When we are feeling well and pain-free, we probably do not give a second thought to how much our lifestyle depends on being able to move about freely, to walk, run, play sport, swim and do all the other activities of daily living. Pain in the hip, leg, knee and foot are among the most common problems experienced – and the ones that cause greatest restriction to carrying on with life as normal. If you suffer from any of the following, Chiropractic can help you to get moving again:
- Hip pain (including hip pain caused by arthritis)
- Leg pain
- Knee pain (including meniscus injuries)
- Ankle pain (including sprained ankles)
- Foot Pain (including Plantar Fasciitis)
- Pins and needles, numbness and/or burning anywhere in the legs

The Most Common Causes of Lower Extremity Pain
Hip arthritis is a very common cause of pain. You may not even realise that you are developing a problem as early symptoms include groin stiffness and pain in the knee that can go on for years before arthritis in the hip is diagnosed.
A Chiropractor can help by diagnosing the cause of these early symptoms. Chiropractic care, including adjustments and manipulation plus exercises for the patient to do at home, can be hugely beneficial in improving range of movement and reducing pain of both Osteoarthritis (the degenerative joint disease caused by wear and tear over time) and Rheumatoid Arthritis (an auto-immune condition where the body’s own defence mechanisms attack the linings of joints).
Most knee problems are suitable for conservative treatment with Chiropractic care. For example, knee meniscus tears, one of the most common causes of knee pain, are successfully treated with a multimodal Chiropractic approach and this offers a viable alternative to the other option of Orthopaedic surgery.
If you are experiencing clicking or popping noises from your knee when walking or exercising, or have pain, stiffness, swelling – or worse, are experiencing the unpleasant sensation of weakness and a feeling that your knee might give way beneath you, it is definitely time to ring NeuroBalance Chiropractic and make an appointment!
A twisted or sprained ankle can be very painful, sometimes involving torn ligaments at the front or side of the ankle and often accompanied by swelling and bruising. Many people have experienced a repeat injury to the same ankle, often because the damage has not healed correctly and joints or ligaments in the ankle or foot are still vulnerable.
Getting Chiropractic care for sprained ankles works because it correctly realigns the bones of the ankle and foot, enabling the body to heal properly and reducing the risk of a repeat injury. The first step to relieving pain and facilitating healing is reducing the associated inflammation, something that Chiropractic treatment is very effective at without the need for prescription painkillers or anti-inflammatory medications.
Chiropractic offers a safe, non-invasive and cost effective treatment for many causes of hip, leg, knee, ankle and foot pain.
