Chiropractic Treatment Options for Leg Pain
Leg pain has many different causes, and for many, it’s just a passing twinge of pain. While the occasional bit of pain in your legs usually doesn’t cause red flags to go up, chronic leg pain is something that needs to be discussed with both your chiropractor and primary care provider.
Persistent pain should never be taken lightly, and while the cause may be something as insignificant as a minor passing cramp, leg pain can be a sign of something more significant. If you or your loved one begin to notice a pattern in leg pain, seek a professional opinion as soon as possible.

Chiropractic for Leg Pain
Once Dr. Hattaway and the team at Health for Life Chiropractic have found the source of your leg pain, several different chiropractic treatments can be utilized as a part of your leg pain treatment.
Several underlying spinal conditions can cause leg pain. For instance, herniated discs along your spine can cause pinched nerves that lead to pain and numbness that radiates down your leg. Spinal manipulation can help to realign your body to its natural position, taking pressure off of your nerves and helping to alleviate leg pain.
Massage therapy allows your muscles to be worked over and stretched to help aid in the recovery of muscular problems that could be leading to leg pain and cramps. It also helps to improve the circulation of the blood in your legs, bringing much-needed oxygen to the muscles.
