Not all leg pain is the result of injury to the tissues within the leg. For example sciatica is often experienced as a pain in the back of the thigh mimicking and often mis-diagnosed as an injury to the hamstring muscles. Sciatic pain can actually extend all the way into the ankle and foot. The pain of an arthritic hip is often experienced in the groin, front of the thigh, knee and sometimes into the shin. In some cases the majority of pain is felt only in the knee.
Conditions such as fallen arches or flat feet can be responsible for back and neck pains and even headaches.
