Although they are at the height of fashion and look fabulous, skinny jeans may be a risk to our health. Including, being a cause of a little syndrome called Meraligia Parasthetica. Which is now increasingly on the rise, especially in the younger patient demographic.
It is a neurological condition in which a nerve in the upper thigh (called the Lateral Femoral Cutaneous Nerve) becomes inflamed or entrapped.
This can lead to pressure on the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve.
Chiropractic treatments may help to mobilise and balance the pelvis and also release muscles and ligaments in the hip to help to remove pressure on the nerve and encourage inflammation to settle.
Other alternative treatmeant options may be to take a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug or receive a deep tissue massage.
It is also, of coarse, advisable to wear looser clothing and perhaps refrain from wearing those super skinny jeans and give your legs room to breathe.
