Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Groton Leg Pain Right or Left

Left leg. Right leg. Sciatica (aka leg pain) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Groton chiropractic care at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office helps reduce leg pain and addresses the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office guides Groton 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 has it documented in pretty high percentages. Bearing this in mind, it’s not surprising that there are more people with longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Incredibly, only 8% of people have equal leg lengths. (1) What role does that play in which leg will have sciatica? 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 experience left leg pain. Another curious point: hip pain often arises on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg versus 11.1% short leg. Sciatica is the same: 78.5% occurs on the long leg side vs 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Groton chiropractor can measure a short leg pretty easily 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 Groton chiropractor to see a short leg…and take care of 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 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%.

RELIEF FOR Groton LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then remember the recent paper about the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care reduces the number of days of pain for acute back pain episodes and raises the length of pain-free periods between recurrent back pain episodes of persistent back pain. (6) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is ready for those back pain and leg pain patients looking for fewer days with back and leg pain and those who would like to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
