Your hips, knees, and lower legs are tough—but injuries happen. Your hips and knees are large joints that support your body’s weight. They work in close coordination, giving us the mobility we need. Pain can occur from arthritis, injury, or age. If you’re experiencing hip, knee, or leg pain, call us to schedule a closer look. What Causes Hip, Knee and Leg Pain?

HOW PHYSICAL THERAPY CAN HELP In many cases, physical therapy can help patients increase leg mobility. In doing so, they can stretch, flex and strengthen the muscles responsible for support. If a joint appears deformed, or if sudden swelling occurs, contact a physician immediately. A good physical therapy program can assist with post- operation treatment, too. If you’ve undergone treatment for osteoporosis, dislocation or a fracture, your therapist can help you reclaim full mobility—and a healthy lifestyle. From start to finish, we’re dedicated to your ongoing wellness. On every level, physical therapy serves to enhance the patient’s quality of life. We’re here to help, and we have years of experience backing every therapy option. Contact one of our providers today, and tell us about your symptoms.

“It was a great experience. The Physical Therapist worked with me for a full hour to make sure all my questions were answered and my goal of physical therapy would be achieved.” - Cem H. “I was extremely pleased withmy experience. My therapist Hatice (TJ) was great. She is very kind, supportive, and encouraging but persistent (which I need). She was always prompt and devotes the full hour to me (something very different frommy numerous other PT experiences). This is a wonderful facility, and I highly recommend them.” - C.T. “I was very impressed. The therapist was very personable. She took the time to carefully understand my unique issues as well as explain and educate me on treatment strategy.” - H.E. 1. Mind your greens. For athletes the focus is almost always on carbs and protein. One provides the fuel, and the other provides the restorative power to heal our muscles and keep us training at a high level. Protein and carbs are important, but so are the minerals and vitamins that facilitate their delivery and help to process them. Eat vegetables at every major meal, and try layering your vegetables. Have two or three different veggies at a time. 2. Crush some berries to boost recovery. Want an easy way to reduce soreness? Accelerate your recovery efforts between sessions in the gym by crushing some blueberries. Eat 1-2 cups of berries a day to take advantage of these benefits. 3. Use protein as the anchor for your meals. As an athlete you already know the importance of crushing a fair amount of protein in ordertokeepyourmusclesrecoveringandprepared forbattle.The lists of benefits of getting your protein in are substantial and are a bedrock part of the high performance athlete’s diet. Adequate protein intake maintainsmuscle, improvesrecovery,might improvecognitionandsleep. WHAT PATIENTS ARE SAYING!

4. Take advantage of sleep to increase recovery. Instead of using your sleepy time for solely catching up on your Z’s, you can help charge the recovery process overnight by consuming some pre-bed, slow digesting protein. These protein sources before bed will turn what is an otherwise catabolic 8 hours into productive recovery, repair and growth. If you want to take it to the next level, plan a meal in the middle of the night. 5. Prep your meals. High performance athletes understand that periodization and preparation is everything when it comes to training. This kind of planning and evaluation should extend to the way you are fueling yourself. Do this by having your meals ready before you stumble in the door after a day of crushing workouts. Planning and prepping your meals ahead of time ensures that you are making better choices. After a long day of up to 6 hours in the pool and the gym the last thing you wanted to do was prepare a meal. And so what happened? The convenience of the less healthy options almost always won out.
