Think chronic leg pain is something you just have to learn to live with? Think again!
Leg and knee pain can be more than just a nuisance. It can sideline your active lifestyle and cause unnecessary discomfort and mobility issues. At Back to Health, we use the most up-to-date, effective and evidence-based therapies to relieve pain and improve leg and knee health.
Common Causes of Leg Pain
People can experience leg and knee pain for a number of reasons. For instance, acute cases of leg and knee pain can occur as a result of trauma, such as from a fall or sports-related injury. Age-related changes in the muscles or bones can lead to the development of chronic pain, as can certain health conditions, such as obesity or diabetes.
At Back to Health, we routinely treat patients experiencing leg pain due to:
- Muscle strains
- Joint inflammation
Pain may also occur when the knee joint is not properly aligned, or when a degenerative condition puts pressure on the surrounding nerves. Additionally, individuals who are physically active and regularly participate in sports or other high-impact activities may be more prone to leg and/or knee pain.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help?
The team at Back to Health is highly experienced in treating and managing leg and knee pain, both acute as well as chronic. During your initial consultation, we will carefully review your medical history, lifestyle and any diagnoses you may have relating to your condition.
Once we’ve determined the root cause of your pain, we’ll set to work developing a customized treatment strategy. Gentle chiropractic adjustments can ensure proper alignment, increase blood flow and trigger the body’s natural healing mechanism. Adjustments can also help to alleviate pressure on the nerves which may be causing pain and discomfort.
