Effective leg pain treatment in Singapore that will give you confidence in your strides again
Leg pain treatment can help to ease problems caused by wear and tear or overuse, and damage to bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.
The bone structure of the leg consists of the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia and fibula of the shin. The kneecap (patella) protects the knee and connects muscles in the front of the thigh to the tibia. The knee joint is stabilised by ligaments and protected from friction by cartilage.
Muscles in the leg attach to bones via tendons, and nerves in the spinal cord transmit information to the legs from the brain. These nerves also return signals to the brain, including sensations of pain.
Disease or injury can affect any of these structures, causing inflammation and discomfort. Also, leg pain can be caused by issues in the spine.
Identifying leg pains
Causes of leg pain
Problems that can lead to leg pain include:
- Achilles tendonitis – inflammation of the Achilles tendon caused by overuse.
- Bursitis – inflammation of the small fluid-filled sacs that cushion and lubricate the area between bones and tendons.
- Herniated disc – when the fibrous outer part of a vertebral disc is torn, causing the tougher inner portion to push through.
- Osteoarthritis – a disease causing the breakdown of joints.
- Rheumatoid arthritis – inflammation of joints.
- Infection – from insect bites and cuts, for instance.
- Muscle strain – a common injury, when muscle fibres tear with overstretching.
- Sciatica – when pain from the sciatic nerve radiates down the leg.
- Varicose veins – veins that have become twisted and enlarged.
- Poor blood circulation – caused by narrowing of blood vessels.

Symptoms of leg problems
Discomfort in the legs can vary from a dull throbbing to a powerful shooting pain. Other symptoms of leg problems include:

If you ignore leg pain, it could, over time, lead to severe damage to joints and muscles. Further, constant leg pain can impair your day-to-day life through restriction of mobility.
Natural leg pain treatments
Non-drug remedies for leg pain include:
- Stretching or other rehabilitation exercises, alternating with rest.
- Ice or heat therapy
- Eating more anti-inflammatory foods.
- Staying hydrated to avoid cramps.

Chiropractic treatment eases leg pain
Chiropractic provides highly-effective treatment in many cases of leg pain.
Our skilled chiropractor can correct a misaligned spine to relieve pressure on the nerves that travel down through the legs.
Subluxations (spinal bone misalignments) can cause pain in the legs by squeezing the spinal nerves. Chiropractic techniques to fix subluxations include the use of a spring-loaded activator adjustment instrument to apply a controlled thrust to the affected area.
Spinal manipulation for a herniated disc causing leg problems entails adjustment of joints to relieve pressure, reduce inflammation and improve nerve function.
Active release therapy (ART) is particularly beneficial in cases of Achilles tendonitis and bursitis. Similar to deep tissue massage, ART manipulates soft tissue to ease stress on joints and nerves. It also breaking up dense scar tissue called adhesions, which impair the range of motion of muscles and joints.
Myofascial release can be used to treat muscle strains by relaxing contracted muscles and improving blood flow in the myofascial tissues that support muscles.
Our chiropractic services also include specific knee pain treatments.
