Leg Pain

Leg Pain Treatment from Our Tracy, CA, Chiropractor

According to the Mayo Clinic, the average person in the U.S. walks approximately 3,000 to 4,000 steps daily, which is the equivalent of 1.5 to two miles. This isn't taking into consideration that some people walk much more, some have leg issues that make even fewer steps difficult, and some run or perform other aerobic exercises that work the legs. 


With so much stress on those legs, it's no wonder we commonly see patients who struggle with leg pain. Let's discuss the reasons for that leg pain and what our chiropractor at Rawlinson Chiropractic, serving Tracy, CA, and the nearby region, can do for your pain. 

Causes of Leg Pain 

Leg pain can either be chronic or acute. You could develop it from using your legs too much and stressing the muscles and other soft tissue. If you push your legs beyond their abilities, you could damage this soft tissue. Spending much of your time being sedentary could stress your legs if you're holding them in uncomfortable positions for prolonged periods of time or when you push them more than the average.

On the contrary, you could also develop leg pain from a chronic problem. For instance, if you continuously put a strain on your knees over time, you could develop arthritis that'll cause knee pain. Certain people who use their knees regularly may develop runner's knee, which could be acute or chronic and cause knee pain.  

A personal injury could be the culprit. For instance, leg pain could stem from a personal injury at work, such as a slip and fall.

A vitamin deficiency could cause pain and cramping in your legs. 

Sometimes, the cause of your leg pain may have nothing to do with your legs. Sounds weird, right? However, your musculoskeletal system is very interconnected. A problem in one part could cause issues in another. In the case of your legs, a problem in your lower back, particularly with the sciatic nerve (a condition known as sciatica), could cause you to have pain that radiates down one or both legs. 

We'd like to stress that these are only a few examples of why you might have neck pain. 

Chiropractic Care 

Chiropractic care can be useful if you have leg pain. We can realign a knee joint to ease knee pain and discomfort on the nearby nerves and soft tissue. We may even use a general chiropractic alignment to correct sciatica to relieve your leg pain.

On the other hand, we can provide exercise therapy to work the soft tissue in the leg and encourage blood flow to promote healing and reduce inflammation.
