Chiropractic Care for Leg Pain

By Donna Stark

Back and neck pain are two of the most common issues your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic treat, but they aren't the only issues they help with. Another common problem that can be helped with routine chiropractic care is leg pain. If you are suddenly experiencing pain in one or both of your legs, and you haven't sustained a direct injury, head on in for a visit. The chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic know exactly what to do to alleviate this type of pain and will have you feeling better in no time.

Chiropractic Care for Leg Pain

Leg pain that doesn't come from a direct injury is more common than you may think. It can be linked to the wear and tear that comes with age, complications from previous injuries, an increase in weight, and poor lifestyle habits. It's important to seek help if your leg pain doesn't resolve on its own because if left alone, you could be setting yourself up for more serious problems down the road. Take a look at some of the main causes of leg pain below.

  • Upper leg pain - The underlying cause of upper leg pain may actually begin in your spine or hips and could be a result of poor alignment, weight gain, or medical conditions such as sciatica.
  • Lower leg pain - Lower leg pain may be felt in your knees, ankles and feet. The pain in these areas can be caused by poor alignment, inappropriate footwear, and excess stress.

During your visit, your chiropractor will be sure to examine your joints and muscles, will look for any alignment issues that need to be corrected, and will measure your overall range of motion and flexibility. This simple evaluation will give your chiropractor all the information they need to design a customized treatment plan for your specific issue. Here are some of the ways routine chiropractic care can help.

  • Places the body in proper alignment
  • Eases muscle tension and strain
  • Corrects joint dysfunction
  • Reduces swelling and inflammation
  • Soothes irritated nerves
  • Restores optimal function to the body's nervous system
