What is Numbness & Tingling in Arms or Legs?
Several causes of numbness and tingling to the arms originate in the neck. The most common is restriction of movement of a spinal joint, which may cause direct friction to the nerve root as it leaves the spine or secondary muscle tightness, which can also produce nerve friction. Factors such as degeneration or thinning of the spinal discs narrow the nerve openings in the spine and predispose to nerve irritation. Individuals with disc thinning or degeneration often respond to treatment well if there is normal joint movement which will be restored with manipulation.
Studies in the past suggest that patients with spinal pain syndromes such as the cervical spine or neck disorders about half of the patients reported numbness, tingling or pain in one or both arms. Many individuals can reduce the amount of numbness or tingling in their arms or legs from chiropractic care. Numbness or tingling in one or both arms is usually the result of a pinched or irritated nerve in the neck. Chiropractic treatment is most often successful in resolving this condition and should be considered in anyone with these symptoms.
