Right leg. Left leg. Sciatic leg
pain will affect either leg
(and sometimes both). Fort Wayne chiropractic care at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc
helps decrease leg pain and focuses on
the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc guides
Fort Wayne 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.
With this in mind, it is 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 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 curious point: hip pain often arises
on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg versus 11.1% short leg.
Sciatica is the same: 78.5% arises on the long
leg side versus 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your
Fort Wayne chiropractor can see 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 stated that there is a solid
relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your Fort Wayne
chiropractor to see 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 reported on 75 cases of ruptured
lumbar disc herniation. Forty-six 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 post- non-surgical treatment, a
“reabsorption” phenomenon was seen. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption
was 73.24%. (5) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc provides relieving
non-surgical care of Fort Wayne leg pain and back pain.
RELIEF FOR Fort Wayne LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN
And then recall the recent paper regarding
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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc
is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients wanting fewer back and leg pain days and those who would like to live life with fewer periods
of leg and back pain.
