Leg Pain & Injury

Areas of Leg Pain

Leg pain and injury are extremely common. Most leg pain can occur as a result of sports injuries, work injuries or simply everyday use. Alternatively, leg pain can be referred from your lower back joints. Sciatica is a well-known source of referred leg pain. Leg pain can also be caused by blood clots (DVT’s), varicose veins or poor circulation.

How Do You Get Rid of Pain in the Leg?

It is important to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your leg pain or injury so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the cause. Musculoskeletal and sports injuries are optimally treated by your physiotherapist. If surgery is required your doctor or physiotherapist may recommend that you seek the advice of an orthopaedic surgeon.

Referred pain from your lower back (e.g. sciatica) is also successfully treated by your trusted spinal healthcare practitioner eg physiotherapist. In a small percentage of patients, a spinal surgeon assessment may be required to resolve your leg pain.

Blood clots and vascular disorders may require the care of your doctor or a vascular surgeon. Untreated blood clots and DVT’s can have serious adverse health outcomes including strokes or death. Prompt medical attention is strongly recommended.

Please do not delay in consulting your doctor or physiotherapist if you experience leg pain. Some leg conditions can take many months or even years to heal when the diagnosis is incorrect or treatment is neglected early.
