Leg pain can occur anywhere from the hip down to the heel, and can come in many forms, such as pain that is constant versus intermittent, pain that develops suddenly versus gradually, or pain that affects the entire leg versus a certain area such as the knee or shin.
With acupuncture we can remove these blockages to allow full circulation of qi-energy and blood to the legs.
The quality of the pain can also range, from dull and aching to tingling or sharp and stabbing.
However, leg pain doesn’t always originate in your leg, spinal problems or injuries can cause pain to radiate into the leg from the lower back, such as with sciatica.
A wind-pattern will cause leg pain which moves throughout various locations in the leg for short periods of time. This is especially true when the blockage occurs in an area of the body that we constantly rely on, such as our legs.

By determining the cause of the pain, we can cater treatment to the specific problem of each individual. Because we rely on our legs to get us around, leg pain can interfere with our daily lives by affecting our ability to walk, put weight on the leg or feel stable standing on our own two feet. Cold-pattern will have symptoms of severe pain in the leg or leg joints in a fixed location, as well as a cold sensation, pain decreasing with application of heat and increasing with exposure to cold, and a lack of mobility in the leg. If we continue to make our regular demands on our legs, over time these demands will deplete and weaken the area, leading to pain, weakness, or injury.
A person may also have internal imbalances or weaknesses that make him or her particularly prone to a leg injury of some sort. In the case of pain, an external invasion will affect the muscles, bones, tendons and joints, and will present symptoms of either aching pain, heaviness, numbness, lack of mobility, or swelling and redness.

Dampness-pattern pain will have symptoms of heaviness and aching in the leg or the leg joints, swelling, numbness, pain in a fixed location, and an increase in the pain during rainy or overcast weather. By looking at each person’s individual health, we can not only resolve the pain and weakness that is being experienced, but we can also strengthen the body so that it is functioning in better health and less prone to a repeat injury or pain problem in the future. Heat-pattern pain will also have severe pain as with cold-pattern, but will show symptoms of heat, redness and swelling in the area of pain, lack of mobility in the leg and general body symptoms of feverishness, thirst, and irritability.
