Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Largo Leg Pain Right or Left

Left leg. Right leg. Leg pain (aka sciatica) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Largo chiropractic care at Hollstrom & Associates Inc helps reduce leg pain and focuses on the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Hollstrom & Associates Inc leads Largo 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. With this in mind, it is not surprising that more people have longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Incredibly, just 8% of people have equal leg lengths. (1) What role does that play in which leg will have radiculopathy? Discs will bulge into the concavity of the curve due to a variety 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 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% occurs on the long leg side versus 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Largo chiropractor can see a short leg pretty easily by checking 3 things: iliac crest, the verticality of the spine, and levelness of the posterosuperior iliac spine dimples. Researchers stated that there is a strong relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your Largo 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 reported on 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, right?) At 5 years follow-up after non-surgical treatment, a “reabsorption” phenomenon was seen. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) Hollstrom & Associates Inc provides pain easing non-surgical care of Largo leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Largo LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then remember the recent 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 periods between recurrent back pain episodes of persistent back pain. (6) Hollstrom & Associates Inc is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients wanting fewer days with back and leg pain and those who would like to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
