Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Baton Rouge Leg Pain Right or Left

Left leg. Right leg. Sciatic leg pain will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Baton Rouge chiropractic care at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation helps reduce leg pain and addresses the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation leads Baton Rouge 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 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 has it documented in pretty high percentages. With this in mind, it’s 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 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 arises on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg versus 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 Baton Rouge chiropractor can measure a short leg pretty simply by checking 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 Baton Rouge 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 reported on 75 cases of ruptured lumbar disc herniation. 46 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 found. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation provides pain easing non-surgical care of Baton Rouge leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Baton Rouge LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then recall the new paper about the benefits of chiropractic maintenance care: Maintenance care reduces the number of days of pain in acute back pain episodes and increases the length of pain-free times between recurrent back pain episodes of persistent back pain. (6) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is here 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.
