Patients often come to us with symptoms in their arms and legs. This can range from pins and needles, cold, wet and numbness to pain. What causes these strange feelings?
If the spine causes pressure on a nerve then this can cause referred symptoms like those above. Chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat problems of the spine that may be causing these symptoms.
Here is a recent testimonial from a patient who presented with a feeling of ‘cold/wet’ in his foot, he had no pain;
“I had problems over a number of years with a cold/wet feeling in my left foot. Numerous tests with my doctor failed to identify the problem and I was on the verge of having to complete neurological examinations when I decided to visit Richard. Richards practice is known to me as he cured a back problem my step daughter had and has also resolved problems several of my friends have had in relation to back and neck problems. An XRAY identified a trapped nerve and following a course of treatment with Richard the problem I had been suffering from and which the NHS could not identify was cured. I would strongly recommend anyone having back, neck or other associated problems first have an examination by Richard to see if the problem can be identified and resolved. Chiropractors have the specialist training and experience to carry this out an early diagnosis will prevent the problems from developing."
If you know anybody experiencing symptoms like this a chiropractor may be able to help.
