How Chiropractic Can Help Numbness or Tingling,
A numbness or tingling sensation in your extremities can be extremely annoying and uncomfortable.
However, numbness and tingling can be associated with other health concerns as well; it can also bring about stress and anxiety. However, saying that, numbness and tingling don’t have to be something you live with day to day.
To rule out significant health concerns, we first determine the root cause of the sensation. In many cases, tingling or numbness in the extremities isn’t as dangerous as you think. The reason often lies within the spine. After a consultation, and we find this to be the case, a Dublin Chiropractic doctor can address the issue at hand to reduce or get rid of both numbness and tingling.

After a consultation, Dr Woods may decide to perform a gentle adjustment that removes misalignments and then the nerve interference, opening up blood flow and correcting health concerns, so your body can once again function as it should.
In many cases, tingling and numbness can be fixed with consistent chiropractic care. Additionally, while chiropractic alleviates these annoying sensations, it also promotes your overall health and wellness of so you can feel your absolute best.
Research Demonstrate the Effectiveness of Chiropractic

After only a single week of chiropractic care, her numbness and tingling were entirely gone.
A different study involving 162 people with nerve pain called radiculopathy discovered that 85% of people were able to find relief with just nine visits to a chiropractor were free from nerve pain, numbness, and tingling
