Does your hand “fall asleep” while using the computer? How about your foot while driving? The most common cause of this is due to tight muscles and joints in your neck or low back. The neck and low back house the nerve roots that are the base of the major nerves that run down your arms and legs. When these nerves have excess pressure put on them or if they get pinched somewhere along the length of the nerve, numbness and tingling in the extremities is often the result. If the pressure on the nerves is too much, severe pain and muscle weakness may occur.
