Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Fernandina Beach Leg Pain Right or Left

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.
