Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Carrolltown Leg Pain Right or Left

Left leg. Right leg. Sciatica (aka leg pain) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Carrolltown chiropractic care at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation helps reduce leg pain and addresses the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation guides Carrolltown 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 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’s not surprising that more people have longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Amazingly, just 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 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 leg pain on the left side. Another interesting point: hip pain often occurs on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg and 11.1% short leg. Sciatica, too: 78.5% arises on the long leg side vs 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Carrolltown chiropractor can spot 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 wrote that there is a solid relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your Carrolltown chiropractor to find 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 studied 75 cases of ruptured lumbar disc herniation. Forty-six of the 75 cases experienced 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) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation delivers pain easing non-surgical care of Carrolltown leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Carrolltown LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then remember the new paper about the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care reduces the number of days of pain in acute back pain episodes and increases the length of pain-free times between recurrent back pain episodes of persistent back pain. (6) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients wanting fewer days with back and leg pain and those who would like to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
