Pain, Tingling, and Numbness, Oh My!
By Donna Stark
The human body loves to talk and when something is wrong, it rarely hesitates to let you know. The messages it sends are generally crystal clear and can oftentimes be filled with pain and discomfort. When we get those messages, our first instinct is to act as fast as we can and most of us will head to a doctor right away.
But sometimes, the messages our bodies send aren't so easy to decipher. Instead of pain, these messages are filled with a little tingle or some numbness here and there, and we may not act as quickly as we should. Now don't get me wrong ... it's still easy to hear those types of messages. But many people aren't entirely sure what they should do with them, and that is why chiropractic care at The Joint Chiropractic is so important!
What Is Going On?
Your nerves run throughout your entire body like a bunch of strings and if the bones in your spine are not aligned correctly, those strings are going to be affected. You may feel pain, tingling, or numbness anywhere in your extremities but if you choose to only pay attention to the pain, you could be doing your body a huge disservice. If left untreated, those tingling and numbness sensations have the potential to cause significant nerve issues over time, but worse than that, they could also result in permanent nerve damage!
