Whether you have a sprained ankle, knee pain, or a muscle strain, leg pain can easily interfere with your daily life. You might not be able to put weight on your injured leg at all, or you might end up limping around on it. Depending on your symptoms, you might also have trouble bending your knee, making it harder to walk and move around in general. Cedar Springs Family Chiropractic has the right solution to help you find leg pain relief. Our chiropractor in Cedar Springs, Dr. Grant J. Buck, can evaluate your leg and develop a treatment plan.
Causes of Leg Pain
Leg pain often occurs due to acute injuries, such as a torn ligament in the knee, a pulled hamstring muscle, or a twisted ankle. You can injure your leg while doing exercises or athletic activities. Being in an accident or falling can also result in leg injuries that cause pain and other symptoms. Other conditions can also cause pain in your leg. Problems with your spine or spinal discs, such as disc herniation or spinal stenosis, can result in leg pain.
Symptoms of Leg Pain
Leg pain can affect one part of your leg or your entire leg, depending on the cause. Pain can be mild or severe enough to affect your ability to walk around. You might also experience other symptoms with leg pain. If you have sciatica, an inflammatory condition, you might have pain and tingling in one leg, along with lower back pain. Knee pain, swelling, and limited range of motion might be present if you have a knee injury. Muscle injuries in your leg can cause muscle spasms to occur.
Chiropractic Treatment for Leg Pain
At Cedar Springs Family Chiropractic, we offer chiropractic adjustments and other techniques to help ease leg inflammation and promote healing. Dr. Buck can perform adjustments on your lower back or knee, which helps alleviate pressure on nerves, providing you with pain relief. Chiropractic care also helps ease tension and stress in soft tissues, such as muscles and ligaments, in your leg. Other methods we use include traction therapy for sciatica and massage therapy to ease swelling and muscle spasms. Our chiropractic services can help you recover from leg injuries or manage conditions that cause leg pain.
