Numbness in Arms and Hands

Numbness in Arms and Hands

Numbness in the arms and hands can stem from one or multiple points of nerve compression. Compression of the nerve as it exits the vertebral segments are more commonly referred to as nerve root impingement. In addition to nerve root impingement, you can also get compression from the muscle tissue as the nerves move away from the spine to the upper extremities. This is more commonly known as peripheral nerve entrapment or thoracic outlet syndrome. Last, but not least, would be carpal tunnel syndrome compressing the median nerve as it passes through the carpal tunnel into the hand. It is important to be able to identify which one, if not multiple areas, is creating compression that lead to numbness in your arm and your hand.

Car Accident and Work Related Injuries

Car Accident and Work Related Injuries

When connective tissue is stretched further than it is anatomically allowed, it will tear. Joint capsule tearing or muscle tearing heals by binding with adhesions or scar tissue. As time goes on, the adhesions actually worsen not improve. Therefore, when people start feeling better within a week or two after an accident and then six months later start developing chronic headaches and pain, they have a hard time correlating the two. It's important to ensure that the tissue heels as close to normal as possible following an accident. Chiropractors have the unique ability to motion palpate joint segments and help these tissues heal closer to normal

Muscle Tension and Stress

Muscle Tension and Stress

Muscle tension in itself can stem from poor posture, sleeping position, daily activities. However, persistent muscle tension may have an underlying cause of segmental or joint dysfunction. When we have chronic repetitive stress and or direct trauma to connective tissue, they will heal stiff and bind. Most traumas occur when we are young and immortal. However, as this tissue binds and we remain active, it creates a tug-of-war between your joints and your muscle tissues. This struggle between the tissues often leads to chronic localized muscle tension and knots. Chiropractic care has the unique ability to break adhesions of the joint complex.
