Leg pain can be caused by a variety of things: injuries, arthritis, overuse, blood clots, and more. Treatments will depend on the reason for pain. Rest, ice, elevation, and pain relievers can take care of many types of leg pain.

Minor leg injuries are common. Symptoms often develop from everyday wear and tear, overuse, or an injury. An acute injury may occur from a direct blow, a penetrating injury, a fall, or from twisting, jerking, jamming, or bending a limb abnormally. Pain may be sudden and severe. Bruising and swelling may develop soon after the injury. Acute injuries usually require prompt medical evaluation.
