FUN EVENTS BLOSSOMING THIS SPRING

Asmany of our patientsmay know, we recently acquired a new practice! On March 1st, we added Fyzical Joe Battle (previously named Reaction) to our team. I’ve known Henry from Fyzical Joe Battle since PT School at UT Health Science Center in San Antonio, and I am thrilled that we will be working together – we’ve come a long way since then. Fromgrinding in our study group to working together in our community It’s a great time for us and our teams. Henry and I were also in a partnership in practice several years ago before going our separate ways, and it is exciting to be coming full circle once again. In fact, I recruited Henry to come to El Paso in the first place back in 1985! He is originally from El Paso but was working after we finished school in San Antonio. As we grow together there will be opportunities for new programs and trainings with this new addition, and it’ll be fun to see how everyone benefits! Henry’s focus for years has been on RXN athletics. Because of this, he has been able to help several athletes recover from injuries and improvetheir performanceprior to professional sport combines or college programs. By acquiring his practice, we’ll gain the performancemodel for athletes as well as develop our balance and Body Q program. Our mission is to help high profile athletes reach their performance goals and clients who wish to get or stay fit and healthy reach theirs. It’s all about preventing illness and movement. In April our entire lead staff will also be taking a three-day trip to New Orleans! The meeting called Brand Triumph, is a national meeting of Fyzical franchises. Once a year, our colleaguesmeet up as a way to bounce ideas off one another and employ new ideas for helping our patient’s health and wellness. We are all eager to get

together to discuss trends in physical therapy and health – we would like to bring back additional knowledge on important items for patient care and improving contact with patients. Read more in future mailings! As for my family, we have a fun trip planned this spring, as well! My wife and I have always been big college basketball junkies, and we are ecstatic to be taking a four-day trip to New York, in order to see the Big East basketball tournament and visit Mason, our youngest. While this is usually a trip that my wife and I take by ourselves, this year we are bringing Boomer, who was recently admitted intomedical school. It’ll be a big family trip, celebrating at Madison Square Garden! I really can’t wait to spend time with my family. We certainly have some fun events blossoming this spring, and we hope that you do too. We’d love to know – what do you have going on this spring season? Stop by and say hey……. -Luis, Fyzical El Paso

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, however, 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, pinpointing 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, KNEE & LEG PAIN INSIDE: • What Are The Symptoms? • Relieve Knee Pain In Minutes • Patient Success Spotlight • Healthy Recipe • Discover How To Live Pain Free

Whether you have hurt your joints or have been suffering for a long time, seeing a physical therapist at Fyzical Therapy & Balance Centers can help you return to a more active and pain-free life. Give us a call today:

• Arthritis • Dislocation • Hip fracture • Sprains and strains

• Tendonitis • Pinched nerves • Osteoporosis • Cancer

While some causes are more severe than others, a physician can identify each. As the body ages, joints become inflamed. Cartilage may wear down, reducing the “buffer” between bones. In some cases, limited blood flow may cause bone tissue death, or necrosis. If you’re experiencing redness, inflammation and immobilized joints, the condition may be severe.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?

While leg pain is noticeable by a slew of symptoms, several stick out. Aching or stiffness around the hip, groin, back or thigh may be a sign of deeper problems. A decreased range of motion can also be a sign of deeper problems which may later result in hip, knee or leg pain. Sometimes, inactivity can contribute to immobility—and later pain. If you’re limping, lurching or are 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. 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 themuscles responsible forsupport.
