Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Murfreesboro Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Leg pain (aka sciatica) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Murfreesboro chiropractic care at Most Chiropractic Clinic helps alleviate leg pain and addresses the spinal source of the sciatica at the same time. Most Chiropractic Clinic leads Murfreesboro leg pain and back pain patients to pain relief with chiropractic care.

SCIATIC LEG PAIN: Right Leg or Left Leg

You’ve heard of right-handed people and left-handed people, right? Sure! 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’s 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 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 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% occurs on the long leg side vs 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Murfreesboro chiropractor can see 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 Murfreesboro chiropractor to see a short leg…and address 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. 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) Most Chiropractic Clinic provides pain easing non-surgical care of Murfreesboro leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Murfreesboro 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 for acute back pain episodes and increases the length of pain-free times between recurrent back pain episodes of persistent back pain. (6) Most Chiropractic Clinic is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients wanting fewer back and leg pain days and those who want to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
