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 see 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.
