“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.

Never once felt like a number! PATIENT SUCCESS SPOTLIGHT

“I fractured my heel and was non-weight bearing for 12 weeks. Being new to the area, I found Johns Creek Physical Therapy through an internet search. Marc Stewart is knowledgeable, and thorough. He left no stone un-turned in suggesting ways to improve/support my therapy. I was under his care for 5 months and never once felt like a ‘number’. I began on a walker and left hopping over the stepper! I can personally compare Marc’s practice to a large physical therapy chain: I left for the month of December to visit family for the holidays and had physical therapy. Marc has always shown compassion, listened to my concerns and helped me get back to pre-injury shape. I highly recommend Johns Creek Physical Therapy!” - Lucille F.
