Chiropractic Health Hints



Several causes of numbness and tingling to the arms originate
in the neck. Perhaps the most common is restriction of movement
of a spinal joint. This may cause direct friction to the nerve root as
it exits the spine, or secondary muscle tightness which can also pro-
duce nerve friction. Factors such as degeneration or thinning of the
spinal discs narrow the nerve openings in the spine and predispose
to nerve irritation. Those with disc thinning or degeneration,
however, respond to treatment well if normal joint movement can
be restored with maniupulation.
J.K. Paterson, a medical doctor from Great Britain, performed a large study on pa-
tients with spinal pain syndromes. Of the 364 patients studied with cervical spine or neck
disorders, 115 reported numbness, tingling or pain to one or both arms. A complete relief
of symptoms was obtained in 90 % of the patients with neck disorders using chiropractic..
Numbness or tingling to one or both arms is usually the result of a pinched or ir-
ritated nerve in the neck. Examination will reveal the cause and rule out "poor circula-
tion." Chiropractic treatment is most often successful in resolving this condition and should
be considered in anyone with these symptoms.
