Leg Pain Q&A

What is leg pain?

Leg pain is an uncomfortable feeling in your legs that can be caused by several things. Leg pain can show up as:

  • Dull ache
  • Sharp or shooting
  • Leg heaviness
  • Cramping
  • Burning

  • Soreness

The Mission Surgical Clinic experts can find the root cause of your leg pain and treat it to improve your quality of life.

What causes leg pain?

Common causes of leg pain include:

  • Foot ulcers
  • Leg ulcers
  • Varicose veins
  • Spider veins
  • Other vein disorders
  • Nerve damage
  • Tumors
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
  • Chronic venous insufficiency

Injuries can also cause leg pain. You might get injured falling down, getting into a car accident, playing sports, or suffering a workplace injury.

What are the risk factors for leg pain?

Many vein disorders and diseases can cause leg pain—your risk of developing vascular problems increases if you have a family history of vein problems. Your risk also rises if you sit or stand too much, are obese, eat a poor diet, don’t exercise much, smoke, or suffer from a chronic disease.

How does my doctor diagnose the cause of leg pain?

To find out what’s causing your leg pain, Mission Surgical Clinic providers discuss your symptoms and medical history. They measure your blood pressure, check your other vital signs, and complete a physical exam. During the exam, they pay close attention to your legs, ankles, and feet, looking for symptoms of diseased veins and ulcers (open wounds).

Your provider could order blood tests, angiography, an ultrasound, or another imaging procedure to find the root cause of your leg pain and develop a treatment plan.

What are common leg pain treatments?

Treatments for leg pain include:

Lifestyle changes

Maintain a healthy weight, eat healthily, get regular exercise, and don’t smoke to reduce the risk of leg pain associated with vein problems. Avoid sitting or standing for extended periods.

Compression stockings

Compression stockings can reduce swelling, improve blood flow, and relieve leg pain caused by vascular problems.


Taking prescribed medications can reduce leg pain and its underlying cause.

Wound care

Missions Surgical Clinic specialists offer wound care, including debridement, specialized bandages and dressings, topical medications, and grafting procedures to treat open wounds and improve healing.

Nonsurgical vein treatments

Nonsurgical vein treatments include sclerotherapy (vein injections), laser treatments, and radiofrequency ablation to get rid of painful or diseased veins.

Vein surgery

The Mission Surgical Clinic specialists offer different kinds of vein surgery, including varicose vein removal, angioplasty, bypass surgery, and more to remove, repair, or bypass diseased veins.
