Have you ever woken up with tingling in your fingers? Often this is a sign that there are misalignments in the upper back and neck. These misalignments put pressure on the nerves that travel from your spine down to your fingers. The first sign of compression on the nerves is often tingling in the fingers.
Chiropractors are trained to detect and correct these misalignments in the spine. By gently adjusting the spine, we take pressure off of the joints in your body, allowing the nervous system to communicate easier.
Commonly I find that tingling in the fingers is due to a misalignment of the spine in the upper back or neck. I have also found that some patients have misalignments in their elbows and wrists as well. It is important to get a thorough exam by a Chiropractor to see if Chiropractic can help you!
How many visits will it take?
Each patient is different but in most simple cases, you will notice a significant difference in 3 - 6 visits. I have even seen patients have instantaneous improvement the moment they stand up after their adjustment.
Chiropractors have helped many patients with tingling and numbness in their fingers. It is a drug free approach that gets to the source of the problem!
Better Health Is Only a Phone Call Away!

After just one session of Acupuncture and a Chiropractic Adjustment my pain level immediately began to reside and I had a renewed sense of hope. I really could not believe it. Dr. Kristine had already started giving me back my life.
You did it again! I feel like a million bucks! I truly feel like I get my "money's worth" when you treat me. Not only do you treat the problem at hand but you go the extra mile to do some preventative work.
Dr. Baker is my miracle. Her caring ways and knowledgeable hands have helped me when no one else would. When I moved away from the area, I tried another acupuncturist and did not get as good results as with Dr. Baker. She has changed my life and I thank God every day that I met her and that she cared enough to help when no one else would.
I remember leaving my initial appointment feeling very empowered. I didn’t feel guilty, defeated, or responsible anymore. I felt very hopeful. I truly believe that the regular acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments played a huge role in my success with getting pregnant this second time.
I feel so blessed to have been referred to Dr. Baker as I feel that she has totally improved my quality of life. I will always be grateful to my friend at church for leading me to her and I will always be grateful to her for making my life more enjoyable.
