A spontaneous abnormal sensation of "pins and needles" or "foot falling asleep"
An irritating sensation caused by a stimulus that does not normally produce pain Almost everyone experiences paresthesia from time to time, and it merits seeing the doctor if it is recurring or lasts longer than a few minutes without going away. On the flip side, dyesthesia is a less frequent occurrence. So if you experience numbness, pain, tingling, or irritation after contact with something that does not usually cause you that reaction, then notifying your doctor is always a good idea. However, one of the most Important things to understand about numbness and tingling is that they are not a condition but a symptom that could be caused by any number of different (and unrelated) conditions. The conditions associated with symptoms of numbness and tingling are grouped into three different categories based on their cause:
- Neurologic Event
- Metabolic Disorder
Chiropractic care addresses the cause of the trauma, and not the mere symptoms of numbness, tingling, and shooting pains, which will usually be alleviated once the cause of the trauma is suitably addressed. At PATH Medical, we begin by determining the root of the problem, and if the condition is evaluated as having the potential to respond well to chiropractic care, we will include a variety of physiotherapy to reduce inflammation.
