Do you suddenly find yourself having sharp pains running down one or both legs? Have you developed a chronic case of aching legs? These symptoms indicate a potential musculoskeletal imbalance or disorder — but they don’t necessarily indicate the need for surgery. In fact, your first stop in your quest for leg pain treatment should be our chiropractor at Back to Mind Chiropractic, Dr. Gady Abramson. Let’s look at some conditions known to cause leg pain, and why a chiropractor is often the best kind of leg pain doctor.
Common Causes and Conditions of Leg Pain
Osteoarthritis – Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that afflicts the cartilage inside your joints. Years of usage can wear out this layer of cushioning cartilage, especially in weight-bearing joints such as the hip and knee joints of the leg. The hallmark symptom is an ache that grows that every time you try to move the joint.
Rheumatoid arthritis – Rheumatoid arthritis is a form of joint inflammation caused by the autoimmune system, which attacks healthy joint tissue as if that tissue were an invading disease. Rheumatoid arthritis tends to come and go, causing pain and swelling. Other symptoms include fatigue, fever, and loss of appetite.
Achilles tendinitis – When your Achilles tendon becomes chronically strained and damaged, Achilles tendinitis is the result. You may feel pain, stiffness and swelling along any part of the tendon, either all the time or the day after exerting yourself.
Knee bursitis – The bursae of the knee act as friction-reducing pads for the joint. But these pads can experience excessive friction of their own, leading to knee bursitis. It causes mild pain that intensifies when you try to kneel.
