Left leg. Right leg. Sciatica (aka leg pain) will affect either leg
(and sometimes both). Fernandina Beach chiropractic care at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic
helps alleviate leg pain and addresses
the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic leads
Fernandina Beach 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 right
leg grows longer in left-handed people and the left leg grows longer in
right-handed people? Not all the time, but
research has it documented in pretty high percentages.
With this in mind, it’s not surprising that more
people have longer left legs (53%) than right
legs (39%). Incredibly, only 8% of people have equal
leg lengths. (1) What role does that play in
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 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 left leg pain. Another interesting point: hip pain often arises
on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg vs 11.1% short leg.
Sciatica, too: 78.5% happens on the long
leg side versus 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your
Fernandina Beach chiropractor can measure 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 Fernandina Beach
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 reported on 75 cases of ruptured
lumbar disc herniation. Forty-six 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 post- non-surgical treatment, a
“reabsorption” phenomenon was found. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption
was 73.24%. (5) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic provides pain easing
non-surgical care of Fernandina Beach leg pain and back pain.
RELIEF FOR Fernandina Beach LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN
And then remember the new paper about
the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care reduces
the number of days of pain in 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic
is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients seeking fewer back and leg pain days and those who want to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
