I have a numbness in my thigh, can a Chiropractor help?
I think it may have been caused by a desk job I had for a couple of years. I had a thick wallet and kind of leaned more to one side, and over the past few months my thigh has been getting very numb/tingley when I sit and lay in certain positions. Even a small area of the skin feels a little bit different to the touch. It feels like it's asleep, but often stops when I stand. Could this be fixed by seeing a chiro?

Wow I experience the same symptoms and went to my doctor, he said that it is due to lack of exercise and emphasized that people who work office jobs usually get it! I started going to the gym and it worked. I mean it took about a few weeks but since October I haven't felt that numbness again.

Find a good seat cushion for your chair. Be sure that it has some substance and softness to it and that will relieve the numbness.

It could be caused from a pinched nerve and a chiropractor can certainly help. Find one that does mainly bone manipulation, popping. I sit a lot at my job as tend to get the same problem, can hardly wait to get to my doctor for an adjustment. Feels so good afterward that I often wonder why I have waited for the pain... More
