Pins and Needles Physiotherapy Singapore

Pins and Needles (medically termed as paraesthesia) refers to uncomfortable tingling or prickling sensation experienced, usually felt in the hands or feet but can also affect any part of the body.

The affected area is sometimes said/seems to have ‘fallen asleep’.

A common cause of pins and needles is leaning or lying awkwardly on a limb, which either compresses the nerves or decreases the blood supply to the local area and for this condition, changing position usually and quickly restores normal feeling.

Any numbness is slowly replaced by the tingling and prickling sensation, as the nerves start sending messages again to the brain and spinal cord. Sometimes, pins and needles are caused by nerve damage or certain condiitons of the central nervous system.

Pins and Needles Physiotherapy

Pins and needles is an abnormal sensation that can happen anywhere our  body. That being said, it is often felt in our fingers, hands, feet, arms and legs.

There are few different causes for experiencing abnormal sensation, such as injury to a nerve in your neck may cause Pins and Needles anywhere along its nerve distribution down your arm or hand, whereas, an injury in the lower back region can cause the pins and needles or numbness down your legs.

Pins and Needles Physiotherapy

Well, the occasional pins and needles is a normal and common harmless event.

However, chronic pins and needles can be symptomatic of some other underlying physiotheraoy treatment depends on the cause(s) of your Pins and Needles. Our team of highly skilled Specialist Physiotherapists will examine you, carrying out a detailed assessment to determine the cause of your symptoms. Diagnosis of a nerve injury is made by taking a detailed history and carrying out a comprehensive objective examination.

A nerve pinched by bone or some other tissue will need back and neck Physiotherapy treatment to allow full nerve functioning to return back to normal. Nerve compression can be extremely uncomfortable, painful and problematic if left untreated.

That's why it is very important that you seek advice from a trained and experienced medical professional as early intervention is key to full return of function.
