Chiropractors might be best known as “back doctors,” but they are trained to treat the entire musculo-skeletal system. That includes your legs. If you’re suffering from leg pain, it’s time to call your chiropractor.
The source of the leg pain is an important factor to consider.
If the leg pain is the result of sciatica, spinal manipulation will help to relieve the pain. Your chiropractor may also recommend a schedule for ice/cold therapy to reduce the inflammation and control the pain.
Does your pain come from a torn ligament, sports injury, tendonitis, or muscle strain? Laser therapy is a highly effective, safe, and painless way to relieve discomfort and promote faster healing.
If the pain is in your hip or knee, we will examine your spine, gait and posture. The source of the pain may be originating elsewhere, such as your spine. Or irregularities in your gait or feet could be responsible for the pain. Chiropractors can address subluxations in the spine and ensure your body is in proper alignment. We also offer custom orthotics.
If the pain is caused by osteoarthritis in your hip, knee and/or ankle, laser therapy is a highly successful treatment.
We can alleviate pain and support your body while it heals.
Chiropractors also work preventatively.
We can help you to make necessary changes to your work environment, exercise routine, and lifestyle. These changes can help to minimize your risk of future injury. We can also recommend exercises and/or stretches to do at home that can build strength, ease pain and lessen symptoms.
Chiropractors have a number of different modalities in their “tool kit” so they can pick the best approach for each patient. Every person is a unique individual, so a skilled chiropractor will choose the modalities that are best for each person’s unique needs.
If you, or a loved one, suffers from leg pain, you don’t need to “learn to live with it.” Chiropractic care is a safe, natural, and effective way to treat many types of leg pain.
