Numbness and Tingling
Numbness and tingling, or paresthesia, is an abnormal sensation that is commonly experienced in the arms and hands or legs and feet. This can be caused by spinal problems such as disc injuries or arthritis. It can also be caused by metabolic conditions such as diabetes or blockage to blood flow.
At Advanced Healthcare our team of doctors and healthcare professionals evaluate your condition using advanced testing procedures to uncover the true cause of the problem. We perform imaging studies such as x-rays or an MRI to find spinal problems. We also use NCV/EMG (nerve conduction velocity and electromyography testing) to confirm it is a neuropathy or pinching of the nerves. For blood flow problems we use Doppler Vascular testing to find potential blood clots and other blood flow blockages. Once the cause is ascertained, the best treatments available are recommended to provide quick results.
