What is that you ask? A lot of people suffer from this, it was very common about 10 years ago.

Many doctors would diagnose restless leg syndrome and would prescribe medication, but in fact, restless leg syndrome looks like this: People will want to shake their leg all the time, they feel like it’s got to move, they can’t calm down, they will be up all night because it will keep them awake.

What causes that? What would cause your leg to feel like it’s got to move all the time or it’s restless?

One of the big things that we know is your leg is controlled through the spinal cord down the sciatic nerve into the leg.

I recently had a patient who was exercising and walking a lot; he stopped exercising. When you exercise you’re putting oxygen and blood flow into your muscles and nerves. Now, he’s sitting on the couch being a couch potato. His legs are saying, hey I’m restless, I want to move. So, it could be a sign that you need to work out.

The other thing that can happen is the vertebra in the spine will get out of alignment, impinge that nerve and you will lose oxygen and nutrients to the nerve. Then your body is saying, hey I got to wiggle, I got to move, I’ve got to keep this thing awake. So we want to find out what is causing it.

One of the other things you can have is a mineral deficiency. Sometimes with restless leg syndrome you will have cramping. This is an amazing product to help with that, this is called wuji chlorella. I put everybody on it. Especially people with cramping, the number one sign is mineral deficiency. This has over 20 different minerals in this and vitamins, so it’s a great thing to help your body recover from whatever you’re suffering from. It’s a whole food, it’s generic, it’s great.

The first thing we determine is if there is a misalignment; a pelvic misalignment or bone misalignment in the spine they can be irritating the sciatic nerve causing your restless leg syndrome. If there is, we remove that and your body will get better. That’s what chiropractic is all about, helping you get better.
