Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Manahawkin Leg Pain Right or Left

Left leg. Right leg. Leg pain (aka sciatica) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Manahawkin chiropractic care at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center helps reduce leg pain and addresses the spinal source of the sciatica at the same time. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center guides Manahawkin 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? Yes! 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 documents this differeence. 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 owing 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 have leg pain on the left side. 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% occurs on the long leg side and 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Manahawkin 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 stated that there is a solid relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your Manahawkin chiropractor to find 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 leg pain radiculopathy: 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 noted. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center delivers relieving non-surgical care of Manahawkin leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Manahawkin LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then recall the recent paper regarding the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care decreases the number of days of pain for acute back pain episodes and raises the length of pain-free periods between recurrent back pain episodes of persistent back pain. (6) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients wanting fewer days with back and leg pain and those who want to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
