Common Causes And Characteristics Of Leg Pain
The most common underlying cause of leg pain is from pressure and compression exerted on the sciatic nerve resulting in irritation. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the entire body- compression of it takes place when a disc becomes herniated or is bulging or degenerative changes to the spine have occurred over time. When pressure is placed on the nerve root, radiating pain down the leg, tingling, numbness, burning or aching often results.
Because the sciatic nerve is related to the lumbar and sacral regions of the spinal column, it can become compressed by a myriad of lifestyle factors related to:
- sports related activities
- on the job accidents or injuries
- sitting on a wallet or objects in your back pocket for prolonged periods of time
- weight gain
- piriformis syndrome
- not exercising regularly or a sedentary lifestyle
- wearing poor footwear or high heeled shoes excessively
- standing for long periods of time
- long-term health concerns such as scoliosis
- degenerative spinal issues
How Chiropractic Care Can Help You Heal Leg Pain
Chiropractic offers non-drug and non-surgical options to help heal your leg pain in Franklin, making chiropractic care ideal for short and long term relief. Depending on the cause and characteristics of your leg pain that Dr. Gil will determine in your initial examination, we offer chiropractic care, spinal decompression therapy, and deep tissue laser therapy to assist the healing of this painful condition. Both treatments may be used in conjunction with one another or alone.
Spinal decompression is an FDA cleared mechanical/computerized treatment used to assist in decompressing vertebral discs. A gentle distraction is applied to the spine to reposition the bulging disc while improving fluid flow to the injured area. Once space has been created, nutrients can flow directly to the affected tissue to commence the healing process.
Deep tissue laser therapy may also be utilized to relieve leg pain, reduce associated inflammation and repair related soft tissue. This non-surgical, pain-free treatment takes place along the skin’s surface by restoring optimal cellular health. Dr. Gil will determine how many sessions are necessary to help you find relief from your leg pain.
Dr. Gil may also prescribe nutritional supplements and at-home therapeutic exercises to potentiate the care he offers in the office during your visit.
