Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Colorado Springs Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Leg pain (aka sciatica) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Colorado Springs chiropractic care at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR helps alleviate leg pain and focuses on the spinal source of the sciatica at the same time. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR leads Colorado Springs 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? 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%). Amazingly, only 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 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 arises on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg and 11.1% short leg. Sciatica is the same: 78.5% arises on the long leg side and 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Colorado Springs chiropractor can spot 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 Colorado Springs 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 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 follow-up after non-surgical treatment, a “reabsorption” phenomenon was noted. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR provides pain easing non-surgical care of Colorado Springs leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Colorado Springs 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 in acute back pain episodes and raises the length of pain-free periods between back pain episodes in patients with recurrent and persistent back pain. (6) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients wanting fewer days with back and leg pain and those who want to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
