What causes leg numbness?
Leg numbness can be a symptom of a wide variety of diseases, disorders, or conditions that either restrict blood flow or cause injury to the nerves.
Temporary leg numbness can occur after prolonged pressure on a nerve or nerves, such as after sitting cross-legged or bicycling long distances.
Leg numbness can occur with moderate to serious orthopedic conditions that can lead to spinal or peripheral nerve damage.
Whether the numbness occurs in one or both legs can help us diagnose the underlying cause. For example, numbness in one leg can indicate a compressed nerve in the lower spine.
At Labonte Disc Institute, all of our patients complete a thorough consultation, examination, and review of diagnostic testing to determine possible causes of leg numbness. We then provide you with the best solutions to get you out of pain.
