Are you experiencing numbness or tingling in your arms and hands or legs and feet? This is typically a sign of spinal problems.
Your nervous system controls every tissue, organ and system in your body. It tells your heart to beat, your lungs to breathe, and your digestive system to digest that meal you just ate. It is also responsible for sensing the world around you. Nerve signals begin in your brain and travel down through your brainstem and spinal cord, then out through the peripheral nerves to the rest of your body. Your spine is designed to protect these delicate nerve structures.
Sometimes due to injuries, repetitive stresses or years of poor posture, you can develop misalignment of the bones in your spine. This is referred to as a subluxation and can compress, stretch or otherwise irritate the nerves that your spine is designed to protect.
At Trinity Chiropractic, we offer a drug-free non-surgical solution for your numbness and tingling. Dr. David Iszler takes a unique approach to helping you with your condition. When you meet with Dr. Iszler, he will do an in-depth consultation to find out what is contributing to your numbness or tingling. He will then do a chiropractic examination and take x-rays, if needed, to get to the cause. He will go over his findings in detail so you understand where your numbness or tingling is coming from. He will go over his recommended action plan to correct the underlying problem causing your numbness or tingling so you can get back to doing the things you love to do. If yours is not a chiropractic case, he will help you get to the right place for your condition.
Dr. Iszler is Advanced Proficiency Certified in the newest technique in chiropractic, Torque Release Technique (TRT). Using this technique, he will adjust your spine and correct the misalignments without the uncomfortable twisting and popping that most people associate with chiropractic adjustments. Depending on your condition and situation, other treatment options are available to assist in correcting the underlying cause of your numbness or tingling. Electrical stimulation can help to decrease muscle tension. Spinal decompression is effective at decompressing the discs, joints and nerves in your low back as well as improving mobility. Because we want to correct your underlying condition rather than just chasing your symptoms, we also incorporate spinal and postural rehabilitation into your care. This addresses the structures that support your spine to speed your healing process along and make these changes more permanent.
Call us today to schedule your consultation so you can begin your relief from your numbness and tingling and get back to doing the things you love to do.
