Physical Therapy and Tingling
There a number of physical therapy treatments offered at Monmouth Pain and Rehab that are helpful for patients with the types of disorders that cause tingling. Some of these might include:
• Spinal Decompression: By providing traction to relieve pressure on the nerves, inflammation and compression can be reduced. In cases where tingling is caused by bulged or herniated discs, Spinal Decompression often produces a vacuum-like effect in which the herniated disc material is pulled back into the damaged disc in order for the healing process to begin.
• Low Level Laser Therapy: This therapy speeds up cellular production for faster healing; it can also help to prevent the formation of scar tissue.
• Therapeutic Exercise: When used under the careful supervision of a physical therapist, exercise can be a useful tool in restoring mobility that is often lost due to arthritis, herniated discs, or sciatica (all of which may cause tingling). PowerPlate technology may be used to enhance therapeutic exercise.
Other helpful physical therapy practices include the use of heat and cold therapies, ultrasound, and massage therapy.
Acupuncture for Tingling Sensation
Acupuncture is well-known for its relaxing and pain-relieving effects. This ancient Chinese medical technique is based on the idea that all disorder in the body is caused by unbalanced ‘Qi’ or ‘life force.’ By bringing the body back into its natural harmonious state, symptoms such as numbness or tingling can be addressed.
Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation provides New Jersey Certified Acupuncturists to ensure that patients with tingling are receiving the best possible care.
Chiropractic Care for Tingling Sensation
Chiropractic care is based on the idea that the central nervous system (the brain, spinal cord, and nerves) is responsible for every function of the human body. When the spine is misaligned for any reason, nerves can become compressed or damaged. This can lead to pain, tingling, and numbness.
