Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Brooks Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Leg pain (aka sciatica) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Brooks chiropractic care at Soft Health and Healing Clinic helps alleviate leg pain and addresses the spinal source of the sciatica at the same time. Soft Health and Healing Clinic leads Brooks 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’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 due 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 versus 11.1% short leg. Sciatica, too: 78.5% happens on the long leg side versus 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Brooks chiropractor can see a short leg pretty simply by checking 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 Brooks chiropractor to find a short leg…and address 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 leg pain radiculopathy: 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 seen. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) Soft Health and Healing Clinic delivers pain easing non-surgical care of Brooks leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Brooks LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then recall the new paper regarding the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care decreases the number of painful days for acute back pain episodes and raises the length of pain-free periods between recurrent back pain episodes of persistent back pain. (6) Soft Health and Healing Clinic is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients seeking fewer back and leg pain days and those who want to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
