“You Can Move A Lot Further Pain-Free!” WALK AGAIN WITHOUT PAIN
Many knee problems come from poor tracking of the kneecap. The kneecap has to move up and down in a groove of the femur bone when you bend your knee. The kneecap gets its cushioning and support from fat pads that sit right underneath it. When the tissue around the kneecap becomes tighter, the kneecap presses 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, drying out the lubrication of the knee over time, causing a downward spiral of friction and pain. If you or someone you know may need relief from joint pain, schedule an appointment by calling our office at 770-622-5344 or visit www. johnscreekpt.com.
Your ability to walk is an amazing and very complicated system of muscles, nerves and joints working in harmony. If you suffer from back, 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 it is due to 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. Only when the joint doesn’t move properly and pressures increase above normal, does pain and inflammation begin.
