Why Your Legs Hurt, and How to Treat Them
One common cause of leg pain is excessive use or overwork, commonly in athletic activities or during an exercise regimen. For example, runners who over-train for a marathon commonly have painful legs if they push their training schedule too hard.
Similarly, another common cause of leg pain in active people is an injury in the course of exercise or work that is not due to excessive use or over-training. This could include rolling an ankle or muscle cramps that occur with excessive lifting.
Other causes of leg pain may include growing pains, injuries, muscle soreness, or problems with the bones or tendons.
Regardless of why your leg pain is occurring, there is usually some level of involvement of the nerves that innervate your legs and allow you to feel pain as well as know that pain is occurring. This is why chiropractic care is an essential component of any leg pain treatment regimen. A chiropractor will provide manual manipulation of the spinal bones and supporting structures in order to improve the innervation of the legs and decrease pain in the process.
