Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of West Palm Beach Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Sciatic leg pain will affect either leg (and sometimes both). West Palm Beach chiropractic care at Moses Chiropractic helps ease leg pain and focuses on the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Moses Chiropractic leads West Palm 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 documents this differeence. With 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) 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 experience left leg pain. Another interesting point: hip pain often occurs on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg versus 11.1% short leg. Sciatica is the same: 78.5% happens on the long leg side versus 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your West Palm Beach chiropractor can see a short leg pretty simply by examining three things: iliac crest, the verticality of the spine, and levelness of the posterosuperior iliac spine dimples. Researchers wrote that there is a solid relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your West Palm Beach chiropractor to see 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 reported on 75 cases of ruptured lumbar disc herniation. 46 of the 75 cases experienced leg pain radiculopathy: 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) Moses Chiropractic provides pain easing non-surgical care of West Palm Beach leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR West Palm Beach LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then remember 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 back pain episodes in patients with recurrent and persistent back pain. (6) Moses Chiropractic is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients seeking fewer days with back and leg pain and those who want to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
