Why struggle with leg pain when Palm Vascular in Miami can help? Most leg pain results from normal wear and tear as we age, overuse, or sustain injuries to our joints or bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. However, there are occasions when some types of leg pain can be traced to problems in your lower spine or can be cause by blood clots, diabetic neuropathy, or even Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). Ignoring leg pain, or pain of any kind is never advisable. Make sure that if you live in Miami and you are struggling with leg pain, that you contact the best leg pain specialists at Palm Vascular, sooner rather than later.
Leg pain can occur as a result of a myriad of conditions that affect bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, nerves, or skin. Leg pain occurs in any part of the leg, including in the foot, ankle, knee, behind the knee, thigh, or down the back of the leg. Leg pain can occur in one leg only, or in both legs – and it can sometimes be magnified at night while lying down or while running or doing exercise. Typically, leg pain is a result of tissue inflammation that is caused by injury or disease. These injuries or chronic diseases can cause inflammation to any of the tissues of the leg and lead to leg pain. Since the human leg contains a number of different structures and tissue types, a wide variety of conditions and injuries can cause leg pain.
For diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, it is important to differentiate the exact type and location of any pain in the legs. Nerve damage from diabetes or Diabetic Neuropathy is a common cause of tingling, burning, and numbness in the legs that can be painful. Peripheral Arterial Disease causes pain that occurs in the legs usually when walking or exercising. Blood clots, which are known as deep vein thrombosis or DVT, are yet another cause of leg pain and also a very serious issue. Less life–threatening but also uncomfortable and painful to struggle with, arthritis causes pain in the knee and ankle joints of the leg. Sciatica is a disc disease of the spine that may radiate down the leg, and is another common cause of leg pain for patients who come in to Palm Vascular. If you or a relative are struggling with leg pain in Miami, you should consider coming in to Palm Vascular Center to help you end your struggle with leg pain immediately.
