Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Pensacola Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Sciatic leg pain will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Pensacola chiropractic care at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center helps alleviate leg pain and focuses on the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center leads Pensacola 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? Sure! 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’s not surprising that there are more people with longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Amazingly, only 8% of people have equal leg lengths. (1) How does that influence which leg will have sciatica? Discs will bulge into the concavity of the curve due 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 have 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 is the same: 78.5% happens on the long leg side vs 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Pensacola chiropractor can spot a short leg pretty easily by checking 3 things: iliac crest, the verticality of the spine, and levelness of the posterosuperior iliac spine dimples. Researchers stated that there is a strong relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your Pensacola chiropractor to find a short leg…and address 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. 46 of the 75 cases had leg pain radiculopathy: 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center provides pain easing non-surgical care of Pensacola leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Pensacola LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then remember the new paper regarding the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care decreases the number of painful days for 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients looking for fewer days with back and leg pain and those who want to live life with fewer periods of leg and back pain.
