Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Williamson Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Sciatic leg pain will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Williamson chiropractic care at Apple Country Chiropractic helps decrease leg pain and focuses on the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Apple Country Chiropractic guides Williamson 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? 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 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 sciatica? Discs will bulge into the concavity of the curve due 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 curious point: hip pain often occurs on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg and 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 Williamson chiropractor can spot a short leg pretty simply by examining 3 things: iliac crest, the verticality of the spine, and levelness of the posterosuperior iliac spine dimples. Researchers wrote that there is a strong relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your Williamson 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 reported on 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, right?) At 5 years follow-up after non-surgical treatment, a “reabsorption” phenomenon was noted. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) Apple Country Chiropractic provides pain easing non-surgical care of Williamson leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Williamson 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 for acute back pain episodes and raises the length of pain-free times between back pain episodes in patients with recurrent and persistent back pain. (6) Apple Country Chiropractic is here for those back pain and leg pain patients looking for fewer days with back and leg pain and those who would like to live life with fewer periods of leg and back pain.
