joint is the second most complicated joint in the body and has to move in many directions including forward, backward, side to side and rotation. These different movements are called accessory motions and are needed for normal walking, running and bending. When you experience pain in the side of the hip, groin, thigh or knee, you may have difficulty with these accessory motions. Prolonged sitting, injuries, arthritis and disease can affect accessory motions. 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 the joints.
Patient Success Spotlight
“These ladies are amazing and so good at what they do.”
To the entire staff at ARI: “I came in to ARI after a spinal fusion. I was not able to lift with my left arm and I couldn’t turn my head without extreme difficulty. I was very discouraged. After a few days with Becky, Meghan, and Ashley, they had me turning my head and lifting light weights. These ladies are amazing and so good at what they do. I will brag to everyone I know about ARI and the wonderful staff. I can’t thank you all enough!.” – Kristina W.

ROCK STEADY BOXING! ARI IS FIGHTING BACK AGAINST PARKINSONS
ARI is proud to announce its participation in the Rock Steady Boxing program at our local Tri-County YMCA. Our therapists Alfredo and Becky are piloting the program to benefit Parkinson’s patients in the community. About Rock Steady Boxing Rock Steady Boxing (RSB) is a first-of-its-kind program, developed by an Indianapolis based nonprofit gym founded in 2006, to provide an effective formofphysicalexercise topeoplewhoare livingwithParkinson’s.Though it may seem surprising, this non-contact boxing-inspired fitness routine is dramatically improving the ability of people with Parkinson’s to live independent lives. RSB was founded by former Marion County (Indiana) prosecutor Scott C. Newman, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at age 40. What is it? RSB enables people with Parkinson’s disease to fight their disease by providing non-contact boxing-style fitness programs that improve their quality-of-life and sense of efficacy and self-worth. Recent studies also
suggest that intense exercise programs may be “neuro-protective,” actually working to delay the progression of symptoms. RBS provides encouragement through a “tough love” approach, inspiring maximum effort, speed, strength, balance and flexibility. Boxing works by moving your body in all planes of motion while continuously changing the routine as you progress through the workout. RSB classes have proven that anyone, at any level of Parkinson’s can actually lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier/happier life. What is a class like? Training classes, taught by RSB Coaches who are also PhysicalTherapist Assistants, include an exercise program that attacks Parkinson’s at its vulnerable neurological points. While focusing on overall fitness, strength training, reaction time and balance, speed bags, double-ended bags, jump rope, core work, calisthenics and circuit weight training. No boxing experience is necessary and people of all ages are invited to participate. Boxers, both male and female, range in age from mid 30s to early 90s.
