In many cases, the cause of leg pain and discomfort is glaringly obvious, such as when there is an injury from a fall or accident. Other times, overuse injuries occur as a result of repetitive motion during exercise, which causes shin splints or stress fractures. There is also joint pain, which is most likely a symptom of arthritis. However, when leg pain and discomfort stem from other causes, it takes a bit more investigation to get to the root of the problem. In some cases, careful examination by the chiropractor reveals that leg pain may be due to “lumbar spinal stenosis,” which is narrowing of the spinal canal that can exert pressure on the nerve roots that serve the legs.
At FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC, we recognize that your choice of physician is driven both by the doctor’s competency and personality. With chiropractic problems, you need a chiropractor who is experienced, understanding and supportive. To schedule an appointment for chiropractic care, please call 617-472-4220. One of the many techniques we use is called Koren Specific Technique or KST. This technique is very gentle, yet very powerful. Quite often improvement is noticed after the first few adjustments. We are located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy.
P.S. Leg pain caused by lumbar spinal stenosis is often triggered by activity, but can be relieved by sitting down or leaning forward.
For Your Health,
Dr. Gabrielle Freedman
