Leave Knee & Hip PAIN BEHIND YOU
Do you find it difficult to walk, run, or exercise, as if your knees may collapse underneath you? Are you experiencing sharp pains in your hips and knees that make daily tasks difficult? Does standing up after a lengthy amount of time pose as a challenging feat? If so, physical therapy can help. Constant hip and knee pains can greatly hinder your daily life. The efficiency of your walk comes from the effectiveness of your flexibility, strength, and balance. When any of these aspects become abnormal, it may cause joints to become strained and work harder than they usually need to, leading to pain in the knees and hips. Physical therapy is an easy, comfortable, and safe way to both identify and relieve pain. If you are suffering from knee or hip pain, contact FYZICAL today for relief! Correcting your knee and hip pains with PT treatments: At FYZICAL, our licensed physical therapists are movement experts. They will analyze how you walk in order to determine any abnormalities and to pinpoint stiff or weak muscles. By pinpointing the exact areas of your body that are not moving as they should, they are able to create a treatment plan that will improve your strength, coordination, and overall mobility. Physical therapy has been proven as one of the most effective treatment methods for knee and hip injuries. This has been demonstrated through several research-based studies, including a 2014 study published by the Journal of American Medical Association. The study, titled “Effect of a Home-Based Exercise Program on Functional Recovery Following
Rehabilitation After Hip Fracture,” focuses on the benefits of exercise programs for those recovering from hip fractures. In this study, patients were split into two groups. The intervention group received “functionally oriented exercises (such as standing from a chair, climbing a step) taught by a physical therapist and performed independently by the participants in their homes for 6 months,” while the other group simply received education on cardiovascular nutrition and recovery. Results from this study concluded that those participating in the in-home physical therapy exercise programs demonstrated “modest improvement in physical function at 6 months after randomization.” Foot Levelers: Need more assistance in regaining mobility?

ARE YOU MOVING CORRECTLY?
If you are suffering from knee or hip pain, it is important to make sure you contact a physical therapist as soon as possible.
However, there are also some tests you can do on your own before your consultation – these simple tests can help you determine if your knees and hips are as flexible and strong as they should be. Practice caution when performing these tests with a painful knee or hip, and do not continue them if they cause your pain to worsen:
• When you are standing, can you touch your toes? This indicates hip and low back flexibility.
• When sitting down, can you comfortably cross your legs so your ankle is resting on the opposite knee? Does one knee go further down than the other? This indicates hip flexibility. If one hip is tighter than the other, it can impact the way you walk and can cause knee pain. • Keeping your feet flat on the floor while holding onto something solid, how far can you squat down? You should be able to squat all the way down so your buttocks almost touches your heels. Don’t let your heels pop up! If you favor movement to one side, you probably have hip weakness on that side or limited motion in the hip joint. • Standing near a counter top, put one foot in front of the other so you are touching heel-to-toe. Without putting your hands down, see if you can balance for 10 seconds. If you cannot, this may mean you have trouble with the coordination DEEP TISSUE LASER THERAPY In medicine, lasers allow surgeons to work at high levels of precision by focusing on a small area, damaging less of the surrounding tissue.

PATIENT SUCCESS SPOTLIGHT
My knees don’t hurt and I’m not short of breath anymore. “Thank you Carly Hess. Not only am I winning the battle, I amwinning the war! For years I have suffered with knee pain and was certain I was going to have to have surgery. I made an appointment at Adams Physical Therapy in January 2020 to see what I could do to prevent this. After six weeks, I completed therapy and I won’t be having surgery. One goal realized. My next goal was to learn how to exercise properly and lose some weight. I have always tried to do it on my own. I would give up because I wasn’t seeing results and was not motivated and I wasn’t doing it correctly. Carly has helped me with my workouts. With her coaching and encouragement, I have lost over 60 lbs since January. My knees don’t hurt and I’m not short of breath anymore. I feel great! Thank you so much, Carly. You’re the best trainer ever.” - Steve S.
