Numbing as a result of shingles

I have numbing in my legs, feet, private area and lower back due to shingles. Can chiropractic work help with this?

Alas, probably not. Where you come for treatment because of the symptoms, BEFORE THE SHINGLES LESIONS APPEAR, I have had great success with shingles. But now, after the fact, I'm not sure.

Is it down both legs? That's unusual. It's not impossible that there's something else going on as well.

If in doubt, ask your chiropractor to examine you to determine if there are spinal or sacroiliac subluxations occuring simultaneously.

Antibodies from someone previously infected often help. Really, at this stage it's a medical problem. Sorry not to be more positive.
