Have you ever experienced sharp, shooting pain in your legs while walking? Standing too long? Or simply just resting? If you’ve ever experienced leg pain, you know just how uncomfortable and often times debilitating it can be.
Leg pain may be constant or sporadic, and it can develop suddenly or gradually. It may occur only with certain activities, or while your legs are at rest. Pain can affect the entire leg or just a part of it. Other sensations of the leg can vary as dull or sharp, aching or stabbing, and burning or numbness and tingling.
Common causes of leg pain can range from arthritis, muscle cramps, muscle strain, tendinitis, sciatica, bursitis, nerve damage or sprains but many don’t realize that the circulation to your legs and blood flow back to the heart can play an important role in the cause of your leg pain.
Normally blood is pumped from our heart to the rest of our body. In our legs we need valves in our vessels to help recycle blood back to the heart and keep circulation flowing. However, over time those vessels can stretch and those valves can no longer work as efficient. As a result, blood and waste products begin to pool in our legs and that’s when we can start to develop different symptoms of leg pain.
At Wellness and Surgery we can perform a quick 10 minute ultrasound to help us diagnose and treat you so you can live a healthier more active life free of leg pain.
