Leg pain can be caused by a variety of issues. Sometimes the problem stems from the leg area itself, and other times the root of the pain is in another location, such as the lower spine. Leg pain can also be a symptom of a more serious underlying health condition, so it is best to speak with a physician to see what’s causing your leg pain.
TREATMENTS FOR LEG PAIN
If chronic or acute leg pain is causing you discomfort, it is time to consult a physician. There are many safe and effective options to treat leg pain.
Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) Stimulation
is a form of neurostimulation for treating more focal areas of pain, such as the knees, ankles/feet, groin, or pelvis.
involve the injection of a numbing medication around nerve(s) to block pain signals.
delivery of an anesthetic drug intravenously to block the NMDA receptors to “reboot” pain receptors that are functioning abnormally in chronic pain syndromes. It is also used for depression.
use a combination of numbing and steroid medication to relieve pain from an injury, arthritis, tendonitis, and more.
Epidural steroid injection
involves injection of a steroid medication using an x-ray around the spinal discs and nerves to reduce pain and inflammation while increasing function and mobility.
Spinal Cord Stimulation
is a form of neurostimulation used to treat pain affecting the back, arms, or legs. It involves placing electrodes next to the spinal cord and using electrical signals to block pain signals.
reduces pain by using electrical signals to prevent nerves from transmitting pain signals. This is most commonly used for the treatment of arthritis of the neck or low back, and also hip or knee pain.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
use a patient’s own blood to stimulate the healing of injured muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments.
Peripheral Nerve Stimulation
is a form of neurostimulation that uses low-voltage electrical current to block or weaken pain signals by placing electrodes next to peripheral nerves in the extremities.
Interspinous Spacer (The Vertiflex Procedure with Superion)
is a minimally invasive treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis that results in decompression of the spinal nerves.
Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Fusion
is a minimally invasive procedure that stabilizes the sacroiliac joint to relieve pain.
Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression
is an outpatient treatment for lumbar spinal stenosis that removes enlarged ligament and/or bone in the spine to decompress the spinal nerves.
Lumbar Sympathetic Block
is an injection of numbing medication around the plexus of nerves that innervate the lower extremities used to treat complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).
Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Injection
involves injection of a numbing agent and a steroid into the sacroiliac joint to diagnose and relieve pain originating from this joint.
