As a chiropractor for sciatica and leg pain near Redwood City, CA, I’ve been looking at the leading causes of numbness and tingling among my patients. Of course, we know that these symptoms are signals stating that something is wrong in the body. The root cause, however, is often not identified right away.
There are several reasons why tingling and numbness may occur:
Another reason for tingling and numbness is a misalignment of the uppermost bones in the neck known as the C1 and C2 vertebrae. These bones are responsible for protecting the brainstem from damage.
Once a misalignment happens, the brainstem experiences pressure that it should not have. This undue pressure then causes numbness and tingling throughout the body.
But this is a problem that upper cervical chiropractic care can fix. Here at Advanced Spinal Care, I use gentle and precise techniques to bring these bones back to alignment and stop the tingling or numb sensation.
