about a year and a half ago I got kicked really hard in the shin. Ever since i've had sort of a dip in my leg where I got kicked...it bruised very badly as to be expected and took about 3-4 weeks to heal and after that was fine untill about 4 months ago...it started hurting a bit more and ever since its just been getting worse...the spot where it hurts has been getting bigger and the pain getting more intence. I went to the Dr and I got it X-rayed and everything...and it all looked fine and he said it was a soft tissue ingury and it would go away on its own...but its only been getting worse...and by now i'm on crutches because it hurts so bad...and i'm a very active person and i can't really do much on crutches...

  • Pain usually has a valid cause. The trick is to figure out the cause and correct it. A physical therapist might be the best place to start as they can probably tell you where the pain really is coming from. Then you can figure out what to change to get rid of it.
