Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Montreal Leg Pain Right or Left

Left leg. Right leg. Leg pain (aka sciatica) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Montreal chiropractic care at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic helps alleviate leg pain and addresses the spinal source of the sciatica at the same time. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic leads Montreal 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? Yes! 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. 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 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, too: 78.5% occurs on the long leg side versus 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Montreal chiropractor can see 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 solid relationship between visual and xray measurements. (4) Trust your Montreal 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 studied 75 cases of ruptured lumbar disc herniation. Forty-six of the 75 cases had radiating leg pain: 46 cases on the left and 29 on the right. (Makes sense now, yes?) At 5 years post- non-surgical treatment, a “reabsorption” phenomenon was noted. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic provides pain easing non-surgical care of Montreal leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Montreal LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then recall the new paper about 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is here for those back pain and leg pain patients looking for fewer days with back and leg pain and those who want to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
