Numbness in the legs can be a scary situation, particularly if you think you are suffering from any other common health issues. Our Midtown chiropractor at Balanced Health Medical may help to address this issue and to ensure you aren't suffering from a serious problem.
Symptoms of Severe Leg Numbness
Occasional leg numbness isn't a big deal, but more persistent numbness may be a serious issue. A few of the most common symptoms of problematic numbness include:
- Tingling in the legs
- A burning sensation that spreads
- Tickling without a reason
- Itching that won't go away
- A feeling of crawling under your skin
Common Issues That Can Cause Numb Legs
There are many problems that vary in severity that may cause numb legs. Just a few of these common problems include:
- Poor Posture – Sometimes, bad posture can cause temporary numbing by briefly reducing the blood flow to your legs.
- Static Lifestyle – Sitting for too long with crossed legs or knees may cause your legs to feel numb for a short time.
- Standing Too Long – Excessive standing can make your legs numb by cutting off your blood flow for a brief period.
- Injuries – Getting injured in various parts of the body, particularly from your waist down, can cause leg numbness.
Other issues, such as diabetes, alcohol use, lower back problems, tarsal tunnel syndrome, peripheral artery disease, and even abnormal growths can cause numbness in the legs. However, there are more serious issues that could cause this problem. Thankfully, even these more serious issues can be managed by high-quality and precise chiropractic care by our trained specialists.
