Leg Pain from My Back? - by The Evidence Based Chiropractor

Can my leg and/or buttock pain actually be coming from a back problem?  The answer is yes.  

Here is how-

The bones (vertebrae) of your spine serve as the protection for your spinal cord. Between each vertebra is a disc which acts like a ball bearing; allowing motion and providing cushioning. Towards the back of the vertebrae is an arch which provides space for a nerve to branch off from the spinal cord and exit the spine. The nerves that exit the spine in the low back (lumbar spine) travel down the buttocks, thighs, legs, and all the way into the foot and toes. In some instances, injured tissue in the low back can affect these nerves and cause pain that seems to be coming from where the nerve ends (foot, calf, thigh, etc). While many people are familiar with sciatic pain or herniated discs; often pain in the knee, groin, foot, calf, and thigh can be traced back to the spine. This is why a detailed history and thorough examination are essential in determining the exact cause of your pain. By pinpointing the exact cause, your chiropractor is able to make a determination regarding the best treatment to reduce your pain and increase your function!
