Leg Physical Therapy Treatment
Josh did a great job treating me for a foot and calf-related injury. He did a great job explaining his treatment plan and was able to get me relief and on the road to recovery very quickly.
Casey took an aggressive approach with therapy on my ankle addressing a completely torn ligament and a split tendon. I progressed quickly with only one small setback and wanted to be able to downhill ski before the season was over. I was able to cross country ski and downhill ski and I’m very happy with the outcome. I’ve been running, skiing, biking and heading off this week to Peru and will be hiking Machu Picchu!
Casey was very thorough and great at explaining what was going on with my body to me. I found him to be extremely professional and warm and approachable at the same time. I have and will continue to recommend people to see Casey he is great at his a great PT.
Leg Pain Treatment
Leg pain is extremely common and can be triggered by a variety of issues including joint injuries and compressed nerves. Unless cause of your leg pain is something obvious, such as a fall, it will require a comprehensive evaluation to pinpoint the root cause.
Ankle, knee, calf and shin pain are commonly linked to leg pain. In many cases, leg pain can actually start from an issue in your lower back/spine. Sciatica and spinal stenosis, the narrowing of your spinal canal, both originate in the lower spine and the pinched nerves radiates down your leg leading to leg pain. If your leg pain is due to a musculoskeletal issue, our PTs can help you gain leg pain relief.
Signs & Symptoms
- Identifying the causes of leg pain can be multifactorial. The symptoms of various leg pain conditions may present the same, but the appropriate treatment for leg pain will depend on the underlying cause.
- • Pins and needles
- • Numbness
- • Weakness
- • Sharp pain in back of leg
- • Muscle spasms
- • Difficulty with walking
- • Burning, sharp or dull pain radiating down the leg
- Addressing leg pain involves a multi-faceted approach to treatment. A full leg and back assessment is needed to get to the root of your leg pain. A physical therapist looks for weaker links in your back and leg and assesses your leg’s range of motion to put together a plan of action on how to treat your condition. During your first visit, your PT will look at the state of your tissues, joints, and spinal alignment while collecting baseline measurements of your range of motion, mobility, flexibility, and levels of pain.
- Manual therapy to massage and mobilize joints in the lower spine and leg areas, increase muscle flexibility and reduce any swelling.
- Custom exercises to muscle region and restore muscle strength in strained muscle.
- Run/gait analysis to improve form and prevent future injuries.
