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 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 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 would like to live life with longer periods without leg and back pain.
