Chiropractor for Numbness and Tingling in Hands and Feet
If you are experiencing numbness and tingling in your hands and feet, you may be wondering whether or not you need to see a chiropractor.
While there are many potential causes of these symptoms, chiropractic care can be an effective treatment for numbness and tingling caused by nerve compression.
When the nerves that travel to your extremities are compressed, they can become irritated and inflamed, leading to numbness, tingling, and pain.
A chiropractor can help to relieve the pressure on these nerves by realigning the spine and correcting any joint dysfunction. In addition, chiropractic care can also help to reduce inflammation and improve blood flow to the affected area.
If you are experiencing numbness and tingling, consider making an appointment with a chiropractor to see if this type of care can help you find relief.
