Someone close to me has bone spurs in their neck, often causing numbing in their hand - likely caused by looking down at phone/laptop for years. They went to several doctors that medically claim it’s not a big deal, but random hand numbness on a daily basis is pretty terrifying.
Does anyone have any recommendations of where to go? So far, they tried western-style doctor at a bigger [public] hospital similar to NTU hospital; then also a chiropractor and acupuncture. Hospital found the problem and said either “surgery or stretches”, chiropractor said once per 2 weeks, acupuncture said every day for a month then lighten the load. So far, acupuncture seems to have the best effect.
Soon, they will try some new therapy that involves an injection to the area to potentially encourage self-healing that seems pretty neat.
Any other suggestions? Anyone else have this issue?
