Tingling & Hand Numbness

Numbness & Tingling

Numbness in any portion of the hand or in specific fingers, followed by a tingling sensation and sharp pain traveling through the hands can occur as a result of various underlying conditions. Many people report symptoms suggesting the development of carpal tunnel syndrome but, although diagnosis might indicate the cause for the condition, sometimes a diagnosis could point to the incorrect root of the problem.

The median nerve and various other tendons travel from the forearm to the hand through a small indentation in the wrist known as the carpal tunnel. The role of the median nerve is to provide movement and feeling in the thumb and first three fingers, excluding the smallest finger in the hand. When an individual begins experiencing the associated symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, such as tingling, numbness, weakness, or pain in the fingers or hand, these could be the result to an impingement of the median nerve at the carpal tunnel, generally caused by irritation on the nerves of the wrist.

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Although many people could experience numbness in their fingers, the compression could be occurring at another region within the body. Regardless of the cause of your symptoms, if you�re experienced numbness in the hands and fingers, you should consider seeking chiropractic care.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition caused by an impingement of the median nerve found at the wrist, usually causing symptoms of hand and finger numbness, tingling sensations, weakness, and pain. But, occasionally, the symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by complications to the spine, generally the cervical spine.
