Numbness and tingling can occur for different reasons, including nerve damage caused by chronic diseases like diabetes or multiple sclerosis, as part of an allergic reaction, and as a result of nerve impingement, also known as “pinched” nerves. Nerve impingement is one of the most common causes of nerve-related symptoms like numbness and tingling, as well as electrical shock-like pain, dull aching, and weakness in the affected limb. The most common causes of nerve impingement are herniated discs and diseases that affect the spine, including arthritis, spondylolisthesis, and spinal stenosis.
When nerve symptoms are caused by nerve impingements and spinal issues, chiropractic adjustment and deep tissue massage and manipulation can help by relieving pressure and compression on nerves, especially where they exit the spine or pass through narrow or constricted areas. Adjustments help gently reposition the vertebrae so disc herniation can be resolved, and adjustments and deep tissue stimulation with massage and other techniques help by releasing tension and built-up toxins that can cause or exacerbate pain. All of these approaches improve circulation and promote normal neural signaling between the brain and the rest of the body by eliminating pressure on the neural pathways.
Everyone suffers from a pins and needles sensation from time to time. Numbness and tingling are abnormal sensations that can occur most commonly in the fingers, hands, feet, arms, or legs. The two types of numbness and tingling you can experience are: Paresthesia – a spontaneous abnormal sensation of “pins and needles” or “foot falling asleep” and Dysesthesia- an irritating sensation caused by a stimulus that does not normally produce pain. If the sensation does not go away on its own or lasts for more than a few minutes you should seek professional assessment, especially if the numbness accompanies pain in the neck, shoulders, or back.
