Relieving Chiropractic Care Relief of Buffalo, NY Leg Pain Right or Left

Left leg. Right leg. Sciatica (aka leg pain) will affect either leg (and sometimes both). Buffalo, NY chiropractic care at The Novelli Wellness Center helps alleviate leg pain and addresses the spinal cause of the sciatica at the same time. The Novelli Wellness Center guides Buffalo, NY 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? 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 has it documented in pretty high percentages. Bearing this in mind, it’s not surprising that more people have longer left legs (53%) than right legs (39%). Amazingly, just 8% of people have equal leg lengths. (1) How does that impact which leg will have sciatic leg pain? Discs will bulge into the concavity of the curve owing to a range of issues like uneven stresses on the disc’s anulus. The concavity of the spinal curve is on the long leg side. A right-handed person with a long left leg will likely have leg pain on the left side. Another interesting point: hip pain often arises on the long leg side, too: 88.9% long leg vs 11.1% short leg. Sciatica, too: 78.5% arises on the long leg side versus 21.5% on the short leg side. (2,3) Your Buffalo, NY chiropractor can see 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 Buffalo, NY chiropractor to see 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. Forty-six of the 75 cases had leg pain radiculopathy: 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 found. The excellent and good rate of disc reabsorption was 73.24%. (5) The Novelli Wellness Center delivers pain easing non-surgical care of Buffalo, NY leg pain and back pain.

RELIEF FOR Buffalo, NY LEG PAIN and BACK PAIN

And then remember 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) The Novelli Wellness Center 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.
