Denver Acupuncture Leg Pain Treatment Works Best
The first thing we’ll do when you come in with leg pain is identify what type of pain you are having and what is causing your leg pain. Then we will treat you with acupuncture to resolve the pain. We use hair-thin needles to open channels in the legs. Most often blocked channels are responsible for leg pain. The treatments are very relaxing. After treatment you will feel rejuvenated.
Types of Leg Pain We Treat
Neuropathy is numbness and burning pain in the lower leg, ankle and foot. It is fairly common with patients who have diabetes, but can be triggered in anyone. It is also a common side effect of chemo therapy. This condition responds very well to the Denver Acupuncture leg pain treatment.
Sciatica is sharp nerve pain travelling down the leg. Sciatica has three main pathways down the leg – the front of the leg, the side of the leg, and the back of the leg. Sometimes patients just feel pain in the calf or the side of the calf, or the foot. The source of sciatic pain is the low back or hip, but the pain is often felt down the leg. The condition responds extremely well to the Denver Acupuncture leg pain treatment.
Arthritis pain in the hip, knee or ankle. Arthritis (osteoarthritis) is the naturally occurring aging of joints. We can not avoid aging joints, especially if we have been active in sports. But we can do something about the pain. Acupuncture works very well to reduce and stop arthritis pain in the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) tends to move from joint to joint. We treat RA more systemically, with equally good results.
Bursitis is pain from inflammation of the bursa. Bursas function like shock absorbers in the body. A common bursa pain is located in the upper leg on the lateral side, just beneath the bony bump called the Greater Trochanter. Acupuncture helps reduce inflammation of the bursa similarly to the way that it reduces inflammation in tendons, like tennis and golf elbow. Results are quick and effective.
Acute traumatic injury to the leg is a common source of leg pain. This can come from broken bones, sprained joints, injured tendons and ligaments. Acupuncture speeds the healing process of traumatic injury, reduces inflammation and swelling, and reduces pain.
Restless Leg Syndrome is an intense restless, agitated feeling in the legs that occurs most often at night. It is usually painful and makes sleep almost impossible. Patients feel the need to move their legs constantly to seek a more comfortable position, to no avail. The Denver Acupuncture leg pain treatment eases this condition and reduces the painful, agitated feeling in the legs.
