Leg pain is a common but upsetting aliment for many people. Some of the causes of leg pain are pressure on an adjacent nerve, neuropathy, varicose veins and sciatica. In most cases the pain is related to nerve damage or related to the musculoskeletal system. In these cases sufferers can find relief at chiropractic offices Dallas GA locations.
Often a misalignment of the spine may be producing the pain experienced in the leg. Chiropractic manipulations to bring the spine back into balance can be very helpful in these cases.

Patients with diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis may experience peripheral neuropathy, which is a tingling and numbing sensation most frequently felt in the feet and legs. The patient may experience a sharp shooting pain, or numbness to the extent that it affects their sense of balance.
In addition to spinal adjustments, your chiropractor may recommend physical therapy where the patient works with a licensed physical therapist and also will perform a regime of specific exercises independently.
