Houston Chiropractor 1960 West Chiropractic Center Offers Relief for Restless Leg Syndrome

Dr. Karen Thomason Advocates Treatments Over Prescription Medications

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - August 19, 2010) -  Nothing is worse than needing a good night's sleep, but waking in the middle of the night with leg pain and movement. Houston Chiropractor Dr. Karen Thomason of 1960 West Chiropractic Center notes that many patients suffer from Restless leg syndrome (RLS), the irresistible urge of an individual to move their legs.

Restless leg syndrome can begin at any age, but it is more common in older patients and women, who are more likely to develop this condition than men. The symptoms include cramping, tingling, aching and a "crawling" sensation in the legs, thighs and calves. RLS affects most people at night, and lying down and trying to relax activates the symptoms. As a result, sleep is affected and exhaustion often ensues.

While many turn to prescription medications, Dr. Thomason notes that chiropractic treatment can alleviate many of the unpleasant symptoms of RLS and allow patients to have an uninterrupted night's sleep, which is essential for good health.

"The symptoms of RLS are very uncomfortable and difficult to withstand," said Dr. Thomason. "We have helped many patients with treatments to release the tension in the legs and calves. Chiropractic sessions have been effective in alleviating pain naturally, without the use of drugs."

RLS affects as many as 12 million Americans and Houston chiropractic care is available through 1960 West Chiropractic to enable individuals suffering from RLS, or many other physical conditions such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, leg numbness and many more physical ailments, to heal naturally.
