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 can also be a sign of deeper problems which may later result in hip, knee or leg pain. Sometimes, inactivity can contribute to immobility—and later pain.

“From my initial contact until my last visit, my experience has been so good. My therapist and all the staff have been excellent. All are personable and very conducive to healing and recovery. Their enthusiasm was also encouraging. I’m extremely satisfied with my progress. I realize my continued healing will be determined by the amount of time I put into the home exercises I’ve been given.
