Whether alone or accompanied by other symptoms such as general pain, neuropathy (nerve pain or tingling) and numbness experienced anywhere in your body, but especially in the hands and feet can be debilitating. These symptoms limit mobility, dexterity, coordination, and balance, affecting and hindering daily life.
Neuropathy and numbness occur as a result of several diseases, conditions, injuries, and even anxiety. Anything which damages, blocks, or compresses the tissue of the nervous system. Certain conditions including diabetes and cancer treatment damage the tissue of the nervous system. Injuries such as whiplash, sprains, and strains and spinal conditions such as sciatica and herniated discs compress the nerves at their source, the spinal column. Anxiety and stress also create blockages along the spinal cord by created spinal subluxations (vertebrae which are not properly aligned).
These points of damaged tissue and compressed nerves affect the proper function of the nervous system as a whole, blocking the signals which move between the brain and the rest of the body through the nerve tissue. This hinders the operation of the rest of the body's systems and leads to symptoms including pain, neuropathy, and numbness throughout the body, but especially in the limbs, hands, and feet.
At Cole Chiropractic Clinic, our chiropractor in Tulsa uses individualized chiropractic wellness treatment plans to help each patient heal their own unique injuries and correct spinal alignment. Wellness plans draw from our complete list of holistic services which includes spinal manipulation and adjustment, corrective exercise, physical therapy, nutritional and lifestyle counseling, inter-segmental traction, and ultrasound therapy. These treatments complement one another and work in tandem to correct spinal alignment, reduce inflammation, boost circulation, accelerate healing, and improve nervous system function.
Most patients experience immediate relief from symptoms of pain, numbness, and tingling after their first adjustment. Patients who decide to participate in an ongoing wellness plan report reduce frequency, severity, and duration of symptoms when they do recur. Healing and achieving an optimal level of wellness does take time, however. Each patient's body is different and will require a different number and types of treatments and therapies to achieve their healthiest possible state.
