Shuffling along with a frustrating leg injury is the fastest way to mess up your body. A mixture of damage to muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints or nerves in the front or back of your leg. Here’s a few leg conditions our practitioners are great at treating. There are different types of structures in your legs, each one with it’s own set of signs and symptoms. First we must establish the extent of the damage to the tissue, then we know exactly what we’re dealing with.

Spreading pain over your leg into your foot is more concerning than sharp stinging pain at a specific point. When nerves gets involved resolving the problem may take much longer.
