Numbness or Tingling

If you’ve ever leant on your arm for too long or sat in one spot for a protracted period, you’ve more than likely experienced numbness or tingling. The medical term for this is paraesthesia or as it’s commonly known as – pins and needles. Pins and needles are rarely painful though the condition can be characterised by feelings such as:

  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Burning
  • Pricking

While numbness or tingling can theoretically occur anywhere on the body, it tends to affect the extremities such as the arms, feet, legs and hands. For most people, numbness or tingling lasts only a few minutes. Any experience that lasts for an extended period is classified as chronic numbness and advice should be sought from trained professionals, such as our chiropractors in Dubai.

 

Causes

The most common cause of pins and needles is due to lack of blood supply as a result of pressure being applied to the affected area. In the case of chronic numbness or tingling, this could be a sign of an underlying issue such as a neck or back injury or a herniated disk. The problem occurs when a nerve becomes trapped or pinched resulting in reduced sensation.

Other causes include multiple sclerosis, seizures, Raynaud’s phenomenon, etc. The type of care that you will require will ultimately depend on the cause. At Blue Tree Clinics, we are able to treat numbness or tingling in Dubai in most cases, and where required, will refer you to a specialist.

 

Treatments

If you’re suffering the effects of recurring or chronic numbness or tingling and are concerned as to what is causing it, give us a call to setup an appointment. Pins and needles could very well be a sign of a much larger problem which if ignored could cause you more harm than good. The first job of our chiropractors in Dubai is to assess your medical history and carry out a full physical exam of your back, neck and extremities.

Some conditions require further testing to uncover which we are well-equipped to take care of. Our chiropractors in Dubai are able to perform MRI and CT scans, ultrasounds and blood tests as well as neurological and orthopaedic testing. In some cases, we may refer you to a specialist who we will liaise with for the duration of your treatment.

If your case would benefit from our expert treatments, we will be happy to devise a bespoke chiropractic plan tailored to your particular needs. We employ a wide range of techniques which includes physical therapy, lifestyle coaching and expert advice. Our goal is to address the cause rather than just the symptoms.

Testimonials

“For the last month or so I have been plagued with constant pins and needles in my left arm which I was obviously pretty concerned about. Turns out that it was the result of a trapped nerve and after only a few treatments I the pins and needles subsided.”
Walker

“My back has been giving me serious issues for a while now and I had started to notice numbness down my right side. After a lengthy consultation with a chiropractor at Blue Tree, I discovered that all my problems were the result of a slipped disc. Two months on and the numbness and pain are all but gone.”
