What Causes Numbness and Tingling?
There are a number of potential causes of numbness and tingling, and the exact cause will likely depend on your individual situation. In some cases, this symptom may be due to an injury or trauma to the nerves. This can occur with an acute injury, such as a car accident, or from repetitive motions that put strain on the nerves over time. Other causes of numbness and tingling can include:
- Compression of the nerves
- Pressure on the spine
- Vitamin B12 deficiency
These are just a few potential causes. It can be important to seek chiropractic care and attention to determine the exact cause of your numbness and tingling. While some issues can be resolved using at-home treatments, others may require more extensive interventions such as chiropractic care at our office. In addition, the length of time needed for you to recover may vary.
