Pins & Needles
We commonly help people who are experiencing pins and needles, especially in the hands, arms or feet/legs. The cause of the pins and needles is often nerve irritation from spinal dysfunction. Nerve irritation can occur when spinal joints are misaligned, not moving properly or have lost their normal spacing. An X-ray may be necessary to support the chiropractor’s examination findings.
People who experience pins and needles will often also experience a loss of strength, although this often goes unnoticed. If you have pins and needles in your hands you may notice that you drop things or become clumsy. During your examination our chiropractors will perform a range of tests to determine the cause of your pins and needles and how to correct it.
