Numbness and tingling are symptoms generally associated with nerve damage or irritation. The most common type of injury to a nerve is an impingement or “pinching” of the nerve. Nerve impingement often occurs at the spine and can be caused by being “sandwiched” between two spinal bones (subluxation), pressed upon by a bulging disc (herniated disc) or encroached upon by bony overgrowth (spinal stenosis).
The area where you experience pinched nerve symptoms is indicative of where in the spine the “pinching” occurs. Nerve irritation in the neck often leads to symptoms in the shoulders, arms or hands. Similar problems in the low back can cause numbness and tingling down the legs and into the feet. Sharp pain down the back of the legs is often referred to as Sciatica.
Pinched nerves can cause a variety of symptoms including sharp, shooting pain; numbness; tingling; and weakness. The symptoms can occur near the site of the impingement or can “radiate” into the arms or legs. If this occurs in the neck, the pinched nerve symptoms will often occur in the shoulders, arms or hands. If it is in the low back, then the pinched nerve symptoms are more likely to be in the buttock, hips, legs or feet
Non-Surgical Spinal Disc Decompression
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression provides relief to Pinched Nerve sufferers by gently separating the bones of the spine.
