FINDING RELIEF Your hips, knees, and lower legs 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 mobility we 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. What Causes Hip, Knee and Leg Pain? 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. Mayo Clinic has pinpointed several leading causes of hip, knee and leg pain. While many causes exist, the most likely are: SAY “HELLO AGAIN” TO PAIN-FREE KNEES & HIPS
Hip and knee pain does not have to arise from sports injuries. People can suffer from hip and knee pain due to normal wear and tear and arthritis. A physiotherapist can help to determine where the pain can be coming from and you don’t even need to see a doctor first. What Are the Symptoms? 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. 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.

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.

Your physiotherapist will customize a treatment plan to address areas of stiffness, weakness, tightness, and pain. On every level, physiotherapy serves to enhance the patient’s quality of life.

Walking Lunge Stand comfortably with your feet shoulder width apart. Take a large step forward with one leg, keeping your back foot in starting position while rolling onto your toes. Keep your spine straight and your forward and back knees bent, so that you make right angles with your hip, knee, and ankle. As you lunge, you should feel a stretch across the front of the hip and thigh. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat 2-5 times. EXERCISE ESSENTIALS Use This Exercise to Keep You Moving
When you experience severe pain after sustaining an injury, it is usually the result of a restricted joint. Our physiotherapists are specially trained to mobilize restricted joints by applying pressure at a low velocity. Mobilization techniques are safe, effective, and painless, allowing for an increase in your range of motion, and the improvement of the restricted joint’s mobility. Joint issues are often the hidden underlying factors driving other types of injuries and ailments. We strongly encourage you to consult with a physiotherapist with any type of acute or chronic dysfunction. Your joints could be contributing to your pain without you even realizing it! How Can I Benefit from Joint Mobilization? A joint can become irritated, swollen,ormisalignedasaresult of injury, stress, poor posture, repetitive movement, or even as a result of age-related wear and tear. When this happens, the joint may not move correctly and become stiff and painful. Nearby structures including muscles, tendons, and ligaments may become tense or injured as a compensatory effect of trying to support or stabilize the injured joint. This can lead to muscle weakness or even impingement and damage to nearby nerves. If you come with acute or chronic joint pain, we will assess and evaluate everything from your range of motion, strength, coordination, pain level, posture, and even relative tissue tension and feel inorder tohelpusdevise an accurate diagnosis. Based on exam findings and information about your current and past medical history, we’ll be able to devise a customized treatment plan to meet your unique needs. Jointmobilizationtechniqueshave been shown to be effective for a variety of conditions. JOINT MOBILIZATION Featured Service
