The leg is a complexion region of the body composed of the hip joint, bones, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. The hip joint is one of the most mobile and frequently used joints of the body, and as such the leg can be a great source of pain for many.
Many people experience leg pain that has developed over time. This pain can range from slight discomfort, dull ache to a stabbing sensation, or complete immobilization.
The actual source of leg pain can be difficult to self-diagnose unless you have an obvious injury or direct trauma. There can be numerous sources that can cause mysterious aches and pains in the leg including vertebral misalignments, arthritis, tears to tendons or ligaments, cramps, or muscle strain. Nerve irritation or damage is another source of pain as nerves provide feeling throughout the entire body and if inflamed or irritated can result in pain. Much to the surprise of many patients, injuries or misalignments along the spine can create a sensation of pain anywhere along the entire length of the leg.
