BACK PAIN CLINIC
Often, people associate back pain relief with a visit to the chiropractor. However, a professional chiropractor can treat much more than back pain.
Leg pain can be as debilitating as back problems. After all, aches in your legs can lead to a reduction in your mobility. How can your chiropractor help? Keep reading to find out.
There are many different things that can contribute to leg pain. Stiffness or swelling of the knee or ankle joints, for example, could be an indicator of on-coming osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Overuse, wear and tear or joint injuries can also result in leg pain. Blood clots, varicose veins and poor circulation are also known to create leg pain.
Additionally, lower back issues are also often associated with lower leg pain. Because your spinal column contains a large network of nerves, any issues with your spine can create pains elsewhere in your body. This means that a pinched nerve in your spine may actually cause serious pains to pop up somewhere else, like in your lower legs.
A chiropractor can help relieve lower leg pains, including those felt in your knee, ankle and foot. Whether you have developed these pains over time or as the result of a sports injury, chiropractic care offers a non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to surgeries and medications.
Before a chiropractor recommends any type of treatment, they will want to perform a thorough investigation. This could include a physical, x-rays or MRIs, one-on-one personal history discussions, and other types of standard diagnostics. Your chiropractor will want to assess your lifestyle and habits, as well.
A reputable chiropractor will work with you to find the solution that is best for you. Your treatment may include one, or many, of the following: chiropractic adjustments, nutrition changes, at-home corrective exercises, physical therapy, massage therapy, and lifestyle advice.
