Hip, Knee and Ankle Pain

What is Hip, Knee and Ankle Pain?

Lower limb injuries are very common in all walks of life and can start at any age. As with all parts of the body there are multiple pain sensitive structures and so multiple sources of pain/discomfort. It is the aim of your chiropractic aims to work out the true cause of the problem and then take the necessary action. In the majority of cases, the origin can be ascertained through a detailed clinical history and a thorough physical examination. If necessary, the patient may be referred out for further medical investigation and/or care if the condition is beyond the realm of chiropractic. However this is not very common and chiropractors at Chelsea & Fulham Chiropractic Clinic are able to take excellent care of you and your health.

Common causes of leg pain include:

  • Referred pain from an irritated nerve in the spine. This can sometimes be associated with tingling or numbness in the leg.
  • A vertebral disc injury such as a slipped disc, trapped nerve or radiculopathy.
  • Referred pain from low back, hip, pelvis, pubic bone. When there is a problem in one of the joints in the spine and/or the pelvis it can result in leg pain.
  • Tissue injured from trauma e.g. sprained joint, ligaments, meniscus, joint capsule. This can come about from sports injuries, falls or tumbles, or any other physical activity and results in the joint or structure being stretched beyond its normal healthy boundaries.
  • Tendonitis. Commonly from overuse when a particular join has been worked repetitively in the same direction leading to inflammation of the tendons (connective tissue attaching the muscle to the bone). Eg the Achillies tendon or Knee tendons
  • Degeneration of a joint. Most often either hip or knee but sometimes in the ankle joint.
  • Muscle strain. Injuries sustained from physical activity maybe more complicated than it initially seems.

Frequency and type of care with be dependent on the person and although joints obviously have individual properties, in essence they work in the same way and so have many similarities.
