Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Minster Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Sciatic leg pain will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Minster chiropractic care at Minster Chiropractic Center helps reduce leg pain and addresses the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Minster Chiropractic Center guides Minster 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 has it documented in pretty high percentages. With this in mind, it is 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 impact which leg will have sciatica? Discs will bulge into the concavity of the curve due to a variety 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 have leg pain on the left side. Another curious point: hip pain often arises 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 Minster chiropractor can see a short leg pretty easily by examining 3 things: iliac crest, the verticality of the spine, and levelness of the posterosuperior iliac spine dimples. Researchers stated that there is a solid relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your Minster chiropractor to find a short leg…and take care of 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) Minster Chiropractic Center delivers pain easing non-surgical care of Minster leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Minster LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then recall 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 periods between recurrent back pain episodes of persistent back pain. (6) Minster Chiropractic Center 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.
