Numbness in Arms
Numbness in arms is an issue that can result from a number of different problems. At Better Health Chiropractic, Dr. Alex Eingorn has significant experience not only diagnosing issues related to pain, numbness, and tingling, but he also has the tools and skills necessary to treat a number of problems that are due to musculoskeletal issues.
There is a myriad of possible causes for neck pain and numbness that range from animal bites to a pinched nerve. Some of the most common causes include:
poor posture, pressure caused by tumors and scar tissue, nerve injury or damage, poor blood circulation, vitamin deficiencies, certain medications, and disc herniations
Dr. Eingorn is very familiar with many of the different reasons for numbness, and he pays close attention to the symptoms and issues that his patients report so that he can better determine what the cause of the numbness might be. In many cases, he finds that numbness is due to a disc herniation, a problem that he is highly experienced at treating in his NYC office. When a disc becomes herniated, the inner fluid of the disc leaks out and puts pressure on the surrounding nerves. When this occurs, the pain can radiate from the affected vertebrae to the shoulders, hands, legs, and arms. This can lead to both mild to severe pain as well as numbness and tingling.
When a herniation occurs, the real solution isn’t to pop painkillers, although there are many individuals who find this temporary solution tempting. Instead, it’s imperative to seek out the care and expertise of a chiropractor like Dr. Eingorn who is able to offer chiropractic adjustments and manipulation as well as exercise in order to successfully treat the herniation itself.

At your initial consultation, Dr. Eingorn will conduct a thorough examination in order to better understand your symptoms and your medical history as well as your immediate needs. From vital signs to the range of motion, he will take note of both the physical as well as the environmental factors that may be contributing to your discomfort and numbness. Typically, the examination is all that is needed to reach an accurate diagnosis. However, in some cases, he will also use an MRI in order to determine the root cause of your neck pain or numbness.
If he determines that the problem is due to an issue in the cervical spine, he will begin to discuss your treatment options with you. His decompression and manual adjustment services are top-notch and incorporate the use of a state-of-the-art tool, the DRX9000. This computerized device is able to target the specific vertebrae and use a gentle motion to push and pull the spine so as to release pressure and improve a patient’s range of motion.
