Waking up with pins & needles in the hands is not uncommon and the condition often disappears within an hour or so. For some however, the pins & needles sensation is persistent, can come and go at other times of the day and is sometimes accompanied by other symptoms such as dizziness, loss of balance and even temporary blackouts.
This can be very worrying for anyone experiencing this problem and diagnosis can be difficult with the patient hearing differing answers from different practitioners. But there is one thing that you can be absolutely sure of – something is causing the symptoms and that cause needs to be found.
This may sound obvious but when people take various prescription drugs to mask the symptoms this does little to curb the problem in the long term.
Simply put, the cause must be found and corrected.
To help find that cause we offer:
- A Private Consultation with the Doctor of Chiropractic
- A Thorough Examination including Neurological, Orthopaedic & Blood Pressure Tests
- X-Rays, if necessary
- A Verbal Report of our Findings and thorough Explanation of the X-Rays
After which you should know more about your body and the problems you are experiencing than you ever have before. Whether you go ahead with treatment as always is entirely your decision.
