Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Baton Rouge Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Sciatica (aka leg pain) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Baton Rouge chiropractic care at Spine & Sports Rehab Center helps alleviate leg pain and focuses on the spinal source of the sciatica at the same time. Spine & Sports Rehab Center guides Baton Rouge 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 more people have 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 sciatic leg pain? 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 have left leg pain. 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% arises on the long leg side vs 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Baton Rouge 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 noted that there is a solid relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your Baton Rouge chiropractor to see a short leg…and address any related disc herniation causes of pain!

DISC HERNIATION RE-ABSORPTION WITH NON-SURGICAL CARE

A new study examined 75 cases of ruptured lumbar disc herniation. Forty-six of the 75 cases experienced 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 found. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%.

RELIEF FOR Baton Rouge LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then remember the new paper about the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care decreases the number of days of pain for acute back pain episodes and increases the length of pain-free times between recurrent back pain episodes of persistent back pain. (6) Spine & Sports Rehab Center is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients seeking fewer days with back and leg pain and those who would like to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
