HIP, KNEE & LEG PAIN

Your hips, knees, and lower legs are tough—but injuries can happen to any of us. Your hips and knees are your largest joints, supporting your body’s weight when you’re moving around. They work in close coordination, giving us the mobility we need. Between injuries and normal aging processes, however, pain can sometimes flare up. If you’re experiencing hip, knee or leg pain, call us to schedule a closer look. WHAT CAUSES HIP, KNEE AND LEG PAIN? Hip, knee and leg pain are surprisingly common, and can come from a variety of factors. If you’re experiencing pain in any part of your leg, pinpointing the exact location of pain and being able to recall what you were doing when the pain started can help you determine the source of the pain. Several leading causes of hip, knee and leg pain include: • Sprains and strains • Tendonitis or Tendonopathy • Nerve inflammation from the low back WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS? Symptoms of leg pain can be varied. A decreased range of motion or stiffness in one or several joints of the lower

body may lead to pain over time. Reduced strength and joint awareness may also lead to a higher predisposition for injury or pain onset. These are impairments that are both treatable and preventable through physical therapy care. If you have been previously diagnosed with arthritis, there’s good news there too. Many folks have arthritis that shows up on an X-ray or MRI as they grow older, but not all of these folks have pain. Moreover, those that do have pain can often get good symptom improvement through mobility and strengthening exercises from physical therapy. That means that just because you have arthritis in an imaging report, it doesn’t mean you have to live in pain or commit to having surgery! If you experience any type of acute injury or trauma, substantial swelling, redness, obvious deformity, changes in hair growth around an area, or pain that is unrelenting or wakes you at night, those are times to touch base with your family medicine practitioner to rule out anything serious, such as a fracture, dislocation, cancer, or rheumatic disease. Fortunately, most lower body pain is musculoskeletal in nature and can be resolved within a few weeks’ time with a concerted physical therapy plan of care. Call us today if you’re suffering from leg pain - we’re here to help!

HOW PHYSICAL THERAPY CAN HELP

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 ongoing wellness. 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.

5 HEALTH BENEFITS OF SPRING CLEANING!

1. Allergy Symptom Reduction. A thorough cleaning can greatly reduce the amount of dust in your home, which is helpful considering about 20 million Americans are allergic to dust mites according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. A 2014 study by the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunity found that cleaning and decluttering your home can help you avoid allergy symptoms and make you feel more healthy. 2. Cleanliness Produces Happiness. Maybe you don’t enjoy the process of cleaning, but the end result will leave you smiling. A 2010 study found that having a clean home can improve your mood and reduce your risk of depression. Studies also show that doing housework for 20 minutes can reduce stress and anxiety by up to 20 percent. 3. Better Heart Health. If you’re looking for an easy way to support your heart health, just 30 minutes per day of light exercise (including low-intensity physical activities like household chores, vacuuming, mopping, and scrubbing floors) can decrease your risk of heart disease by 24 percent. 4. Declutter and Do a Good Deed by Donating. An essential part of a successful spring cleaning is getting rid of old items that are no longer used or worn. Apply the rule of thumb that if you haven’t made use of something in a year, it’s time for it to go. Fill bags and boxes of things, then donate them to a local charity so they can still be beneficial to someone else. Giving to others is an act that is associated with greater self-esteem, lower stress levels, and overall happiness. 5. Get a Better Night’s Sleep. Do you have trouble sleeping at night? In a recent poll, it was found that people who make their beds are 19 percent more likely to sleep well on a regular basis. Clean sheets with a fresh scent impacted 75 percent of those individuals polled. See what a difference spring cleaning can make by cleaning the clutter from your room and sleeping on some fresh sheets.
