Numbness is a loss of sensation in some part of your body. It may be associated with other sensation such as tingling or burning. Numbness caused by a stroke or diabetes nephropathy cannot be treated by A-IMS®. Numbness and tingling sensation in hands and feet after a spine trauma such as auto accident, work injury and slip-and-fall accidents can be treated effectively with A-IMS® procedure at Bergen Pain & Rehab.
When muscles are tight and compress on a nerve or several nerves, numbness and/or tingling sensations occur in the area of the body where the nerve inervates. This type of numbness can be corrected by relaxing the tight muscle(s) where the compression occurs. A-IMS® is very effective in relaxing the muscles and thus eliminating the numbness - usually with a few treatments.
“I was never pain free since my auto accident five years ago until I got the A-IMS treatment. I had many months of physical therapy and 3 epidurals with no help. My main problem was severe pain, shooting pain in the left leg and numbness in the left foot. Dr Lee’s treatment changed my life. Her treatment was a lifesaver. My treatment was once a month and I paid the money for my [A-IMS] treatment.
"I was involved in a car accident January 15, 2001. Since the accident I have hadnumbness in my legs, as well as pain and a tingling sensation when lying down. The numbness had gotten so bad that my legs would give out and I would fall on my face. I was afraid to leave my house for fear of falling and hurting myself further. I went through numerous procedures and tests and upon a final resort I went to a chiropractor. I wasn't getting better and he referred me to Dr. Lee."
"I received the [A-IMS] treatments weekly and I cannot express enough what a difference they have made in my life. The numbness is gone, I have no pain and most importantly I can sleep without the constant tingling sensation that used to keep me up at night. The [A-IMS] treatments have given me my life back."
