Leg & Foot Pain

Leg and foot pain can substantially interfere with daily life. That’s why our goal at at all clinics supported by American Pain Consortium is to quickly and accurately diagnose the cause of leg and foot pain, so we can begin treatment as soon as possible.

Sometimes, pain in the feet or legs actually originates in the spine. A pinched nerve can cause pain in the extremities or in any part of the leg. Soothing an irritated nerve may help resolve pain in the foot or leg.

For chronic pain in the feet or legs, medication alone isn’t effective. Patients show the most improvement when they receive multifaceted treatment.

If you’re experiencing leg and foot pain, contact us to schedule an appointment. We’d be happy to help you start your healing journey.

Causes of Leg and Foot Pain

Common underlying causes of leg and foot pain include:

  • Acute injuries, including muscle strains, ligament sprains, tendonitis, and meniscus tears
  • Degenerative arthritis of the knee or hip
  • Excessive scar tissue from a previous injury
  • Fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, or diabetes
  • Neuropathic conditions, including complex regional pain syndrome and diabetic neuropathy
  • Nerve root compression in the spine, including sciatica or lumbar radiculopathy

Your leg and foot pain may also be accompanied by other signs and symptoms including numbness and tingling, impaired reflexes, weakness, decreased mobility, and joint stiffness.

Treatment for Leg and Foot Pain

In some cases, leg and foot pain is manageable with non-surgical treatments. Services such as physical therapy, pain-relieving medications, and nerve blocks can all be effective at minimizing and controlling pain and improving overall function.
