Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of West Palm Beach Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Sciatica (aka leg pain) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). West Palm Beach chiropractic care at Chiropractic Care helps reduce leg pain and addresses the spinal source of the sciatica at the same time. Chiropractic Care guides West Palm Beach leg pain and back pain patients to pain relief with chiropractic care.

SCIATIC LEG PAIN: Right Leg or Left Leg

You’ve heard of right-handed people and left-handed people, right? Yes! Did you know that the right leg grows longer in left-handed people and the left leg grows longer in right-handed people? Not all the time, but research has it documented in pretty high percentages. With this in mind, it’s not surprising that there are more people with longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Incredibly, just 8% of people have equal leg lengths. (1) How does that impact which leg will have sciatica? Discs will bulge into the concavity of the curve owing to a variety of issues like uneven stresses on the anulus of the disc. The concavity of the spinal curve is on the long leg side. A right-handed person with a long left leg will likely experience leg pain on the left side. Another interesting point: hip pain often occurs on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg versus 11.1% short leg. Sciatica is the same: 78.5% occurs on the long leg side versus 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your West Palm Beach chiropractor can measure a short leg pretty simply by checking 3 things: iliac crest, the verticality of the spine, and levelness of the posterosuperior iliac spine dimples. Researchers noted that there is a strong relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your West Palm Beach chiropractor to see a short leg…and take care of any related disc herniation sources of pain!

DISC HERNIATION RE-ABSORPTION WITH NON-SURGICAL CARE

A new study reported on 75 cases of ruptured lumbar disc herniation. Forty-six of the 75 cases had radiating leg pain: 46 cases on the left and 29 on the right. (Makes sense now, yes?) At 5 years post- non-surgical treatment, a “reabsorption” phenomenon was seen. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) Chiropractic Care provides relieving non-surgical care of West Palm Beach leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR West Palm Beach LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then recall the new paper regarding the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care reduces the number of days of pain for acute back pain episodes and raises the length of pain-free times between recurrent back pain episodes of persistent back pain. (6) Chiropractic Care is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients wanting fewer days with back and leg pain and those who want to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
