Numbness Physiotherapy Singapore

Numbness Physiotherapy Singapore

Numbness refers to the decrease of sensation in a particular part of your body or limb.

There can be many possible reasons for you to have numbness, and for the most part, it is usually caused by a pinched nerve (or compressed nerve, or pressured nerve). Once the pinching or pressure is taken off the nerve, numbness decreases instantaneously and functioning will resume.

The other reason why you may have numbness may also be caused by decreased blood flow, also caused by pressure either by swelling or bone or other tissues (such as tumors, spurs etc)

If you have an occasional event of numbness, it should be harmless and you may not need to worry about it. However, if you realize that your numbness has a certain pattern to it, and it has been present for a period of time (such as a couple of days in a row), please be advised to seek medical attention at once.

That being said, some conditions do cause numbness, especially medical conditions such as peripheral vascular disorders, such as diabetes mellitus, which can cause numbness and tingling in one’s toes and fingers, migraines etc.

Common Numbness and Nerve Problems Our Therapists Treat

Some of the more common problems caused by nerves are:

Carpal tunnel syndrome, where a nerve in your wrist gets compressed and you find that you have tingling in your thumb, index finger, middle finger and half of your ring finger. Hand therapy intervention including splinting, nerve gliding and ultrasound therapy often helps.

Sciatica, where a nerve in your back is pinched, and causing shooting or tingling pain down the back of your thigh or front of your calf. Physiotherapy intervention including computerized traction, manual therapy, heat therapy and decompression exercises often helps.

In the early stages of nerve injuries and numbness, our therapists will assess to find the core problem and the aggravating factors, and plan an intervention plan catered to your needs to help decrease the numbness.

In severe conditions that are untreated, numbness may lead to muscle dystrophy, where there is muscle wastage as the nerve supplying the muscle is impacted is chronically not supplying the electrical impulses to the affected muscles. This is what we, as therapists, want to prevent in the first place, as when a muscle has reached a stage of dystrophy, it is irreversible, though it depends on what stage of dystrophy it is at.
