At Dunwoody Chiropractic Center, we offer several recovery treatment options to reduce your feelings of numbness and tingling. Dr. Munira Patel aims to uncover the source of the issue and works with you to eliminate the cause so you do not have to fear the return of numbness or tingling. If you are experiencing symptoms similar to an arm or leg “falling asleep”, a nerve may be compressed in your spine or a nearby joint. Chiropractic care helps to reduce the pressure on the nerve so nerve signals and circulation flow freely. When your body is operating with proper alignment, feelings of numbness and tingling are reduced and you can return to performing your daily tasks. Our holistic care options extend into improving your overall wellness to eliminate physical and environmental reasons for nerve compression. Let Dunwoody Chiropractic Center show you the benefits of our alternative health care.
Restore Nerve Flow with Our Dunwoody Chiropractor
Dunwoody Chiropractic Center welcomes residents of Metro Atlanta to visit our wellness center to improve nerve-impairment conditions. If you are dealing with numbness or tingling in your arms and legs, it may signal:
- Misaligned Vertebrae– the vertebrae in your spine may shift out of alignment due to overuse, poor posture, a genetic condition, or an injury. When this occurs, the vertebrae may compress the nerve that exits the spine. This nerve sends signals to your arms or legs, depending on the location, and if it is compressed, the signal weakens or disappears. You experience this as numbness or tingling. Out-of-place vertebrae may also reduce the flow of circulation, which prevents oxygen from reaching your muscles and can also result in these uncomfortable sensations.
- A Herniated Disc– the spinal discs are located between the vertebrae to provide a cushion for easier movement. If the disc is damaged and leaks out of its contained space, the nerve signals are interrupted.
- Spinal Swelling– Dr. Patel will examine your spine to determine if you are dealing with any spinal swelling or inflammation that may be compromising nerve flow.
- Other Conditions– Dr. Patel will also help you rule out other conditions such as MS that are characterized by feelings of numbness and tingling.
Once we have determined why your nerves are misfiring, we are able to develop a treatment plan. This will include chiropractic adjustments to take the pressure off the nerves and, as a result, often eliminate your symptoms. With consistent treatment, your body learns to stay in a healthier alignment. Adjustments also encourage herniated discs to reabsorb and reduce nerve interference. Our holistic approach extends into your lifestyle, as we will show you exercises to support healthy nerve and blood flow. We also encourage proper posture as a way to prevent future concerns and improve your overall health.
