Leg and Hip Pain

Woman with leg painA bad fall, a work injury, an auto accident or a sports injury. Leg and hip pain are often due to such traumatically induced injuries. These can cause an issue with the articulation of the hips, either the femur head of the leg into the acetabulum of the hip or the sacrum in the hip—all of those bones that make up the hip. If you have an actual joint issue, that can cause a substantial amount of pain which can cause sciatica or localized pain in the low back and hip area.

Aging & Leg Pain

As you age, the chances that you’ll develop leg pain, specifically in the knee, foot and ankle increase dramatically. Many adults have trouble with their leg joints, particularly from the knee down. If you experience tenderness, swelling, stiffness and a decreased ability to move, walk, or bear weight you could be at risk of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or other similar conditions.
