• Finding The Source of Your LegPain • Patient Success Spotlight • What’s Causing My Joint Pain? INSIDE:

Do you suffer from knee, hip or leg pain? You are not alone. CDC studies show that 30% of adults have reported some form of knee, hip or ankle joint stiffness or pain in a 30 day period. Thehipandknee jointsare incrediblemarvelsof the human body. At times they have to withstand up to 6 times your body weight in force.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 the side of the hip, groin, thigh or knee, you may have difficulty with 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 the joints. When Your Motion is Lost When you lose the movement of the hip, knee or ankle joints, your muscles have to take on the abnormal strain. This leads to common aches and pains experienced by millions of people. Many people feel that medication will help solve their hip, knee or leg pain. While medication can help to decrease inflammation and pain, it cannot address the root cause of the problem. Most pain in the

hip, thigh, knee or leg comes from poor flexibility, strength or coordination. Treating Leg Pain Todeterminethesourceofyour legpainourphysical 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 relief and the longest lasting results.

Your Pain Could Be Caused By Arthritis Millions of Americans suffer through arthritis pain every day, taking Ibuprofen and stronger medication to numb the pain and address the ongoing inflammation. The definition of arthritis is joint inflammation, however the term has acquired a wider meaning. Arthritis is now used as a generic term for osteoarthritisandotherconditions thataffect joints. The pattern, severity and location of arthritis symptoms can vary depending on the specific form of the disease. Relieving Joint Pain Exercising is important to help reduce joint pain and stiffness.

However, some people with arthritis may be reluctant to exercise because of joint pain after activity.

In addition to physical therapy, choose non–impact exercises such as bicycling, swimming or water exercise.

Bounce Back to Before Remember when… • You didn’t have to lean on the shopping cart when walking through the grocery store (how embarrassing)…

• You could keep up with your children or grandchildren… • You could plan vacations without worry about how long the ride was… • You didn’t have to rely on others…or have them wait for you while you sit down “for a minute”….

Do you suffer with back pain or leg pain when you stand or walk? Do you have pain when you sit for long periods or drive? Do you experience pain, numbness or tingling into your butt, groin or down your leg? Does your back ever “go out” if you move the wrong way? Are you afraid your pain will get worse if you don’t do anything about it? If you have answered YES to any of the above questions (or have a stubborn spouse who is in denial) – the Lower Back and Sciatica Workshop may be a life changing event for you… Saturday, August 19, 2017 at 10:00am. at Paradigm Physical Therapy

Back pain and sciatica can completely ruin your life…I’ve seen it many times. Less movement and enjoyment of life can lead to depression, increased stress and a sedentary lifestyle (mostly sitting…not moving much) which leads to bigger health problems…and life problems. Looking forward to seeing you there!
