Chiropractic Care for Leg Pain

Most people do not realize that chiropractic care not only treats the back but can also treat shin splints, leg cramps, tendonitis, sciatica, and upper and lower leg pain. Here at Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation in Chesapeake, we are ready to treat patients with whatever leg pain they are experiencing. Leg pain is usually caused by accidents, sports injuries, health problems, poor diet, or lack of exercise. We can treat leg pain with chiropractic care, corrective exercises, heat and cool therapy, massage, and nutritional counseling.

Chiropractic Care for Leg Pain

Our chiropractor will take a look at your medical history, perform a physical exam, and possibly take X-rays to determine the cause of your leg pain. Once the cause of the pain is determined, we will suggest a combination of therapies to treat the condition. Leg pain is commonly a result of disc problems, nutritional deficiencies, muscle cramps, side effects from medications, subluxations, muscle fatigue or strain, or personal injury. There are different types of chiropractic care that our doctor is trained in using to treat your leg pain.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Manual therapy applies hands-on chiropractic care to the muscles, back, legs, tissues, joints, shin, ankles, and feet to reduce pain, increase motion, and increase blood flow. It involves massaging, kneading, and stretching muscles and soft tissue. Often, the therapy is followed by moist heat packs or ice packs to reduce pain and inflammation. A drop table is a technique that involves using a special table that moves up and down to treat leg pain while improving the patient’s range of motion.

Corrective exercises are often used to help with leg pain. We will design an exercise plan for you to do at home or in the office that best fits your needs. Our chiropractor may suggest walking, biking, swimming, or yard work as other ways to exercise. Massage therapy is often used to treat leg pain by relieving stress in the muscles making it easier for mobility.

Nutritional counseling can help improve health and reduce leg cramps by keeping to a special diet and taking supplements. With nutritional counseling, we will design an exercise program that will help heal your leg pain. We can treat injuries from work, auto accidents, sports, or any situation the patient experiences.

  • ""I first came to Atlantic Chiropractic 5 years ago with a pinched nerve in my neck. I was in so much pain, I could not even move my head. Dr. Eric diagnosed the problem almost immediately and confirmed it with the EMG. He set up a treatment plan and told me I probably would not feel significant relief for a good two weeks. I appreciated his thoroughness, expertise, and honesty. As it turned out, I was actually pain free in one week! I always refer my friends to Dr. Eric/Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation for the most trusted effective chiropractic care.""
