Your legs are made up of bones, blood vessels, muscles, and other connective tissue. Legs are vital for motion and standing. Playing sports, running, falling or having an accident can damage your legs. Common leg injuries include sprains and strains, dislocations, and fractures.
These injuries can affect the entire leg, or just the foot, ankle, knee, or hip. Certain diseases also lead to leg problems. For example, knee osteoarthritis, common in older people, can cause pain and limited motion. Problems in the veins in your legs can lead to varicose veins or deep vein thrombosis.
Leg injuries are a common workplace injury in the United States. In 2008, three out of every 100 full-time workers in the United States were victims of a nonfatal workplace injury or illness, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. This translates into 3.7 million workers’ compensation claims.
Common leg and lower body injuries that may warrant a workers’ compensation claim include fractures of the tibia, fibula, femur and or patella, tendonitis, bursitis, and amputations.
