WALK AGAIN WITHOUT HIP OR KNEE PAIN

Have you ever thought about how amazing our ability to walk is? It is a complex system of muscles, nerves, and joints working together in harmony to lift you up. But what if you experience pain while walking? If you experience hip, knee, or leg pain, it could mean that the complex system of your gait has been effected in some way or another. For more information regarding how our treatments can help you, give us a call today! What causes knee and hip pain? Knee and hip pain occur when the joints and muscles surrounding those areas lack their normal function. If the joint isn’t functioning properly, it can alter one’s mobility, which will increase pressure on the area. This can cause the area to become inflamed, thus resulting in pain. If you are experiencing hip pain, it is likely that there is a problem with your hip joint. When this happens, you will experience pain inside of your hip, or in your groin area. If you are experiencing pain outside of your hip, in your upper thigh, or buttock region, then it is likely that there is a problem with the muscles, tendons, ligaments, Whether you have hurt your knees or have been suffering for a long time,seeing a physical therapist at FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers of Hazleton can help you return to a more active and pain-free life.

or soft tissues surrounding the hip joint. Regardless of where the pain is stemming from, hip pain is typically caused by injury or strain to the joint or surrounding regions; however, the pain can also be due to an underlying disease, such as arthritis. If you are experiencing knee pain, there is a good chance the pain is rooted in your kneecap or patella. Every time you bend your knee, your kneecap needs enough space to move up and down between your femur bone and the bend of your knee. Unfortunately, if this area becomes inflamed, then the tissues surrounding the kneecap will become tighter, and the kneecap will not have as much space to move. It will try to squeeze through the inflamed padding, causing pain in the knee, and causing the padding to grow thicker and more irritated. When this happens, the joint fluid inside your knee will begin to dry out, resulting in more friction and pain. How physical therapy helps: When relieving knee and hip pain, it is important to make sure that normal motion is restored. Our physical therapists at FYZICAL are trained in evaluating your movement to determine the root of your problem, in addition to creating a treatment regimen specific to your pain, and restoring you to your normal mobility and strength. We have years of success in helping patients with their physical needs, eliminating their need for harmful drugs, expensive testing, or harsh surgeries. Our goal is to help you move and walk as comfortably as possible. Schedule a consultation with one of our physical therapists today and get back on track to a pain-free life!

4 Different Methods 1. (3) parts water to (1) part rubbing alcohol. This combination is recommended by physical therapists, because it is cheap, it stays flexible, and it works perfectly. There is also minimal mess if there is a leak! Win/win. 2. Corn syrup – Yup. Plain old corn syrup. This one is nice because it stays the most soft and flexible compared to the rest; however, if it were to leak, you’d be left with a sticky mess. 3. Liquid dish soap – You guessed it, another one-ingredient ice pack! This one doesn’t stay quite as flexible as the rest, but at least the mess won’t be sticky in the event of a leak. 4. (2) parts liquid dish soap to (1) part rubbing alcohol. This is very similar to the one above but stays a bit more flexible.

To minimize the risk of leaking after repeated uses, make sure to double bag your ice packs in sturdy freezer bags with a double-lock seal. If you have a vacuum bag sealer, this is the perfect use for it.

CHICKEN & MUSHROOM MARSALA

INGREDIENTS • 4 chicken breast cutlets • ½ tsp ground pepper • ¼ tsp kosher salt plus 1/8 tsp • ¼ cup all-purpose flour • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil • 8 oz cremini mushrooms

• 8 oz shiitake mushrooms • ½ cup chopped yellow onion • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves, plus more for garnish • ½ cup Marsala • ½ cup unsalted chicken broth • ½ tbsp butter

DIRECTIONS Season chicken with ¼ teaspoon each with pepper and salt. Place flour in a shallow dish and dredge the cutlets in it, pressing gently to fully coat.

Repeat with 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining cutlets. Cover to keep warm. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and creminis to the pan; cook, stirring occasionally until tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Add shiitakes to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally until tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to the bowl and season with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Add onion, thyme and the remaining ¼ teaspoon pepper to the pan; cook, stirring often, until the onion is translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Return the mushrooms to the pan.
