Chiropractor in Queens NY Discusses Leg Pain Treatment
Leg pain can sure slow you down! Pain in your leg can prevent you from going to work, taking care of your family, or engaging in your favorite sports and pastimes. Leg pain can even interrupt your sleep! Fortunately, our Queens NY chiropractor provides leg pain treatment to ease your discomfort and get you back on track.
Causes of Leg Pain
Leg pain may be the result of muscle cramps, bursitis that causes inflammation and fluid-filled sacs in the joints in your legs, arthritis that causes bones to break down at your joints, and tendinitis that affects the tissue connecting your muscles to your leg bones.
Diabetic neuropathy, which is nerve damage from diabetes, can cause pain, burning, tingling, and numbness in the legs.
Back problems, such as degenerative disc disease or herniated disc, can cause leg pain. Discs act like rubbery cushions to prevent the bones of the spine from rubbing together. Sometimes the disc breaks down or develops a leak, which presses against a nerve to send pain down your back and leg. Doctors refer to this type of leg pain as sciatica.
Types of Leg Pain
- Leg cramps, sometimes known as “Charley horses,” which last for several minutes
- Shin splints, which are an inflammation of the muscles, tendons, and bone tissue around your tibia bone in your shin
- Sciatica from disc disease
- Diabetic neuropathy
