Numbness in the Legs
At Better Health Chiropractic, Dr. Alex Eingorn DC has significant experience treating patients who are experiencing numbness in legs. While this problem can be due to a number of causes, it’s not uncommon for the issue to be the result of a disc herniation in the cervical spine. In fact, many of the patients that Dr. Eingorn treats come to him to determine the causes of numbness in the legs only to find the problem lies further from their legs than they might think.
There are a number of problems that can lead to numbness. These include: nerve damage and injury, lack of blood supply or poor circulation, vitamin deficiencies, pressure on the nerves due to tumors or scar tissue, poor posture, and disc herniations.
When it comes to disc herniations and issues with the cervical spine, no one can provide better guidance and treatments than Dr. Eingorn, a chiropractor who has over two decades of experience offering solutions to spinal issues and discomfort.
When a herniation occurs, the inner materials within the vertebrae bulge and leak out of the space, leading to pressure on the surrounding nerves. It is this pressure that then goes on to cause discomfort and, in this case, numbness in the surrounding areas. In order to treat this problem, Dr. Eingorn offers chiropractic adjustments and spinal manipulation that serves to realign the vertebrae and relieve pressure on the nearby nerves.
If you’re experiencing numbness in legs due to back pain, don’t wait another day; a solution exists that might be able to provide you with the relief you seek without the need for invasive procedures and problematic medications. Dr. Eingorn is committed to his patients, and he will do all he can to uncover the root cause of the pain and provide you with healing.
