“Bend & Stretch As If You Never Had Pain!” KNEE OR HIP PAIN WITH WALKING
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. If you or someone you know may need relief fromknee or hip pain, schedule an appointment by calling our office at 770-622-5344 or visit www.johnscreekpt.com.
