most effective treatment to nerve-related conditions.
