Put the Spring Back in Your Step Do you find it harder to walk, run or exercise? Is hip, knee or leg pain keeping you from being active? If so, understanding how your body walks and moves can be the key to putting the spring back in your step. Think of your body as a big spring that stores and releases energy with every step. The efficiency of your walk comes from the effectiveness of your flexibility, strength and balance. When any one of these is off, it affects your ability to walk efficiently and takes a lot of energy.This results in strain to different joints and makes muscles work much harder than they need to. This leads to possible pain in the back, hips and knees. It also causes fatigue after walking, even for a little while. If you are experiencing pain again after therapy, it might be because muscles or joints have tightened or become weak again. The Remedy The simple solution is to put the spring back in your step. This is accomplished by first analyzing how you walk. There are slight changes in the way that you walk and move, that our trained medical experts can pick up on. This analysis tells us just what joints or muscles are stiff, stuck or weak. By pinpointing the exact areas of your body that are not moving as they should, we can make a plan to increase motion, strength and improve coordination.

“Thank you for EVERYTHING” “Kristina Koch is my lifesaver. I arrived in Colorado Springs suffering from birth injuries from my 1st born and had been in pain and unable to perform daily functions for over 20 months.

If you, or a loved one, has back pain or sciatica pain, join us in a complimentary informative workshop on common causes, treatments, and prevention of your pain. Back Pain and Sciatica Workshop Saturday, April 14th • 10am

Now pregnant with my second child, she helped to keep me mobile for my pregnancy and even recommended an OBGYN that would be knowledgeable and helpful with my ongoing pelvic floor issues. Now two months

Kristina Koch, PT

postpartum after my second child I am in SUCH a better place than I was after my 1st born. My scarring is better, my pain is less, and incontinence has greatly improved. I only wish I could live in the Springs longer so I could continue my recovery journey with Kris! Of the three PT’s I have seen for these issues, she has been BY FAR the most knowledgeable and willing to help. Researching new techniques, providing handouts, and being available for questions – long story short; she is amazing! With my improved daily life I give all of the credit to Kris. Being in chronic pain for over 2 years takes its toll on you and those around you. Thanks to Kris, I have a better relationship with my spouse and I am overall happier because I am not in constant pain. Thank you for EVERYTHING—you have given me my life back.” - Melissa F.
