Numbness and Tingling
If you are experiencing tingling and numbness in your hands or feet, it could indicate a sensory weakness in the nervous system. We can determine the root cause and provide numbness and tingling relief!
Have you been experiencing numbness and tingling in your legs, arms, feet or fingers? Numbness and tingling in the extremities are usually indicative of a longer standing problem affecting the sensory portion of the nerves. If you suffer from this condition, it’s imperative to have your symptoms checked out right away.
Don’t dismiss tingling or numbness in your extremities — especially if it doesn’t go away. The issue has most likely been occurring for much longer than you have been experiencing the symptoms. If left untreated, it can be dangerous, as tingling or numbness could be indicative of stroke, diabetes or multiple sclerosis. The chiropractors at Pain Arthritis Relief Center, located in Rockville, Maryland, can determine whether the issue stems from actual damage to a nerve or is referred from the nerves. Our holistic techniques will get to the root of the problem so your body can function properly again. Schedule your appointment to learn more.
Causes of Numbness & Tingling
Though often felt in the feet and hands, numbness and tingling can occur anywhere and be caused by a number of different things. Such symptoms can even be a result of sitting or standing in one position for an extended period of time. Other causes of numbness and tingling include:
- A herniated disc
- An animal or insect bite
- Certain medication
- Lack of vitamin B12
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Multiple sclerosis
What should I wear to acupuncture sessions?
You will want to be as comfortable as possible during treatments. It’s important that the acupuncturist is able to access various points of the body. Wearing loose clothing is helpful and allows your acupuncturist to easily administer treatment. Either wear comfortable clothing or bring a change of clothing with you to make treatments as comfortable as possible.

Will I be able to relax during treatments?
Acupuncturists can provide you with a relaxed setting to receive acupuncture treatments. Often, they may lower the lights, turn on a sound machine and even a heat lamp. Acupuncture can actually help to relieve stress. Because of this, many people may find that once needles are placed they are able to fully relax and may even fall asleep.
