Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Auburn Leg Pain Right or Left

Right leg. Left leg. Sciatica (aka leg pain) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Auburn chiropractic care at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. helps decrease leg pain and addresses the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. leads Auburn 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? Of course, you have! 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 documents this differeence. With this in mind, it is not surprising that there are more people with longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Incredibly, just 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 due 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 experience leg pain on the left side. Another interesting point: hip pain often arises 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 and 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Auburn chiropractor can measure 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 wrote that there is a strong relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your Auburn chiropractor to see a short leg…and address any related disc herniation sources 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 leg pain radiculopathy: 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) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. provides relieving non-surgical care of Auburn leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Auburn LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then recall the recent paper about the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care reduces the number of painful days for 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) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is here 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.
