QUESTION: (This is not a spam question or a homework question)
I was wondering would you please tell me: can people avoid getting pins and needles?

If they can avoid getting it, would you please explain to me in a simple way that I can understand: how can it be avoided?

Thanks

Answer
No, for most people, they cannot be avoided; that would require them either to understand the cause and identify it in themselves before onset or already to have had a movement practice and healthy diet that would preclude the condition.

The condition CAN be corrected.
