Numbness & Tingling in Hands When Sleeping

Quite often in my practice I get a patient who comes in with numbness and tingling in their hands when they sleep or lay down.  This is a very treatable condition with Chiropractic care and I have had great success with treating it.

First is to determine where the pinching is coming from.  The numbness is caused by a pinched nerve either in the neck, upper back, arm or wrist.  A physical and orthopedic examination is performed to determine where the problem is and sometimes x-rays may also be necessary.

Treatments to relieving the pinched nerve is done by providing adjustments to the neck, upper back, shoulder or wrist and  it is very effective treatment.

Also muscle work, stretching and having the patient wear a wrist brace at night assist in the recovery of the numbness and tingling.

Acupuncture can also be a very effective treatment for more chronic or complicated cases.

If you are suffering with any numbness or tingling, please call my office for a FREE consult and examination when you mention this post.

I look forward to taking great care of you!
