There are numerous places in the body your nerves can become restricted. One common misunderstanding of Chiropractic care is assuming it is all about the spine. Chiropractors are really treating the nervous system – the core of this system being the spine. But by properly examining your symptoms, and by conducting a full exam of the causes, a Chiropractor can more accurately determine where in your nervous system a blockage is occurring – whether in the spine, or along the ribs, upper arm, elbow or wrist, or in the legs from the hips down to the heels.
If you’re experiencing tingling, a chiropractor is your best bet to examine the entire length of the affected limb and determine exactly the cause of your symptoms. There are 8 different bones in the wrist alone – a qualified practitioner will examine all 8 to ensure they are functioning normally. They’ll also examine the entire length of the arm or leg and determine that there are no abnormalities located “further up stream”.
