Do You Have Tingling in Your Legs and Feet?

Tingling in your legs and feet (or arms and hands) might be the sign of a back problem, not a foot problem.

Tingling in your feet might be a sign of a back problem, not a foot problem.

Nerves exiting your lower back send messages of touch, temperature, and pressure to the brain from your feet. Compression of a nerve or spinal cord can interfere with the message giving you a feeling of tingling or numbness. If tingling gets worse when you straighten your leg, it is time to get checked out.

Many times the conditions causing these symptoms can be treated conservatively.  Find out more by accessing the tabs at the top of my website above; or by calling our scheduling representatives at 813-978-9797.

As always, feel free to comment, share, etc.
