Do you have to avoid some things you love because of annoying, painful symptoms like numbness or tingling in your hands or feet? The most common reasons for numbness and tingling are nerve disorders. These disorders that irritate the arms and legs affect up to 20 million Americans. The most commonly diagnosed cause of numbness and tingling is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This can affect up to 14 million Americans. Unfortunately, up to 83% of Carpal Tunnel diagnoses are misdiagnosed and therefore mistreated which can lead to unnecessary surgeries. We have seen many cases in Woodbury of nerve related conditions, so we understand that they can cause a variety of symptoms that range from tolerable to full-blown pain.
People have entered our clinic in Woodbury, MN with sharp, stabbing pains that are so severe that they alter their overall quality of life. If you are suffering with sharp, stabbing, or shooting pains, then the most important first step is to determine the cause. There are many different things that could cause these symptoms such as vitamin deficiencies due to excessive alcohol consumption or poor dietary choices . Diseases such as diabetes or cancer can also cause these types of symptoms. Although this may be true, the most common thing we see is misalignment of the spine or degeneration.

We help to assess these symptoms and rule out factors to determine the correct diagnosis and a course of action to fix it.
