Numbness, Tingling, Shooting, Stabbing or Burning Pain
Numbness, tingling, shooting, stabbing or burning pain are prevalent symptoms for conditions that involve nerve injury or lesions.
These symptoms can occur in various body areas, often indicating a lesion along the nerve pathway. You may also have other symptoms like weakness or pins and needles. We can track the radiation path of the nerve using dermatomes, which are areas of parts of the body that are innervated by a specific nerve, such as your sciatic nerve. We can also assess muscle weakness or reflexes to determine which nerve has been affected.
Chiropractors are qualified to assess, diagnose and treat neuromusculoskeletal conditions and, through various manual therapies, can alleviate symptoms associated with nerve inflammation or injury specific to your situation. During an initial consultation, the chiropractor will assess the cause and severity of your symptoms using your clinical history and the tests mentioned above. Treatment may include adjustments, massage, trigger point therapy and exercises, among lifestyle guidance and recommendations.
If you suffer from numbness, tingling, shooting, stabbing or burning pain, it is essential to seek medical guidance from a qualified professional, such as a chiropractor, so that you can receive the best advice and treatment for your condition.
