Where Can You Find Relief for Restless Leg Syndrome?
You can’t relax, your legs are itching and twitching, you can’t hold still, you can’t sleep! Does this sound like you? If so, you more than likely are struggling with Restless Leg Syndrome, and, oh…what you wouldn’t give for some relief!
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a disorder that affects millions of people. It is typically associated with women, and has been known to be triggered by pregnancy, but, RLS can, and does, affect men and children also, and has a tendency to run in families.
The facts about RLS:
RLS is one of the most common neurological disorders; it has been suggested that its occurrence is because of malfunctioning of the peripheral nerves, which include nerves that travel from the lower back down the legs.
RLS seems to “strike” at night, when you’re tired and want to relax…but there’s no relaxing for the RLS sufferer, which is why so many also suffer with insomnia. Some of the sensations you might experience are:
- Tugging or Pulling
- The feeling of creepy crawly things on your legs
- The irresistible, unstoppable urge to move your legs…you can’t hold still!
- You may not know it, but RLS does not just affect your legs, you may feel these same symptoms in your arms or your torso.
With all this going on, it’s no wonder you can’t hold still and relax or sleep.
How Can Chiropractic Treatment Help?
RLS is a neurologically caused syndrome.
Chiropractic treatments focus on the health of your central nervous system, and can involve spinal manipulations, which address problems in your nervous system. These treatments can reveal what is causing the nerves to be irritated, then with careful manipulation and adjustment to re-establish spinal alignment and order to your nervous system, your body is allowed to heal, which allows you the relief you seek.
