What else could be causing my Quads Pain?
The skin on the front of the thigh is predominantly supplied by the femoral nerve, which means that it is also an area that commonly experiences referred pain, particularly from the spine. If you find that you’re getting pain in your back as well as the front of your thigh and you have not experienced any sudden injuries directly to the quads, referred pain is the likely source. In this instance, it becomes more important to treat the spine to reduce pain rather than directly treating the thigh. Sometimes taping or other manual techniques can help to offload the femoral nerve and reduce your thigh symptoms, but the majority of treatment will be targeted at the spine.
