What Causes Leg Pain?
Leg pain has a variety of causes, which can lead to either acute or chronic leg pain. Some of the most simple (and common) causes of leg pain include straining of the leg muscles or awkward twisting motions. These can occur during exercise, or due to an accident such as a personal injury. Other times, leg pain can radiate from the lower back due to a condition known as sciatica. This causes shooting pain to run down either side of the leg. Leg pain can also emerge from the heel due to plantar fasciitis. Other leg pain can be due to joint pain from the hips or knees.
How Can a Chiropractor Provide Pain Management?
Because there are lots of reasons behind leg pain, a chiropractor needs to examine your pain and find the root cause to give you the best treatment options. Leg pain can be treated using simple chiropractic techniques, such as adjustments to help realign the spine and take pressure off the leg. Muscle massages and exercises can also help alleviate tension and swelling in the leg, as well as strengthen the muscles if they have been injured in your leg. These are just some of the many treatments our chiropractor can provide you with.
