“Spring Into Action With The Help Of Johns Creek PT! ” Hip, Knee Or Leg Pain & Finding The Source
The hip and knee joints are incredible marvels of the human body. At times they have towithstand up to 6 times the force of your body weight. The knee joint is the second most complicated joint in the body and has tomove inmany directions including forward, backward, side to side and rotation. These different movements are called accessorymotions and are needed for normal walking, running and bending. When you experience pain in or around the knee, you may have lost movement in these accessory motions. Prolonged sitting, injuries, arthritis and disease can affect accessorymotions. 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 these joints. When Your Motion is Lost When you lose the movement of your hip, knee or ankle joints, the muscles have to take on the strain. This is the common source of aches and pains experienced by millions of people. The physical therapy experts at Johns Creek Physical Therapy have years of training in examination of the mechanics of joints and tissues. Many people feel that medication will help solve their hip, knee or leg pain. While medication can
help to decrease inflammation and pain, it cannot address the cause of the problem. Most pain in the hip, thigh or knee comes from poor flexibility, strength or coordination. This happens for a variety of reasons, but takes the skill of our physical therapists to examine and find the root cause. Treating Leg Pain To determine the source of your leg pain our expert physical therapists examine your walking, squatting, joint movement, comparing the strength and mobility of the joints. A comprehensive treatment plan, including special hands-on techniques, is made to achieve the fastest pain relief and the longest lasting results.
