Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Tonawanda Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Leg pain (aka sciatica) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Tonawanda chiropractic care at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation helps alleviate leg pain and addresses the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation leads Tonawanda 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 left leg grows longer in right-handed people and the right leg grows longer in left-handed people? Not 100% of the time, but research documents this differeence. Bearing this in mind, it is not surprising that more people have longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Incredibly, just 8% of people have equal leg lengths. (1) How does that influence which leg will have radiculopathy? Discs will bulge into the concavity of the curve owing to a range of issues like uneven stresses on the disc’s anulus. 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 interesting point: hip pain often occurs on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg versus 11.1% short leg. Sciatica, too: 78.5% occurs on the long leg side vs 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Tonawanda chiropractor can spot a short leg pretty simply by checking 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 Tonawanda chiropractor to find a short leg…and address any related disc herniation causes of pain!

DISC HERNIATION RE-ABSORPTION WITH NON-SURGICAL CARE

A new study studied 75 cases of ruptured lumbar disc herniation. Forty-six of the 75 cases experienced radiating leg pain: 46 cases on the left and 29 on the right. (Makes sense now, right?) At 5 years follow-up after non-surgical treatment, a “reabsorption” phenomenon was noted. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation delivers pain easing non-surgical care of Tonawanda leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Tonawanda LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

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