We have a comprehensive leg pain treatment plan that includes chiropractic, physical therapy and acupuncture. Leg pain can be caused by many different factors. Depending on the source of pain, chiropractic care can be an extremely helpful treatment option. It can assist with restoring range of motion and improving overall leg functioning. Some of the most common origins of leg pain include injury, arthritis, and nerve irritation.
Leg pain may be the result of tight muscles, tendons, or ligaments that put pressure on the nerves leading to the legs. Sciatica is a good example of leg pain caused by nerve irritation. Sciatica is the term used to describe the symptoms associated with the compression, irritation, or inflammation of the sciatic nerve, or of the nerve roots that make up the sciatic nerve.
The symptoms related to nerve irritation or compression include not only leg pain, but also muscle weakness, numbness, and the sensation of pins and needles. It is often the result of a misalignment in the lower spine. When the spine is not properly aligned, the nerves can become pinched and cause pressure and pain. Chiropractic treatment works to align the spine and correct postural problems, therefore relieving the pressure on the nerves. When the nerves are free to work as intended, leg pain can be eliminated.
