We Treat Numbness And Tingling In Dublin, Ireland

Numbness and tingling are not only uncomfortable, but they can be debilitating at times.

If you’re experiencing numbness or tingling in your arms, legs, or face, it could be caused by a variety of conditions including injury to the nerves themselves. Luckily there are non-surgical treatment options for numbness and tingling!

This blog post will cover all the treatments we offer here at Dublin Chiropractic & Physiotherapy Clinic to help numbness and tingling sufferers lead a more comfortable life.

What Causes Numbness And Tingling?

Numbness and tingling sensations can be caused by a number of reasons. Numbness often begins in the arms or legs, which can progress to the fingers or toes. The most likely reason for numbness and tingling is pressure on your nerves – either from a herniated disc, inflammation of the joints of the spine, or muscle stiffness (i.e piriformis syndrome).

If you are experiencing numbness or tingling it is important to consult a medical professional to ensure numbness is not a sign of something more serious or prevent the condition from worsening.

How Does Chiropractic Care Help With Numbness And Tingling?

Dublin Chiropractic care can help numbness and tingling by getting to the root cause of your numb feelings. After an examination, we may find that numbness is caused by pressure on your nerves or other abnormalities in your spine.

What Else Causes Numbness And Tingling?

Some serious reasons why someone might have these feelings may be diabetes, multiple sclerosis, a seizure disorder, or a stroke. For this reason, your peace of mind and overall comfort, you must find the root cause of your numbness and tingling.

However, as we have mentioned before, in many cases, these sensations in your arms and legs are the result of something a little less serious. For example, carpal tunnel syndrome or migraines are typical sources. A common and fixable cause is pinched nerves. When blood flow is restricted because of a pinched nerve, you could experience an uncomfortable tingling or numb feeling in your hands, legs, ext.

Spinal Misalignments And Numbness And Tingling

Misalignments in the spine can be the root cause of a variety of health conditions relating to this feeling, including migraines, pinched nerves, or even carpal tunnel syndrome. A misalignment can cause interference with the nerves that could impact normal blood flow and the communication between the body and the brain, which then leads to dysfunction.

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 Demonstrates the Effectiveness Of Chiropractic Care

There have been case studies that show that chiropractic care has helped people find relief from numbness and tingling.

In one such study, a woman suffered from paresthesia(a pins and needles sensation). For two years this affected her right arm and led to insomnia.

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

Physiotherapy Care In Dublin, Ireland

Physiotherapy treatment for numbness and tingling can vary depending on the underlying cause. However, physiotherapists will begin with a thorough examination of your movement patterns to determine if there is altered body mechanics or muscle imbalance that could contribute to numbness and tingling.

We then carry out manual therapy techniques such as massage therapy/deep tissue release and joint manipulations to release tight muscles and joints to improve nerve mobility.

We also implement an individually tailored treatment plan with both supervised and home exercises that can help retrain your body’s posture, reduce numbness and tingling, while improving overall function at work or during daily or sporting activities.

Research shows physiotherapist-led exercise therapy is very effective in reducing numbness and tingling by increasing the flexibility of the affected joints, nerves, and muscles. Physiotherapy can also improve balance and coordination which can be secondary symptoms of nerve compression, as well as normalize sensation.
