Treatment of Arm and Hand Numbness

Are you ever affected by numbness or tingling of your hands or arms? Is the problem chronic or is it directly related to a specific behavior or action that you perform? Arm and hand numbness can be the result of nerve damage or a joint problem such as carpel tunnel or arthritis. If you’re not sure what’s causing numbness in your extremities and it’s interfering with your wellness and ability, getting a diagnosis and practical treatment is very important.

The services we provide are specifically design to increase circulation, strengthen the joints and muscles, and relieve tension and inflammation from the nerves and other soft tissues.

The best therapy for you will depend upon your specific needs and condition, but just a few of the treatments we offer for arm and hand numbness includes ultrasound, joint manipulation and electric muscle stimulation.

Healthy Eating

What you put into your body plays a considerable role into how it performs, heals and maintains a state of health.  As we help many of our patients with the complete chiropractic and rehabilitative services we provide at Bezak Chiropractic, we also stress the importance of healthy eating and how it factors into your health, wellness, longevity and ability. While fad foods and diets may come and go, healthy eating always involves balance of calories and activities, plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables and natural protein, along with a balance of vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients.  We also stress the importance of staying fully hydrated no matter what you do.
