Leg Pain Q & A
What causes leg pain?
Leg pain can result from injury directly to your limbs, such as a tackle during sports, fall, or car accident. Leg pain may also be a side effect of conditions affecting your spine. Spinal disease or misalignments in the vertebrae of the lower spine can cause radiating pain in your thighs, calves, and feet.
Some leg pain may be due to overuse or sports injuries. The repetitive movement puts a strain on the soft tissue, causing pain that develops over time.
Infection, muscle damage, nerve pain, and joint disorders may all be to blame for your leg pain. These disorders include:
- Herniated discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Degenerative disc disease
- Circulatory problems
Pain in your legs often resolves with rest and over-the-counter medications, but if you experience persistent pain, contact Injury Care Chiropractic for treatment directed to your particular condition.
How is leg pain evaluated?
The team at Injury Care Chiropractic reviews your symptoms, medical history, and current health to determine potential reasons for your leg pain. You’ll also undergo a thorough orthopedic and neurological exam to identify specific areas of swelling, bruising, and pain.
The team is trained in evaluating digital X-rays and may order additional imaging tests to get a better idea of what’s causing your leg pain. Based on the results of tests and examinations, the practitioners draw up a treatment plan to help ease your existing pain and restore function.
How is leg pain treated?
The practitioners at Injury Care Chiropractic use a variety of proven therapies and treatments to address your leg pain. Treatment options depend on the cause, but could include:
- Chiropractic adjustments and manipulations
- Therapeutic ultrasound
- Cold laser therapy
- Gait analysis and orthotic inserts
- Strengthening, stabilization, and flexibility exercises
- Electrical stimulation therapy
- Decompression traction
- Orthopedic bracing
If these treatments fail and your condition warrants it, the team may refer you to an orthopedist or medical pain management professional.
