Chronic Leg Pain Relief

Chronic Leg Pain in Alameda and OaklandLeg pain that involves a burning, shooting sensation is often chronic and can lead to difficulty walking, exercising, or moving altogether. The pain may affect one leg or both, and extend below the knee, into the foot. It’s commonly caused by spinal issues such as bulging or herniated discs that pinch and irritate the spinal nerves at their origin, causing pain that starts in the lower back or torso and radiates through the limb. Existing or new scar tissue along the nerve’s sheath can also complicate the condition, making pain intolerable.

Luckily, chronic leg pain can be eased and eliminated without a long-term reliance on ineffective and addictive pain medication. Since leg pain is often a symptom of a spinal ailment or misalignment, a chiropractic approach to treatment can effectively deal with the underlying causes of leg pain.

What causes chronic back pain?

Spinal problems are a major cause of chronic leg pain. As follows:

  • Disc problems: The disc is the part between the vertebrae that includes the fibrous capsule and the nucleus pulposus. Due to several factors, a disc can bulge or herniate. The fibrous capsule is torn, the mucous nuclei escape, causing pressure on the nerves, from which unpleasant pain occurs.
  • Spinal Stenosis: The space in the bones of the vertebrae narrows, which puts pressure on surrounding nerves and can cause numbness, itching, loss of sensation, and weakness in the legs.
  • Spondylolisthesis: when the vertebrae slip out of their original position, damaging the surrounding areas, including the nerves, and foot pain will appear if this condition is not treated promptly.
  • Sciatica: pain occurs in the lower back, then spreads to the hips, thighs and toes. The patient will feel pain, numbness and tingling, especially difficulty in movement and movement.
  • Arthritis: Inflammation and swelling in the joints, causing knee pain, hip pain, ankle pain,…

In addition, diseases such as Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), Peripheral Neuropathy, Electrolyte Imbalance, Gout, Varicose Veins, Stress Fracture,… also cause chronic leg pain.
