Possible Trapped Nerve

Acute upper arm pain, numbness with pins and needles. Upper back pain. This has more than likely stemmed from an gym injury/ poor posture from sitting at desk during lockdown ( more than usual). I have no strength in my left side from this injury- right is not affected. Thoughts? Many thanks Mike

Hi Mike,

Numbness and pins^ needles usually indicate an irritated nerve. Combined with the upper back pain it suggests a nerve irritation in your neck.

You need to be properly examined so that you can get a diagnosis and correctly applied treatment.

I (obviously) suggest that you see your nearest chiropractor as that’s exactly the kind of thing that we treat.

If we are your closest then please give us a ring on 2083015859.
