The feeling of numbness is caused by abnormal nerve transmission, but many factors can transmit abnormal stimuli to the nerves.

The major classification of the site of the disorder is…

1. Brain disorders such as cerebral infarction, brain tumour, multiple sclerosis, trigeminal neuralgia, etc.

2. Spinal cord and spinal nerve roots: spinal canal stenosis, herniated disc, posterior longitudinal ligament sclerosis, myelitis, multiple sclerosis, etc.

3. Peripheral neuropathy: 

(Single nerve disorder) Carpal tunnel syndrome, elbow tunnel syndrome, tarsal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, etc.

(Multiple mononeuropathies) Vasculitis, collagen disease, etc.

(polyneuropathy) diabetes mellitus, infectious disease, neoplastic disease, uremia, drug-induced, etc.

In addition to the above, various other symptoms can cause numbness. Chiropractic treatment for symptom relief targets spinal neuropathies (No nucleus pulposus protrusion herniation, etc.) and peripheral neuropathies (Single nerve disorders such as pisiform muscle syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.).
