Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of New Roads Leg Pain Right or Left

Left leg. Right leg. Sciatica (aka leg pain) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). New Roads chiropractic care at New Roads Chiropractic Center helps ease leg pain and focuses on the spinal source of the sciatica at the same time. New Roads Chiropractic Center guides New Roads leg pain and back pain patients to pain relief with chiropractic care.

SCIATIC LEG PAIN: Right Leg or Left Leg

You have 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 documents this differeence. With this in mind, it is not surprising that more people have longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Amazingly, only 8% of people have equal leg lengths. (1) How does that impact which leg will have sciatic leg pain? Discs will bulge into the concavity of the curve owing to a range 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 left leg pain. Another curious point: hip pain often occurs on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg vs 11.1% short leg. Sciatica is the same: 78.5% arises on the long leg side and 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your New Roads chiropractor can see a short leg pretty easily by examining three 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 New Roads chiropractor to see a short leg…and address any related disc herniation causes of pain!

DISC HERNIATION RE-ABSORPTION WITH NON-SURGICAL CARE

A new study reported on 75 cases of ruptured lumbar disc herniation. 46 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 found. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) New Roads Chiropractic Center provides pain easing non-surgical care of New Roads leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR New Roads LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then remember the recent paper about the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care decreases the number of painful days in acute back pain episodes and raises the length of pain-free times between back pain episodes in patients with recurrent and persistent back pain. (6) New Roads Chiropractic Center is here for those back pain and leg pain patients seeking fewer back and leg pain days and those who would like to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
