Voice For Health – Bad Vibes

Dr. FreedmanProlonged exposure to vibrations emitted by hand tools can give rise to a condition known as Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS). Early symptoms usually include pain, tingling, numbness, and increased sensitivity to cold, eventually followed by impaired sensibility and limited dexterity. Smokers and people who work in cold temperatures may be particularly vulnerable to this condition, which stems from arterial constriction and neurological damage. Research shows that, as the arteries in the hand are subjected to prolonged vibration, they become constricted, which may in turn starve nerves. At some point, it’s possible the numbness caused by the vibration could lead to permanent damage. With this in mind, workers and hobbyists should have their symptoms checked out as soon as they appear.

P.S. The sensation of tingling, numbness, and/or muscle weakness in any part of the body often stems from a nerve-related problem that the chiropractor can diagnose and treat.
