What Causes Numbness in Your Arms & Legs?
Often, numbness in your arms and legs has to do with a nerve problem. For instance, if you have diabetes, you could have an issue known as diabetic neuropathy. It occurs when long-time uncontrolled blood sugars cause damage to your nerves.
Multiple sclerosis could also be the culprit. With this condition, your body's immune system attacks the myelin of nerves. The myelin is a protective coating. As a result, your brain and other parts of your body affected by the condition can't communicate effectively. Over time, it can cause permanent damage and lead to numbness in the affected areas.
You can have numbness in your arms or legs from a spinal issue. If you have a problem with a pinched nerve in your cervical spine, you might notice arm numbness. Leg numbness can also stem from a pinched nerve in the lumbar portion of your back. Even sciatica can cause numbness in your legs. Regardless of what's causing your numbness, our team is here to help.
How a Chiropractor Diagnoses This Condition
To determine the cause of your numbness, our chiropractor will ask you to complete a comprehensive medical history report. It provides our practitioner with information about potential injuries, surgeries, or illnesses that could be causing your numbness. Our chiropractor will ask you questions about the frequency of your numbness, how long it lasts, and when it occurs. In some cases, our chiropractor may need imaging tests.
Treatment Options for Numbness in Arms & Legs
The treatment varies slightly based on your condition. Our practitioner may recommend you receive spinal adjustments. This can realign the spine to take pressure off the nerves. It can also ease irritation on the surrounding soft tissue.
Our practitioner can also recommend exercises. We will guide you through a series of exercises that slowly work a part of your body. This helps loosen the soft tissue to lessen pressure on the surrounding nerves. It also allows blood to circulate more adequately to an area, helping the nerves' healing process.
