Brief Answer:
Please tell me more about what is going on with your leg muscle - thanks.

Detailed Answer:
The type of doctor who would address a lower leg muscle issue depends on what your problems with this muscle are and what your other medical problems are.

Orthopedic doctors deal with bone fractures and deformities, muscle and tendon tears and ruptures.

Rheumatologists deal with autoimmune causes of bone, joint and muscle problems.

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation doctors deal with increasing a person's function, from congenital bone and muscle problems as well as after injuries.

Sports Medicine doctors help after sport's injuries or with musculoskeletal problems that limit a person's performance.

There may be other doctors who would be appropriate, but I don't know enough about what you are looking for yet. Any information you can provide will help.

Thanks,
