Hand Goes Numb

Hi ,
I have been running for the past 5 years and have a problem with my right hand going numb about 20 minutes into my run. My hands are both in a relaxed position during my run. I try shaking it out but that does not help. The only thing that helps is if I walk for a few minutes and then start back up. It is very frustrating.
I have gone to the chiropractor and it goes away for a little while and then comes back. It is always only in my right hand. Has anyone else ever had this problem ? I do not have this problem at any other time only when I run.
Any help would be appreciated!!

Re: Hand Goes Numb

I have had that before. I think it is because the muscles of the right shoulder and upper back are tight, so when you get your heart rate going, circulation is poor. Maybe if you warmed up by doing some things to get the back and shoulders loose, it would help? Just my opinion though.
