Pins and Needles
Central City Chiropractic Offers Help
Developing pins and needles into your hands and fingers can be quite concerning, at times disrupting daily activities or even waking you from sleep. There are many different causes of tingling in your hands. While some pins and needles may develop following trauma with direct stress to nerves; others gradually appear. Overuse and poor posture can lead to shortening of muscles and increased pressure on nerves and joints.
Impingement of different nerves can occur at many different places along the path of the nerve, including your wrists, elbows, neck, as well as various muscles. The location of the tingling into your hands suggests which nerve is likely to be involved.

The Role of Chiropractic
Chiropractors are well trained in the examination of such symptoms and understand the paths of all nerves into your hands. By performing various tests they will be able to determine the location of any impingement, detect the cause of your symptoms and treat it accordingly. Treatment may include manipulation/mobilisation of any joint from your neck through to your wrist, as well as lengthening of any muscles in the same region. Our chiropractors at Central City Chiropractic will address any external factors including ergonomics, as well as provide you with appropriate exercises to minimize the chance of your symptoms recurring.
