Left leg. Right leg. Sciatic leg
pain will affect either leg
(and sometimes both). Fort Wayne chiropractic care at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
helps alleviate leg pain and focuses on
the spinal source of the sciatica at the same time. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic leads
Fort Wayne 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 documents this differeence.
Bearing this in mind, it is not surprising that there are more people with longer left legs (53%) than right
legs (39%). Incredibly, just 8% of people have equal
leg lengths. (1) How does that influence
which leg will have radiculopathy? 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 experience left leg pain. Another curious point: hip pain often occurs
on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg and 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
Fort Wayne chiropractor can measure a short leg pretty
simply by checking 3 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 Fort Wayne
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 reported on 75 cases of ruptured
lumbar disc herniation. Forty-six of the 75 cases experienced
leg pain radiculopathy: 46 cases on the left and 29 on
the right. (Makes sense now, yes?)
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) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic provides relieving
non-surgical care of Fort Wayne leg pain and back pain.
RELIEF FOR Fort Wayne LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN
And then remember the new paper regarding
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) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
is here for those back pain and leg pain patients seeking fewer back and leg pain days and those who would like to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
