Hip and Leg Injuries

Legs “work” from the hips and provide our main means of locomotion. They permit us to participate actively in work, sports, leisure time activities, etc. Hips and legs help us bend and stretch; they support our weight.

Legs are “tools,” a near-necessity in the routine of living and making a living. Legs do a tremendous job of functioning as extra doors, moving, pushing, pulling, and picking up objects, plus a thousand-and-one other actions and gestures.

And what directs our legs to do all of these things – and more? Nerve impulses emanating from our brains!

If vertebrae and the discs between them are misaligned they can pinch and irritate the nerves that branch out from the spinal structures; which can then cause radiating symptoms to hip and leg.

With our hips and legs we crawl, walk, ride a bicycle, drive a car, swim, leap, climb. From the beginning of man’s history, his hips and legs have been a major key to his survival, even affording him protection as they permit him to run from impending danger.

Hip and Leg Problems

Hip and leg problems can occur in many ways. The miseries of such conditions as lumbago, rheumatism, neuritis, and sciatica are infamous, indeed.

Lumbago and rheumatism both have their effect in the muscles. The hips and lower back (part of the hips) are particularly susceptible to these alignments. Irritation to the nerves which carry vital nerve energy to the hips and legs is the main cause of neuritis. Sciatica is a condition affecting the sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the body, which controls movement as well as the sensory functions of the hips and legs. Sciatica is an excruciatingly symptomatic condition.

Your Symptoms May Start with Common Activities

It should come as no surprise that symptoms often strikes in the hip and leg areas when you consider the myriad tasks that these body parts are called upon to perform. Lifting, pulling, pushing, straining, accidents, etc., can cause injury to nerves resulting in symptoms in the hips and legs.

Most of us have experienced some degrees of hip and leg discomfort due to being forced to sit in a cramped position for a prolonged period of time, perhaps during a long auto or bus trip. This discomfort is usually short-lived. But can you imagine having to endure this – or worse – as a constant symptom? Many thousands of people do, usually as a result of one or more of the above mentioned situations.

A fast pace and long working hours – even mental exhaustion – can result in spinal stress which may irritate nerves. This can produce an almost unbearable symptoms in the hips, thighs, and lower legs. And severe irritation due to misaligned vertebrae and discs may even cause paralysis.

No wonder thousands of people take tons of dangerous drugs each year!

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Chiropractors are concerned with the effects of spinal misalignment on the nerves that carry health-giving energy to every cell of the body. If vertebrae and the discs between them are misaligned they can pinch and irritate the nerves that branch out from the spinal structures; which can then cause radiating symptoms to hip and leg.

In specific problems with hips and legs, the nerve pressure is often found in the lower back, our doctors have specialized training and over 14 years of practical experience.

Our doctors have had years of specialized college training plus valuable practical experience. A thorough knowledge of the spinal column and the body’s nervous system enables them to examine and locate the exact point of nerve impingement. Proper adjustments can relieve the nerve pressure and return the normal flow of nerve energy to the affected areas. Thus nature’s wondrous healing process can begin and blessed relief from hip and leg injuries follows.
