Leg Pain: Overview

Leg pain is usually caused by a physical injury, such as a contusion, strain, sprain, fracture, or other injury. However, there are many other causes of leg pain including bone disorders, joint disorders (e.g. arthritis), nerve disorders, circulation disorders, and other causes. A number of causes are life-threatening (or limb-threatening) such as Fractures, Deep Vein Thrombosis, Compartment Syndrome, and other serious causes. Spinal cord disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis are a possible cause of pain-like nerve sensations in the legs.
