Injuries affecting the lower limb are very common in all walks of life and can affect anyone at any age.

The most important element is to find out what is causing the pain in your hip, knee or ankle.

Our work is to make sure that we deal with the problem in a non-invasive manner.
What Cause Hip, Knee and Ankle Pain?
The following are some of the most common cases of pain in the hip joint, Knee and ankle:
- Referred Pain: If there is an irritated nerve in the spine, the pain might be experienced in the hip and leg. This kind of pain is also associated with numbness and tingling sensation. The pain can also be referred from lower back, pelvis, hip or pubic bone. Pain in the knee, hip, or ankle can result from a problem in the spine joints and pelvis region.
- Vertebrae disc injury: Radiculopathy, trapped nerve or slipped disc can lead to pain in the leg.
- Tissue injury: Trauma injuries such as ligaments, sprained joint, meniscus and joint capsules can be a cause of pain. These injuries are mostly caused by sports, tumbles, falls, or any other activity that might lead to the over stretching of these joints beyond their normal abilities.
- Tendonitis: Repetitive movement or overuse of a particular joint can lead to tendon inflammation such as knee and Achilles tendon inflammation causing a lot of pain.
- Joint Degeneration: There are factors that can lead to the degeneration of the hip and knee joint and sometimes ankle joint. The degeneration can be a great source of pain in these joints.
- Muscle strain: Physical injuries can lead to muscle strain near the hip, knee, and ankle resulting in pain.
