Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Lynchburg Leg Pain Right or Left

Left leg. Right leg. Sciatica (aka leg pain) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Lynchburg chiropractic care at Palmer Chiropractic Center helps alleviate leg pain and focuses on the spinal source of the sciatica at the same time. Palmer Chiropractic Center leads Lynchburg 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. With this in mind, it’s not surprising that there are more people with longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Incredibly, 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 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% arises on the long leg side vs 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Lynchburg chiropractor can see a short leg pretty simply 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 Lynchburg 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 examined 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, right?) 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center delivers pain easing non-surgical care of Lynchburg leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Lynchburg LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

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