SAY “HELLO AGAIN” TO PAIN-FREE KNEES & HIPS
Your hips, knees, and lower legs are tough—but injuries happen. Your hips and knees are your largest joints, supporting your body’s weight. They work in close coordination, giving us the mobility we need. Between arthritis, injuries and age, pain can flare up. If you’re experiencing hip, knee or leg pain, call us to schedule a closer look. Before you do, however, let’s examine the pain itself. What Causes Hip, Knee and Leg Pain? Hip, knee and leg pain are surprisingly common. Thus, their source can come from a variety of things. If you’re experiencing pain in any part of your leg, finding the exact spot can help you determine the cause. Mayo Clinic has pinpointed several leading causes of hip, knee and leg pain. While many causes exist, the most likely are:
Hip and knee pain does not have to arise from sports injuries. People can suffer from hip and knee pain due to normal wear and tear as well as arthritis. A physical therapist can help you determine where the pain is coming from, and you can do so without needing to see a doctor first. What If There Are More Symptoms? In addition to relieving the initial pain, discovering the cause is the main priority of recovery. If you have other symptoms in addition to your leg pain, tell your physical therapist. Aching or stiffness around the hip, groin, back or thigh and a decrease in range of motion can be a sign of other problems resulting in your hip, knee or leg pain. Sometimes, inactivity can contribute to immobility—and later pain. If you’re limping, lurching or experiencing bad balance, contact a physician. While some hip, knee and leg pains go away, those lasting longer than several months may be hinting at a deeper issue.

Walking Lunge Stand comfortably with your feet shoulder width apart. Take a large step forward with one leg, keeping your back foot in starting position while rolling onto your toes. Keep your spine straight and your forward and back knees bent, so that you make right angles with your hip, knee, and ankle.
