Pain, Numbness, Cold, Tingling or Weakness

Hand PainNOTE: Because Dr. Shay is not currently in NZ due to the illness of a family member, he is unable to do hands-on services for these issues. He can help using functional medicine to find and address the global effects of inflammation, hormone disruption (adrenal), hidden infections, and underlying genetics that contribute to inflammation load that may add to the pain, numbness, cold, tingling, and/or weakness.

Pain, numbness, cold, tingling or weakness in the hands, arms, feet or other parts of the body can bring your life to a halt and is often misdiagnosed and mistreated, leading to years of pain and frustration.

My personal experience with chronic health problems from a young age, combined with my qualifications and experience as an Acupuncturist, Chiropractor and Functional Neurologist give me a unique ability to investigate, diagnose and treat the most elusive function problems.

Conditions I can help with include…

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome can cause severe pain, numbness and tingling in the arms which often becomes all consuming. Surgery is often prescribed but also often avoidable with the right treatment.

My unique blend of Chiropractic, Acupuncture and Functional Neurology skills have turned out to be an ideal combination for helping people who suffer from this debilitating affliction.

Pain or numbness in whole hand

While it is possible to have both Ulnar Neuropathy AND Median Neuropathy at the same time, whole hand problems are more likely to be caused by Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

Surgery free treatment options include acupuncture, myofascial techniques, adjusting the joints, biomechanics and reducing inflamation.
