I Don’t Have Neck Pain, But My Arm And Hand Go To Sleep All The Time!
Posted Feb 10 2010 12:02pm
You can often get symptoms from a neck problem that present themselves in the hands and arms. Carpal Tunnel is a perfect example; we often see people who think they have carpal tunnel or elbow problems when in fact the problem is in the neck.
When dealing with hand or arm problems you always want to examine the source of nerve supply to that area. The hands and arms are controlled by nerves of the lower neck and upper back. The same is true for the lower back , which controls function to the legs.
A poorly aligned neck can often result in shoulder, arm, or hand pain or numbness and tingling. In fact, depending on which nerve fibers you irritate, you can get burning pain, nagging pain, numbness, or even weakness. Also, sometimes you may have neck issues as well, sometimes you won’t.
**The Bottom Line**
Whether you have an arm that’s always falling asleep or a wrist that hurts, keeping the neck in its best position will only help!
