Lower Extremity Pain
Aches in the knee, ankles, and foot are the types of symptoms that most patients do not know can be relative to the spine. The spinal column, including the vertebrae and all of the surrounding nerves and tissues, is directly connected to almost every part of the body. The lower extremity pain that you are experiencing could easily be a reason to stop in and see our chiropractic team for help.
Understanding Lower Extremity Pain and Your Spine
If there is tension in the spine, it can greatly inhibit movement in the pelvis, preventing it from moving and rotating normally. Additionally, general back pain can affect the way you walk, stand, and perform regular everyday activities. This can put a great deal of pressure on the hips as you walk and move, as well as your knees when you step and bend, and even cause pain on your ankles and feet. Your muscles in the lower extremities will work hard to compensate where strength from the back is lacking. This will cause you to move abnormally in order to alleviate the pain and pressure on your back. Everything from plantar fasciitis in the feet to hip displacement can point to serious issues pertaining to problems with your back.
