Numbness & Tingling in Hands When Sleeping
Quite often, I see a patient who comes in with numbness and tingling in their hands when they sleep or lie down. This is a very treatable condition with chiropractic care, with which I have had great success.
First, I determine where the pinching is coming from. Pinched nerves in the neck, upper back, arm, or wrist can cause numbness. A physical and orthopedic examination is performed, sometimes including x-rays, to determine where the problem is.
Adjustments of the neck, upper back, shoulder, or wrist are very effective in relieving the pinched nerve. Also, muscle work, stretching, and wearing a wrist brace at night assist in the recover of the numbness and tingling. Acupuncture can also be a very effective treatment for more chronic or complicated cases.
I look forward to taking great care of you!
