Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Plainville Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Leg pain (aka sciatica) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Plainville chiropractic care at Layden Chiropractic helps reduce leg pain and addresses the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Layden Chiropractic guides Plainville 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? Of course, you have! 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 has it documented in pretty high percentages. 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) What role does that play in 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, too: 78.5% arises on the long leg side vs 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Plainville chiropractor can spot a short leg pretty simply by examining three things: iliac crest, the verticality of the spine, and levelness of the posterosuperior iliac spine dimples. Researchers wrote that there is a solid relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your Plainville 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 examined 75 cases of ruptured lumbar disc herniation. Forty-six of the 75 cases experienced leg pain radiculopathy: 46 cases on the left and 29 on the right. (Makes sense now, yes?) At 5 years follow-up after non-surgical treatment, a “reabsorption” phenomenon was found. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) Layden Chiropractic provides relieving non-surgical care of Plainville leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Plainville LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

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