Understanding Leg Pain

The location of the leg pain can vary depending on the neurological and/or anatomical structures that are involved. The pain may be described as being burning, numbing, tingling, throbbing, sharp, dull, achy, heavy, and so forth. A chiropractor Silver Spring, MD has to offer to talk to you about these sensations, and perform various exams or tests, to get a better understanding of the cause. Some of the most common causes of leg pain we treat include:

  • Muscle cramps
  • Dehydration
  • Lack of certain vitamins or nutrients
  • Side effects of some medications
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle strain
  • Trauma to a muscle or ligament
  • Injury to the hips, knees, or ankles
  • Misalignments in the spine
  • Pinched nerve(s)
  • Problems with the spinal discs
  • + More

When the knees, hips, or ankles are out of alignment or are injured, the body cannot move properly. This can lead to the entire spine to be altered; thereby, causing a compression of the nerves, as well as significant tension on the muscles. In addition to the above, degeneration of the discs, herniated discs, spinal misalignments, or osteoarthritis can cause pain in the back, as well as the legs.

Sometimes, as a leg pain chiropractor in Silver Spring, MD might tell you, the pain can begin in the low back and travel down the legs and into the feet. Another issue that may be affecting you is spinal stenosis. This is a condition in which the spinal cord canal becomes narrow and compressions the spinal cord or nerve roots. Pain in the leg can result. A Silver Spring, MD leg pain chiropractor may be able to address this problem and reduce your pain.

The Sciatic Nerve

Nerves begin in the low back and run down each leg into the toes. The primary nerve is known as the Sciatic Nerve and it runs all the way down the leg. Any pain in the sciatic nerve can cause pain in the legs at any point of the nerve. This is why some people whose sciatic nerve  in their low back is pinched will only feel tingling in their toes. Another person might feel a stabbing pain in their low back that shoots down the leg. A leg pain chiropractor in Silver Spring, MD can treat sciatic-related issues.
