Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Millville Leg Pain Right or Left

Left leg. Right leg. Leg pain (aka sciatica) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Millville chiropractic care at Wilson Family Chiropractic helps reduce leg pain and focuses on the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Wilson Family Chiropractic leads Millville 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? Yes! 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. Bearing this in mind, it is not surprising that there are more people with longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Amazingly, only 8% of people have equal leg lengths. (1) How does that impact which leg will have radiculopathy? Discs will bulge into the concavity of the curve due to a range of issues like uneven stresses on the disc’s anulus. 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 curious point: hip pain often occurs on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg versus 11.1% short leg. Sciatica, too: 78.5% occurs on the long leg side and 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Millville chiropractor can spot a short leg pretty easily by checking three things: iliac crest, the verticality of the spine, and levelness of the posterosuperior iliac spine dimples. Researchers noted that there is a solid relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your Millville chiropractor to find 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 studied 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, yes?) At 5 years post- non-surgical treatment, a “reabsorption” phenomenon was seen. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) Wilson Family Chiropractic delivers relieving non-surgical care of Millville leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Millville LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then remember the recent paper regarding the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care decreases the number of painful days for 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) Wilson Family Chiropractic is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients wanting fewer back and leg pain days and those who would like to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
