Tackle The Source Of Your Pain! HIP, KNEE&LEGPAIN
The hip and knee joints are incredible marvels of the human body. At times they have to withstand up to 6 times the force of your body weight. The knee joint is the second most complicated joint in the body and has to move in many directions including forward, backward, side to side and rotation. These different movements are called accessory motions and are needed for normal walking, running and bending. When you experience pain in or around the knee, you may have lost movement in these accessory motions. Prolonged sitting, injuries, arthritis and disease can affect accessory motions. With every day use, tissues around the hip and knee joints tighten, leading to a gradual loss of motion. This causes a lot of pressure to build up on specific parts of these joints. If you want to return to a pain-free, active lifestyle, contact us today to schedule an appointment at 810-695-0750.
FINDING THE SOURCE FOR LEG PAIN
When Your Motion is Lost When you lose the movement of your hip, knee or ankle joints, the muscles have to take on the strain. This is the common source of aches and pains experienced by millions of people. The physical therapy experts at Global Physical Therapy & Spine Specialists have years of training in examination of the mechanics of joints and tissues. Many people feel that medication will help solve their hip, knee or leg pain. Whilemedication can help to decrease inflammation and pain, it cannot address the cause of the problem. Most pain in the hip, thigh or knee comes from poor flexibility, strength or coordination. This happens for a variety of reasons, but takes the skill of our physical therapists to examine and find the root cause. Treating Leg Pain To determine the source of your leg pain our expert physical therapists
examine your walking, squatting, joint movement, comparing the strength and mobility of the joints. A comprehensive treatment plan, including special hands-on techniques, is made to achieve the fastest pain relief and the longest lasting results. If you are suffering with hip, knee or leg pain, call us today to learn more how we can quickly relieve your pain and put a spring back in your step!

PATIENT SUCCESS SPOTLIGHT
I have been amazed with the results! “After trying many treatments for my foot pain with no improvement, someone told me about Global Physical Therapy in Grand Blanc. I have been amazed with the results. The upper part of my foot felt like I had a broken bone. Dr. McFarland explained what was going on with my foot and tendons. When I went to see him I could hardly walk and it hurt to put shoes on. He showed me stretching exercises and did dry needling. I walked out of his office after the first visit with no pain in my foot. I went on vacation for 4 weeks and walked 4 to 5 miles a day with no foot pain. I can’t say enough about the wonderful therapy and treatment I have received.” – Linda K.
