Leg Physical Therapy

I was skeptical about going to physical therapy but so glad I did. My therapist, Whitney has been wonderful in every way and is helping my knee problem. I am so very happy I decided to come to Therapydia.

Due to the onset of age, in addition to a previous knee injury, my ability to exercise safely and without pain had become compromised. Jonathan Burke was recommended to me by several people, independently of one another, which was my first indication that seeing him would be a positive step on my part. Within an incredibly short period of time, the pain that I used to feel minimized to the point of being non-existent, and my range of motion increased dramatically. Moreover, Jonathan truly cares about my progress, often urging me to contact him personally should I experience any problems. He is a professional in every sense of the word.

My experience with John was very professional.The exercises that were done are directed to the point intended.It seems John takes pride in the work he’s doing.I had therapy in 2002 for my right knee,working with John was much better therapy. Working with one person seems to go better then different people throughout the sessions.I have all good remarks for Jonathan Burke in strengthening of my Knee.

Leg Pain Treatment

Leg pain is extremely common and can be triggered by a variety of issues including joint injuries and compressed nerves. Unless cause of your leg pain is something obvious, such as a fall, it will require a comprehensive evaluation to pinpoint the root cause.


Ankle, knee, calf and shin pain are commonly linked to leg pain. In many cases, leg pain can actually start from an issue in your lower back/spine. Sciatica and spinal stenosis, the narrowing of your spinal canal, both originate in the lower spine and the pinched nerves radiates down your leg leading to leg pain. If your leg pain is due to a musculoskeletal issue, our PTs can help you gain leg pain relief.


Signs & Symptoms

    Identifying the causes of leg pain can be multifactorial. The symptoms of various leg pain conditions may present the same, but the appropriate treatment for leg pain will depend on the underlying cause.

    Common symptoms:
    • Pins and needles
    • Numbness
    • Weakness
    • Sharp pain in back of leg
    • Muscle spasms
    • Difficulty with walking
    • Burning, sharp or dull pain radiating down the leg

Why Physical Therapy

    Addressing leg pain involves a multi-faceted approach to treatment. A full leg and back assessment is needed to get to the root of your leg pain. A physical therapist looks for weaker links in your back and leg and assesses your leg’s range of motion to put together a plan of action on how to treat your condition. During your first visit, your PT will look at the state of your tissues, joints, and spinal alignment while collecting baseline measurements of your range of motion, mobility, flexibility, and levels of pain.

    • Manual therapy to massage and mobilize joints in the lower spine and leg areas, increase muscle flexibility and reduce any swelling.
    • Custom exercises to muscle region and restore muscle strength in strained muscle.
    • Run/gait analysis to improve form and prevent future injuries.
