HIP AND LEG PAIN

Hip and leg pain is common and involves the joints, muscles, ligaments and soft tissues, and nerves in the region. Whether your hip or leg pain is directly coming from your back, or are isolated to a specific area of the hip or leg, our chiropractic providers have experience treating them.

Causes of Hip and Leg Pain

Sometimes pain in the hip or leg is what’s called radiating or referred pain. In these cases, the origin of the discomfort may actually be in the lower back or pelvis regions. Other times the problem is really localized to the site of pain. In both cases, hip and leg pain often respond well to care from a chiropractic physician. Our chiropractors will examine you and make a diagnosis based on their findings, discuss with you the nature of the injury, and advise you on the treatment options to get you out of pain and back to your normal routine as fast as possible.
