Leg pain is a very broad topic with numerous potential causes. On this page we will only touch on a few things to consider regarding the most common symptoms of leg pain. As always, you should consult with your doctor for a proper evaluation if you are experiencing lasting or debilitating symptoms.
Common Causes of Pain
Leg pain can be very common; the causes can range from muscle strain to degenerative joint disease. The legs can be prone to pain as they, in combination with the hips, knees, ankles and feet, move the entire body's weight and provide support.
Exercise and repetitive stress and strain, improperly performed activity, or heavy lifting may cause strain in the legs. In addition, many conditions in the trunk of the body may produce symptoms that radiate into the limbs.
Leg cramps, one of the more common leg pain complaints, can result after exercise or can be due to an imbalance in the body's chemicals. Circulatory problems, such as blocked arteries and blood clots, are another cause of leg pain.
If you have been diagnosed with herniated or bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, or spinal stenosis, then your leg pain may be due to nerve compression or inflammation, resulting in radiculopathy that begins in the low back and frequently causes leg pain.
If this is your case, many people have found relief with our comprehensive non-surgical treatment protocol. Although this treatment may not be right for everyone, patients who are considered candidates have very high success rates in healing their disc injuries and diminishing their leg pain.
Spinal stenosis, which may cause compression of spinal nerves, can also manifest itself as pain in the legs. Leg pain may also result from neuropathies, such as from diabetes or chronic alcoholism.
A physical examination by your doctor is the first step in identifying the source of leg pain. An individual's physician may perform several tests to determine the potential cause of the pain.
Relief of leg pain involves treating the cause. If the cause of your leg pain is from your lumbar spine and you have been diagnosed with herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, or degenerative disc disease, then you should contact ProMED Pain Rehabilitation Institute to see if you qualify for a new non-surgical treatment approach. This cutting-edge technology driven procedure treats the root cause of the diseased or pathological disc by taking pressure off the nerve and turning on the disc’s natural, biological ability to heal itself.
