Do you struggle to walk without pain? FINDING THE SOURCE TO YOUR HIP, KNEE & LEG PAIN

Do you suffer from knee, hip or leg pain? You are not alone. CDC studies show that 30% of adults have reported some form of knee, hip or ankle joint stiffness or pain in a 30 day period. The hip and knee joints are incredible marvels of the human body. At times they have to withstand up to 6 times your body weight in force. The knee joint is the second most complicated joint in the body and has to move in many directions including forward, backward, and side to side. 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. WHEN YOUR MOTION IS LOST When you lose the movement of the hip, knee or ankle joints, your muscles have to take on the abnormal strain. This leads to common aches and pains experienced by millions of people. Many people feel that medication will help solve their hip, knee or leg pain. While medication can help to decrease inflammation and pain, it cannot address the root cause of the problem. Most pain in the hip, thigh, knee or leg comes from poor flexibility, strength or coordination. TREATING LEG PAIN To determine the source of your leg pain, our physical therapists examine your walking, squatting, joint movement, comparing the strength and mobility of the joints. A comprehensive treatment plan, including special hands-on techniques, is made to achieve the fastest relief and the longest lasting results. If you are suffering with hip, knee or leg pain, call us today to learn more how we can eliminate your pain and put a spring back in your step!

Paramjit (P.J.) Popli, PT & Eleanor E.

“They have an excellent at home therapy program.” “I would like to share with you the improvement in mobility that I have seen in my father’s condition. Before he began physical therapy, it was very painful for him to get in and out of my Honda Civic He also used to have difficulty climbing stairs and walking. In a short few weeks after beginning Physical Therapy with Paramjit, he has shown great improvement in getting in and out of the car. Now, I take him to the mall, and he loves walking around and looking at the lights and different displays. The physical therapy service provided by Arrow at home is a great help, as it saves me time taking him to the office for physical therapy. They have an excellent at home therapy program, and the physical therapist is very patient with my dad as he suffers from dementia and needs extra help. I highly recommend the at home physical therapy provided by Arrow. I look forward to the summer time as I will be able to take my father outdoors and enjoy other summer activities with him. Thank you Arrow and Paramjit for providing excellent and caring service.” - Caroline (A grateful daughter)

DOES ARTHRITIS PAIN GRINDYOU DOWN? Discover The Key Treatments To Reduce Joint Pain and Stiffness

Millions of Americans suffer through arthritis pain every day, taking Ibuprofen and stronger medication to numb the pain and address the ongoing inflammation. The definition of arthritis is joint inflammation, however the term has acquired a wider meaning. Arthritis is now used as a generic term for osteoarthritis and other conditions that affect joints. The pattern, severity and location of arthritis symptoms can vary depending on the specific form of the disease. Typically, arthritic conditions are characterized by pain and stiffness in and around one or more joints. The deterioration of cartilage can cause a grinding in the affected joints which can be very painful and debilitating. The symptoms can develop gradually or suddenly. Certain rheumatic conditions can also involve the immune systemand various internal organs of the body. Relieving Joint Pain Exercising is important to help reduce joint pain and stiffness. Light to moderate-intensity physical activity can actually prevent a decline in function, even restoring health. However, some people with

arthritis may be reluctant to exercise because of joint pain after activity. You can take various steps to relieve pain, such as heat and cold therapy, making it easier for you to exercise and stay active. In addition to physical therapy, choose non–impact exercises such as bicycling, swimming or water exercise. Furthermore, research shows that even modest weight loss combined with exercise is more effective in decreasing pain and restoring function than either weight loss or exercise alone. Physical therapy is an important part of the ongoing treatment for arthritis. At Arrow Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation, our therapists find the root cause of your pain and put you on the track to feeling better. We work with you one on one to ensure your recovery and maintain your mobility. Our physical therapy strengthens and stretches muscles surrounding affected joints, providing needed support. If you are suffering with arthritis pain, call us today and discover how we can relieve your pain, returning you to a more active, pain-free lifestyle!
