Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Burlington and Hamilton Leg Pain Right or Left

Left leg. Right leg. Sciatic leg pain will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care at Spinal Care Clinic helps ease leg pain and addresses the spinal source of the sciatica at the same time. Spinal Care Clinic leads Burlington and Hamilton 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, only 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 variety 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 versus 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor can see a short leg pretty easily by examining three 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 Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor to find a short leg…and take care of any related disc herniation sources of pain!

DISC HERNIATION RE-ABSORPTION WITH NON-SURGICAL CARE

A new study studied 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 follow-up after non-surgical treatment, a “reabsorption” phenomenon was noted. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) Spinal Care Clinic provides pain easing non-surgical care of Burlington and Hamilton leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Burlington and Hamilton LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

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