Numbness and Pinched Nerves in Lakeville

Numbness in Lakeville
Numbness can be attributed to a myriad of causes. Most commonly, however, there is nerve irritation or damaged somewhere along the pathway of an affecting nerve. This nerve damage can happen in many ways. For example; the nerve can become obstructed when it exits the spine resulting in damage downstream. It can also be damaged anywhere along the path of the nerve, such as in your forearm, resulting in pain in your hands.
Treatment for Numbness
The traditional treatment of numbness is to simply prescribe medication that usually blocks the way our brain perceives pain and numbness. This does nothing for the actual cause of the neuropathy. It is like taking the bulb out of your dashboard in your car that reads “low oil level”. While it does nothing for the actual cause of the light being on (low oil level) it solves the problem, right? wrong.
This is why it is crucial to figure out what the cause of your numbness actually is. Nerves pass through and next to a great number of structures in your body. If just one thing is putting abnormal pressure directly on that nerve, you will have consequences. These consequences might appear in the form of numbness.
If you experience numbness in any body part, a detailed examination at ALIGN in Lakeville would be a great step in assessing your condition.
Pinched nerves are a very common ailment. They are even more common than you think. This is because pain is one of the last sensations that is noticed. For example, you have nerve dysfunction before you have pain because that is the way our nervous system is wired with our brain. So, if you have pain from a pinched nerve, more than likely there is another damage to go along with it. Therefore, it is very important to seek treatment immediately if you suspect you have a pinched nerve.
