Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Paramus Leg Pain Right or Left

Left leg. Right leg. Sciatica (aka leg pain) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Paramus chiropractic care at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center helps decrease leg pain and addresses the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center guides Paramus 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 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. Bearing 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 sciatic leg pain? Discs will bulge into the concavity of the curve due to a range 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 and 11.1% short leg. Sciatica is the same: 78.5% arises on the long leg side versus 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Paramus chiropractor can measure 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. (4) Trust your Paramus chiropractor to find 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 examined 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 follow-up after non-surgical treatment, a “reabsorption” phenomenon was found. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center provides relieving non-surgical care of Paramus leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Paramus LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then recall the recent paper regarding the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care reduces the number of painful days for acute back pain episodes and increases the length of pain-free times between back pain episodes in patients with recurrent and persistent back pain. (6) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is here for those back pain and leg pain patients seeking fewer days with back and leg pain and those who would like to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
