It is easy to forget how much we rely on our legs daily until they become sore. Pain in the legs can be continual, recurrent or intermittent and can impact the whole leg or a specific area. It can present in various ways – as an ache, dull or sharp pain or even tingling. The pain can range from mild to disabling and can affect your ability to walk on or place weight on your leg.
As the muscles of the lower leg control the movement and stability of the foot, increased activity or unsuitable footwear can cause sore and irritated muscles that result in leg pain. Leg pain is often caused through exercise-related injuries such as Shin Splints and Stress Fractures, two of the most common conditions treated by Dan Everson Podiatry.
