There are many things that can cause numbness in your fingers and hands. If you have been experiencing numbness in your hands over a prolonged period of time, then it is crucial that you seek medical attention because it can become permanent if it is not dealt with.
Some of the causes that can lead to numbness in your hands include the following:
- Hand injury such as the severing of a nerve in your hand,
- Nerve compression in your hand,
- A spinal problem,
- Multiple sclerosis,
- Raynaud syndrome, where the arteries in the fingers are narrowed,
- Diabetic neuropathy, where you aren’t getting enough blood flow to your extremities,
- Problems with blood vessels,
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome,
- Problems with fibrous tissue,
- Overuse, and
- It can even be part of the natural process of aging.
The specialists at the Head and Neck Centers of Excellence have treated many patients who experience numbness in their hands. The most common cause is pressure on the discs in the spine or neck. Luckily, a bulging disc can often be treated conservatively in our office. The best part is that if treated correctly, you may avoid surgery or the overuse of medications.
When you book a consultation with us, our professionals will first begin to determine the cause of the numbness or tingling in your hand. If it is determined that the source of the problem is coming from a disc, then we generally advise patients to consider the A.S. Remodeling Protocol®, which is exclusive to The Head and Neck Centers of Excellence. It offers a non-surgical, drug-free, and ultra-gentle approach to stabilizing ‘chronic’ head and neck pain, as well as tingling and numbness in the hands, fingers, and arms.
The rehabilitation protocols at The Head and Neck Centers of Excellence use postural neuro-movements, physiotherapy, exercises, and iTrac therapy. The iTrac is a modern and effective seated therapy device designed for restoring the cervical curve and reducing forward head posture. Contact us to treat the numbness in your hands today.
