What is Leg Pain?
Patients experience many types of leg pain that range from occasional to persistent. The discomfort may be sharp, throbbing, achy, dull, and tingling. Resting and elevating your legs is a good idea if you have pain, but chronic pain may require more in-depth medical treatment. Fortunately, surgery is not your only option.
What Causes Leg Pain?
Leg pain can be caused by any abnormalities in the blood vessels, nerves, tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints, and bones of the leg. Your discomfort may even be linked to an issue in your lower back, feet, or hips. Some of the more common medical conditions that cause leg pain are:
- Inflammation in the knee joint
- Knee arthritis
- Muscle sprains and strains
- Overuse, such as working out too hard or participating in sports
- Herniated disc in the back
- Torn ligaments
- Stress fractures
- Torn meniscus
- Damaged patella
What Are the Benefits of Leg Pain Treatment?

What Should I Expect from My Leg Pain Treatment?
Based on the findings of our examination and diagnostic testing, we explain the condition that is causing your leg pain. Treatment options will be reviewed, and we recommend the most conservative treatment first. You may need:
- Sacroiliac joint injections
- Radiofrequency of the sacroiliac joint
- Lumbar epidurals
Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Leg Pain Treatment?
Leg pain is covered by medical insurance, and we review your benefits so that you can prepare for your treatment and the out-of-pocket expenses, such as co-payments, deductibles and co-insurance. You may qualify for our payment plans, discounted rates, and other programs, so discuss any financial concerns with our patient coordinator.
