When a nerve is being irritated, or compressed, then the normal flow of nerve impulses will be compromised. This can result in muscular weakness, pins and needles, burning sensation or numbness of the skin. Each nerve supplies specific muscle, reflex and area of the skin.
Your chiropractor can use this information to pinpoint the exact cause and origin of your problem and then put together a treatment plan to address your individual needs. If it is outside of their scope they will help refer you to the right person.
