Leg Pain

Leg pain can affect the entire leg or a specific area like the knee, shin, or thigh. Mild leg pain can be intermittent and sore after certain activities, and severe pain can limit weight bearing or motion activities. Pain can be caused by wear and tear, overuse or injuries to the joints, bones, muscles, tendons, or ligaments.

Individuals should seek medical attention if the pain is intense and lasts longer than a few days. Seek emergency medical attention if you hear a crack, are motion impaired, have severe swelling, and have headaches, numbness, weakness, or tingling.
