Acupuncture is a valuable treatment for chronic pain from the head to toes (No 7 thigh pain)

Thigh pain is one of the common chronic pain conditions. Pain can be at the front of the thigh. If the pain at the front of the thigh, this can be caused by hip flexor muscles strain, injury and overuse. Pain or muscle spasms at the front of the thighs can be present. This may be accompanied with increasing pain when lifting the thigh toward the chest; pain when stretching the hip muscles; tenderness to the touch; swelling or bruising. Pain can also be in the outside of the thigh. Greater trochanteric pain syndrome can cause pain in the outside of the upper thighs. It’s typically caused by injury, pressure, or repetitive movements. Symptoms include that pain is worse when lying on the affected side; pain is worsening over time; pain is increasing when walking or running; hip muscle spasm and weakness. IT band syndrome is a common cause of the pain at the outside of the thigh. IT band runs down the outside of the thigh from the hip to the knee. It can become tight and inflamed causing pain at the outside of the thigh. Pain and swelling can be felt around the knees, but it can also be felt sometimes in the thigh. Pain can be at the back of the thigh. Hamstring muscle strains are very common causing pain at the back of the thigh. Symptoms include sudden onset of pain, soreness, limited movement, bruising, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and weakness.
