Your Chiropractic Physician will begin by determining the cause of your numbness and tingling by obtaining an accurate medical history and by performing a physical exam, which may include orthopedic and neurologic testing. Further evaluations may be needed to determine the cause or extent of your condition, which might include: blood tests, CT scan, MRI, vascular ultrasound, or electro diagnostic testing such as nerve conduction velocity studies.
If the doctor determines that your condition may respond well to chiropractic care, a chiropractic care plan will be created for you that aims to eliminate irritation and restore proper functioning of the nerves. In addition to chiropractic care, this care plan may include physiotherapy to reduce inflammation, and/or nutritional and lifestyle coaching to address any possible metabolic causes of your symptoms. Painful conditions may also be addressed with accupunture.
Most cases of numbness and tingling that we see in our Chicago office can be treated conservatively with chiropractic care. In some instances when drugs, injections or surgery may be needed, the doctor would then refer you to a specialist in the appropriate area and will work closely with that specialist to continue helping you resolve your symptoms.
