Fyzical WY: Hip, Leg, & Knee Pain

N E W S L E T T E R

YOUR HIP, KNEE AND LOWER LEG ARE TOUGH —but injuries happen. Your hips and knees are your largest joints, supporting your body’s weight. They work in close coordination, giving us the mobilitywe need. Between arthritis, injuries and age, however, pain can flare up. If you’re experiencing hip, knee or leg pain, call us to schedule a closer look. Before you do, however, let’s examine the pain itself. WH AT CAU S E S H I P , K N E E A N D L E G PA I N ? Hip, knee and leg pain are surprisingly common. Thus, their source can come from a variety of things. If you’re experiencing pain in any part of your leg, pinpointing the exact spot can help you determine the cause. Fyzical has pinpointed several leading causes of hip, knee and leg pain. While many causes exist, the most likely are: HIP, LEG, & KNEE PAIN

• Arthritis • Dislocation • Hip fracture

• Sprains & strains • Tendonitis • Pinched nerves

• Osteoporosis • Cancer

While some causes are more severe than others, a physician can identify each. As the body ages, joints become inflamed. Cartilage maywear down, reducing the “buffer” between bones. In some cases, limited blood flowmay cause bone tissue death, or necrosis. If you’re experiencing redness, inflammation and immobilized joints, the condition may be severe.

HIP, LEG, & KNEE PAIN

WH AT A R E T H E SY M P TO M S ? While leg pain is noticeable by a slew of symptoms, several stick out. Aching or stiffness around the hip, groin, back or thigh may be a sign of deeper problems. A decreased range of motion, too, is a sign of deeper problems which may later result in hip, knee or leg pain. Sometimes, inactivity can contribute to immobility—and later pain. If you’re limping, lurching or are experiencing bad balance, contact a physician. While some hip, knee and leg pains go away, those lasting longer than several months may be hinting at a deeper issue.

While lying face down with your knee straight, slowly raise up your left leg off the ground. Hold your leg in the raised position for 2 seconds before resting. Alternate with your right leg, then repeat 6-10 times.

H OW P H YS I CA L T H E R A PY CA N H E L P In many cases, physical therapy can help patients increase leg mobility. In doing so, they can stretch, flex and strengthen the muscles responsible for support. If a joint appears deformed, or if sudden swelling occurs, contact a physician immediately. A good physical therapy program can assist with post-operation treatment, too. If you’ve undergone treatment for osteoporosis, dislocation or a fracture, your therapist can help you reclaim full mobility—and a healthy lifestyle. From start to finish, we’re dedicated to your ongoingwellness. On every level, physical therapy serves to enhance the patient’s quality of life. We’re here to help, and we have years of experience backing every therapy option. Contact one of our providers today, and tell us about your symptoms.

YO U CA N E X P E R I E N C E Physician Testimonials I believe in it! Last year around Christmas time I fell off a ladder and tore my ACL. After my knee surgery, I started using the Juvent, and I could almost immediately see a difference in my pain level. The Juvent got me to a better place quicker, by taking away the pain and reducing the swelling. Guillermo Pasarin, M.D. It is virtually the perfect machine! I had major abdominal surgery a couple of months ago and I could not get any of my usual exercises in. Then I started using Juvent every day. I barely had to use any of my prescribed pain medications and I felt better quicker than I had from previous surgeries. I LOVE this machine! Michael Bauerschmidt, M.D., M.B.A.
