Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Manchester Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Leg pain (aka sciatica) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Manchester chiropractic care at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries helps decrease leg pain and focuses on the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries leads Manchester 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? Sure! 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 is not surprising that more people have longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Incredibly, only 8% of people have equal leg lengths. (1) How does that influence which leg will have sciatic leg pain? 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 have left leg pain. Another curious 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 vs 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Manchester 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 noted that there is a strong relationship between visual and xray measurements.

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, 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 Manchester LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN
