That Tingling in Your Feet

We’ve all had a foot or hand fall asleep. Maybe we were sleeping at a bad angle and awoke with an arm that was limp or tingling.

Taking the Pressure Off

Nerves need their space. To properly get the electrical signals through, the nerves need room. But in some places, such as our wrists and where nerves are exiting the spinal canal, things can get a little tight.

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

We’ve all heard of carpal tunnel syndrome. Many of us have even heard of the less-famous cubital tunnel syndrome.

Nerve Injuries and Restoring Function

The body’s peripheral nerves are the links between our brain and the spinal cord and the rest of the body. Unfortunately, our peripheral nerves are fragile and can easily be damaged by trauma or continued compression.
