What is Leg Pain?

Leg pain may come and go, develop gradually or suddenly, or remain constant whether you are sitting, standing or lying down. By listening to your description of your leg pain and medical history, our chiropractor can determine a potential cause of your pain. Diagnostic imaging scans may be ordered when symptoms are unusual or complex in nature.

Causes of Leg Pain

Leg pain is classified as either neurological pain, vascular pain, or musculoskeletal pain. Leading causes of leg pain include:

  • Hamstring strain
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Sciatica
  • Shin splints
  • Stress fractures
  • Compartment syndrome
  • Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
  • Varicose veins

Musculoskeletal Pain

Pain arising from injury to ligaments, tendons, or muscles is considered musculoskeletal pain. Tendons and ligaments are connective tissues that are attached to bone. Ligaments provide support for joints by connecting multiple joint bones. Tendons attach muscles to bones.

Back-related leg pain can be a type of musculoskeletal pain emerging from lower back problems. Spinal adjustments (chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy, or SMT) are the most frequently utilized treatment for leg pain due to lumbar disorders.

Vascular Pain

Vascular leg pain is attributed to diseases and disorders of the deep veins and/or the superficial veins extending up and down the legs. Deep veins are embedded in muscles and paired with one artery. Superficial veins lie closer to the surface of the skin and are not connected to an artery.

Examples of conditions causing vascular leg pain include:

  • Varicose veins
  • Varicose eczema
  • Peripheral vascular disease (PVD)
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
  • Infections

Neurological Leg Pain

Nerve compression or nerve damage impacting the legs is neurological leg pain. In addition to sciatica, other conditions include:

  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Peroneal neuropathy (knee pain)
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome

When spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal) is severe enough to compress the spinal cord, leg pain may occur that is accompanied by numbness and tingling. It is caused by spinal stenosis called neurogenic claudication.

How Chiropractors Treat Leg Pain

The first-line treatment for leg pain is a spinal adjustment. By realigning vertebrae so that nerves are no longer compressed and irritated, spinal adjustments provide holistic, rapid pain relief for both leg and back pain.
