Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Sandy Springs Leg Pain Right or Left

Left leg. Right leg. Leg pain (aka sciatica) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Sandy Springs chiropractic care at Cross Chiropractic Center helps ease leg pain and addresses the spinal source of the sciatica at the same time. Cross Chiropractic Center leads Sandy Springs 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 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’s not surprising that more people have longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Incredibly, only 8% of people have equal leg lengths. (1) What role does that play in which leg will have sciatic leg pain? Discs will bulge into the concavity of the curve owing to a variety 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 arises on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg and 11.1% short leg. Sciatica is the same: 78.5% arises on the long leg side and 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Sandy Springs chiropractor can measure a short leg pretty easily by examining 3 things: iliac crest, the verticality of the spine, and levelness of the posterosuperior iliac spine dimples. Researchers noted that there is a strong relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your Sandy Springs 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 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, 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) Cross Chiropractic Center provides relieving non-surgical care of Sandy Springs leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Sandy Springs LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then remember the new paper about the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care decreases the number of days of pain in 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) Cross Chiropractic Center is here for those back pain and leg pain patients seeking fewer back and leg pain days and those who want to live life with fewer periods of leg and back pain.
