Indications of Leg Pain

Leg pain does not mean literal pain in the leg — it is an umbrella term used to refer to any feeling of discomfort in the leg. Furthermore, leg pain is also used interchangeably with ‘leg fatigue’ or ‘leg heaviness.’

Ranging from mild to severe, leg pain encompasses calf cramps, muscle aches in thighs, blood clots, vascular issues, and other issues that impact any area in your lower extremities. That’s not all! Leg pain can occur in one or both legs, be it localized or radiating through the length. While the symptoms of leg pain will depend on the cause, you may experience the following sensations:

  • Stabbing
  • Sharp
  • Dull
  • Tingling
  • Cramping
  • Restlessness
  • Aching
  • Numbness
  • Radiating discomfort
  • Restricted movement
  • Instability
  • Weakness

It is better to visit a healthcare provider if you experience leg pain along with other symptoms. Our years of expertise have prepared us to skillfully diagnose the cause of your leg pain. In addition, our leg pain specialist will form a personalized treatment plan to ensure you receive maximum attention and care.

Mysteries Behind Leg Pain: What Could be the Reason?

Many factors are responsible for leg pain, including injuries, sprains, arthritis, joint pain, circulatory problems, and more. While musculoskeletal conditions are among the frequent causes of leg pain, vascular diseases are also accountable for the discomfort.

The majority of the causes of leg pain include:

  • Older age
  • Arthritis
  • Joint problems
  • Strain
  • Sprain
  • Injuries or fractures
  • Osteoporosis
  • Tendinitis
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
  • Varicose veins
  • Peripheral neuropathy

Do not wait to visit a healthcare provider if you experience leg discomfort, especially if the pain is moderate to severe. Usually, an underlying cause is responsible for the pain in your leg. We can also diagnose the cause of your leg pain and proceed with adequate treatment.

Our Approach to Treat Your Leg Discomfort

When you consult our healthcare team regarding your leg pain, we will first determine the cause. To do so, our leg pain specialist will take your symptoms, medical history, habits, and more into consideration. In addition, we will conduct a physical exam, which might include blood tests, imaging procedures, nerve testing, and other diagnostic tests.

After diagnosing the cause, we will work to treat the underlying cause of your leg pain. Our leg pain specialist develops the treatment plan, keeping your medical history and other relevant factors in mind. Treatment for leg pain might include:

  • Nerve blocks
  • DRG therapy
  • Lumbar epidural steroid injections
  • LinQ
  • Physical therapy
  • Intravenous (IV) or oral anticoagulant medication
