From running up a mountain to walking on the beach, our legs propel us to everywhere we want to go, and for everything, we want to do.
When you have pain in your legs, it can be debilitating. Not only does it hurt and cause great discomfort, but it can prevent you from doing the things you enjoy or would otherwise want to do. This is why seeking early leg pain treatment is essential.
Causes of Leg Pain
There are dozens of factors that might be causing or worsening your leg pain.
One common cause of pain to the upper or lower leg, knee, and ankle is an athletic injury. This could include twists, sprains, or even torn ligaments in the joints, as well as muscular injuries.
Some leg pain is related to chronic illness, such as that caused by spinal stenosis, rheumatoid arthritis, or other conditions that an individual may experience. Many of these become more common with age.
Other causes of leg pain that are relatively common include fractured bones, cancers, and disorders of the vascular system such as deep vein thromboses.
Treating Your Leg Pain the Effective Way
Of course, since there are dozens of causes of leg pain, there are also dozens of possible leg pain treatments. Finding the best one for you may be a process of trial and error.
The most common initial treatments for leg pain include rest, elevation, and the application of ice or cold to the affected limb. These in combination with pain medications are often effective in the short term.
However, effective long-term treatment of most causes of leg pain can be done through chiropractic care. A qualified chiropractor can assess the cause and nature of your pain and create a treatment plan to reduce or resolve it by manipulating your nervous system.
