Numbness and tingling are abnormal sensations that are often associated with conditions related to the irritation and/or compression of the nerve roots. These conditions include disc injuries, arthritis, spinal stenosis, sciatica, trauma, or tendonitis.
Numbness and tingling are often experienced by those suffering from lower back pain. For example, a herniated disc in the lumbar spine (lower back) may cause numbness in the legs and feet. This same injury in the neck might lead to numbness in the arms or hands.
In order to relieve the inflammation that may be causing these sensations, Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation provides Epidural Steroid Injections alongside conservative treatment options such as physical therapy, chiropractic, and acupuncture.
For numbness and tingling, the practitioners at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation use Electrodiagnostic Nerve testing (in conjunction with other diagnostic tools) to determine the exact cause of symptoms. Patients with numbness and/or tingling may be suffering from the complications of diabetes or vascular conditions; it’s important to obtain the type of comprehensive diagnosis offered in our NJ pain management office in order to determine the best treatment options possible.
