Leg Pain Q & A

Why do I have leg pain?

Your legs, ankles, and feet are responsible for bearing the weight of your entire body, and most cases of leg pain are simply a result of years of wear-and-tear or overuse. You can also experience either occasional or chronic leg pain due to:

  • Tendon or ligament injuries
  • Bone or joint misalignments
  • Herniated discs
  • Knee bursitis
  • Sciatica or nerve compression
  • Rheumatoid arthritis, gout, or osteoarthritis

You could even have leg pain because of a hairline fracture that you didn’t even know occurred during a minor accident, like a slip and fall. The sooner you get a diagnosis, the smoother your treatment and recovery process.

How is leg pain diagnosed?

If you’ve had prior X-rays or imaging tests done, possibly from an orthopedist or emergency room provider, bring them to your evaluation at Root Medical. Dr. Nelson can even take digital X-rays on the spot if needed. After evaluating your imaging reports and reviewing your medical history, Dr. Nelson performs a thorough examination.

He may observe the way you walk or perform passive leg movements to further help determine the severity of your leg injury or condition. Once he understands what’s causing your leg pain, Dr. Nelson can customize a comprehensive plan for you, often starting treatment the same day.

What are the treatments for leg pain?

The benefit of getting alternative wellness treatments at a chiropractic office like Root Medical is that the entire team works to help your body heal, naturally. You won’t have to rely on pain medications, nor will you have to plan for an invasive surgery.

Instead, Dr. Nelson and his team use innovative solutions to help your tissues, muscles, bones, and other structures fully heal. Your leg pain treatment plan could include:

  • Erchonia® cold laser therapy
  • Manual chiropractic adjustments
  • Regenerative stem cell therapy
  • Ultrasound or electrical stimulation
  • Traction or supportive bracing

Most leg pain sufferers start feeling better and getting relief shortly after their first session at Root Medical. With each subsequent session, which can occur as often as 2-4 times per week, you get stronger and experience continued relief from leg pain.
