Numbness & Tingling Surgery at SPINE/RX
What Is Numbness & Tingling?
Numbness and tingling in the arms or legs often indicates that there is damage to nerves, that travel from the spine to the extremities. A number of spinal conditions can cause nerve damage and the numbness and tingling that results. Occasionally, numbness and tingling can be accompanied by muscle weakness which is a more serious concern. See your doctor if you experience numbness and tingling or weakness in the arms or legs beyond several days.
How Is Numbness & Tingling Treated?
Numbness and tingling of a spinal origin is most typically treated with either one or a combination of the following: rest, medication, physical therapy, chiropractic treatment, injections or surgery.
When Is Surgery Recommended for Numbness & Tingling?
Surgery may be recommended for numbness and tingling if it does not improve through initial treatment methods, or if you’re experiencing any of the following serious symptoms: severe or worsening pain, muscle weakness in the arms or legs, or bowel or bladder dysfunction. Surgery may also be recommended if diagnostic tests detect damage to the spinal cord or nerve roots, or if spine surgeons anticipate any significant risk of future deterioration.
Living with spinal-related numbness and tingling can be uncomfortable, and may cause you to miss out on the activities you love. If medication or therapy fail to relieve numbness or tingling, spine surgery may provide the relief you need to live the life you desire.
