WALK AGAIN WITHOUT PAIN

Your ability to walk is an amazingly complex system of muscles, nerves, and joints working in harmony. If you suffer from hip, knee, or leg pain, the normal movement of this complicated system has been affected in one way or another. Knee and Hip Pain Knee or hip pain can occur for many reasons, but is a mechanical problem, meaning that the joint and muscles supporting it are not functioning properly. Even though a person has arthritis in their joint, it doesn’t mean that they will have pain from it. Pain and inflammation only begin when the joint doesn’t move properly and pressures increase. Many knee problems come from poor tracking of the kneecap or patella. The kneecap has to move up and down in the groove on the femur bone when you bend your knee. It is also where your strong thigh muscles attach. The kneecap sits on fat pads that provide cushioning. However, when the tissue around the kneecap becomes tighter, the kneecap presses further into the fat pads, making them irritated and thicker over time. This affects the normal flow of joint fluid around the inside of the knee and actually dries out the knee over time causing more friction and pain. 22 million (9.8%) of all adults older than the age of 18 years have arthritis and arthritis attributable activity limitation

15 Years Of Elite Physical Therapy

Elite Physical Therapy began with an idea and a large leap of faith in God, in 2001. Julie Shoemake and Kasey Cartwright Parsons opened Elite Physical Therapy in October 2001. Elite’s first location was 1114 North Main St. in Shelbyville, TN with only two employees, Julie and Kasey. The community welcomed us and our new business with unbelievable support, and by December, we hired our first employee. As the support grew we quickly doubled and tripled in patients and by 2003, we had a staff of 5. At that point, Elite decided to take another leap of faith and grow into a second facility. At that time, the city of Spring Hill was in its initial peak of growth and there were very few rental spaces available. Our first location was in a historical older home on Main Street with high ceiling, cracks in the floor, and had many challenges of its own. After months of property searching, we purchased the old Spring Hill post office. It too had many challenges in structure and design. We hired a contractor and began demolition of walls, ceilings,

restrooms, barred up windows, and the face of the building. By 2004, we moved into our “new” Elite clinic with an open house and full of pride with our first very own business property. Spring Hill has proven to be a wonderful town and we have developed thousands of relationships and friendships through our therapy services and community involvement over the years. By 2005, we had cultivated excellent working relationships with physicians in Franklin and decided to expand once again. The 3rd Elite was located in a medical building on Mallory Lane in Cool Springs. Again, it was not a preferred location, therefore in 2006, we moved into a suite in the Aspen Brook Complex on Aspen Grove Road, where we were surrounded by physicians, imaging and other medical support where we are still located to this day. We have been blessed to be part of such a professional establishment and loving caring customers. Bedford County has been very good to Elite Physical Therapy. We strive to provide

the best therapy and customer service available, therefore when we realized we neededmore space, we purchased property adjacent to the clinic on North Main in 2011 and began to develop a modernized facility to better accommodate the community needs. Elite has grown not only in facilities over the years, but excellent programs to better serve our customers. We offer spinal decompression, orthopedic therapies, post- op therapies, fully encompassing balance program with harnesses, virtual reality and Biodex training, and the Anti-Gravity Treadmill where patients can walk with as little as 20% of their body weight. We at Elite cannot express deeply enough the gratitude that we feel to the communities, the physicians, and the industries for all the support we have been shown over the last 15 years in Bedford, Maury, and Williamson Counties. We pray the Lord will continue to bless us and give us the knowledge and strength for many more years of service to our customers.
