HIP, KNEE OR LEG PAIN “Have You Noticed A Decline In Your Range Of Motion?” INSIDE:

• 5 Diet Resolutions For The New Year • Healthy Recipe • Relieve Leg Pain In Minutes • Patient Success Spotlight

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. The hip and knee joints are incredible marvels of 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.

5 Diet Resolutions For The New Year

1. Go Slow. Resolving to get more fiber in your diet this year? Any diet change is easier if you take slow, small steps. Vow to add a piece of produce to your brown bag lunch daily. Designate a day as fish day. Package up a single serving of your favorite whole-grain cereal, then treat it as your midmorning snack. 2. Water, Water, Everywhere. Water: It’s cheap, fat-free, and gives your body a quenching boost. Drinking water promotes weight loss, flushes out toxins, improves skin complexion and boosts your immune system. 3. Go for the Gold... and Red... and Purple. Colorful produce is packed with disease-fighting plant compounds, so when you shop, reach for a rainbow. Designate a color-a-day. Maybe Mondays are yellow, with grapefruit, golden apples, or corn starring in meals, while Tuesdays are purple with plum and eggplant. 4. Tackle Mindless Munching. You’re chatting with friends around the dinner table or watching a DVD and you just keep nibbling. Try these tips to reign in the munchies: Pay attention and look at each piece of food you plan to eat. Busy your hands with a glass of water, a cup of tea, or cleaning off the table. 5. Stack the Odds in Your Favor. Don’t forget to help yourself succeed, and to reach out for help when you need it. Buddy up with a friend or family member with diet and weight loss resolutions. Then share your ideas, plans, and successes regularly.
