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 is 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 periods
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.
