What Causes Leg Pain?
The leg and thigh muscles are one of the biggest in the body. These thigh muscles and leg muscles require lots of oxygen and are used daily to walk, run, go upstairs, and basically provide mobility to the rest of the body. As such, leg pain can be associated with a variety of different injuries and ailments.
Leg pain can be caused by a pulled muscle, such as a pulled hamstring muscle. Leg pain can also radiate from the feet, such as in plantar fasciitis that can radiate from the heels up to the calves. Lower back pain can also cause leg pain in a condition known as sciatica. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve becomes compressed and sends shooting pain down the outer sides of the leg.
In addition, herniated discs and issues with the spine can also create lower back pain and leg pain.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
Due to the many causes of leg pain, it's important for a chiropractor on our team to properly diagnose the root cause of your leg pain. He or she will help do this through physical exams and asking questions about your pain. The chiropractor will then help provide the proper treatment for your leg pain which can include spinal decompression to alleviate herniated discs.
A chiropractor on our team can also conduct manual adjustments to help realign the spine and help take pressure off compressed nerves. In addition, a chiropractor on our team can also use massage therapy to help sore leg muscles or injured leg muscles heal.
