Numbness and Tingling
Veronica is a vibrant, kind young woman with exciting dreams for her future. For months Veronica was suffering from acute pain in her upper back, shoulders, and neck. The pain was so severe that her hand began to become numb each and every day, causing activities of daily living to be challenging and frustrating.
Veronica’s condition finally drove her to seek medical treatment in hopes of reducing her pain and improving her quality of life. She went to her primary care physician who told her that she most likely had carpal tunnel and referred her to a specialist. She was then diagnosed with loose joints and was given exercises to perform. Sadly, the exercises did not help Veronica and even made her condition much worse. She expressed to the specialist that she felt as though the pain was stemming from her shoulder and neck area, but they continued treating Veronica’s numbing pain in her wrist. Veronica turned to medication in an attempt to control her pain, but she was not content.
Upon meeting Dr. Babin at Via Vitae Chiropractic, Veronica decided to try upper cervical chiropractic care in desperate hope of reducing her pain and numbness. After only a few visits, Veronica started reporting a significant relief from her pain and discomfort. “After a couple of weeks, I no longer experienced numbness in my hand,” Veronica exclaimed. She was surprised at the extent of symptoms that upper cervical chiropractic care can reduce and sometimes even eliminate! “I feel like my overall health has improved. I have better posture and it is easier to lift and carry things, as well as exercise. I can exercise longer because I no longer have pain or numbness.” Carpal tunnel syndrome is a commonly misdiagnosed condition and many people suffer from the same symptoms as Veronica, believing that they have to cope with this condition. However like Veronica, many of these people could truly benefit from upper cervical chiropractic care and may see pain relief through this natural healing method. Veronica says she would highly recommend seeking chiropractic care with Via Vitae Chiropractic. “The staff is very nice, helpful, and great with children. They do everything they can to help their practice members feel comfortable and to fix their health concerns.”
