Leg & Foot Pain
We see and treat a range of problems that cause pain in the legs and feet at Jane Reynolds & Associates. There are a number of causes of leg and foot pain and for many of the most commonly presented, we can offer a resolution of pain in a few treatments and not only alleviate the symptoms but eliminate the root causes altogether.
Types of Leg and Foot Pain
At the Eastbourne osteopathy clinic we will diagnose your problem during your initial consultation and start treatment right away so you can start to get on with your life as normal.
Common pain experienced by our patients include:
Pain down the back, side, or front of the leg
This sort of leg pain is usually caused by a “trapped” nerve, or “slipped disc” in the low back or buttock. It often reaches down to the back or side of the knee and to the sole of the foot. You may or may not have back pain at the same time.
An osteopath will treat both conditions effectively with deep soft tissue techniques, trigger point therapy, osteopathic manipulation and/or medical acupuncture. Both a slipped disc, and a “trapped nerve” in the back can be extremely painful and need careful management.
Sometimes the pain develops after heavy lifting, an injury or fall, but sometimes symptoms can just appear as if from nowhere. The leg symptoms are caused by an irritated nerve in the back where the injury is. If you think you have a slipped disc, please rest, apply ice for 6 minutes 4 times a day to your low back on the painful side and make an appointment to see us as soon as possible.
Pain under the soles of both feet
Pain under both of the soles of the feet that gives a burning sensation is known as plantar fasciitis. This can be relieved with trigger point therapy, osteopathy and sometimes medical acupuncture, but some adjustments to lifestyle may also be required such as a change of footwear and a period of rest. At Jane Reynolds and Associates, we provide treatment for plantar fasciitis through a series of appointments and offer an extremely high success rate.
