Hip and Leg Pain
What causes hip and leg pain?
There are many causes of hip and leg pain, but almost all of them usually involve the joint, soft tissues, and nerves in the region. Sometimes pain in this region is what’s called radiating or referred pain. In these cases the cause of the discomfort may be coming from the lower back or pelvis regions. Other times there may be a local cause for the pain. The good news is that hip and leg pain often responds very well to conservative treatment like chiropractic care.
