Doyousuffer fromback,kneeorhippain? It ispossibleyoumayhaveosteoarthritis in those joints.Osteoarthritis(OA) is themostcommonconditionof the joints,affectingapproximately 27 million Americans. With OA, there is a breakdown in the cartilage covering the ends of bones.As thecartilagewearsaway, thebonesbecomeexposedand rubagainsteachother. The deterioration of cartilage also affects the shape and makeup of the joint so that it no longer functions smoothly. The ligaments and tendons around the joint become stiff and the muscles that support the joint become weak. This leads to even more painful rubbing of the joint surfaces. There are many studies and patient success stories promoting the effectivenessofphysical therapy forosteoarthritis.Ourexpert therapistsatKinetixPhysical Therapy are trained specifically in treating patients suffering from osteoarthritis and work to obtain optimal results. Study Shows How to Relieve OA Pain In a medical study, 83 patients with osteoarthritis were assigned to receive either hands- on physical therapy (treatment group) or a pill that actually did nothing to help their pain without them knowing (placebo group). Tests were done to measure how well the people were doing 4 weeks, 8 weeks and 1 year later. The results were very impressive with the patients whohadhands-on physical therapy combinedwith gentle, specificexercises.They showed significant improvements in their pain, mobility and function. By 8 weeks, patients were able to walk further and faster with much less, or completely resolved pain.Their joint stiffness, aches and mobility had improved by 55% as compared to the group who had no treatment. At one year, patients in the treatment group still were doing great in terms of less pain and more mobility. Other benefits included less need for surgery with only 5% of patients in the treatment group having undergone surgery as compared to 20% with the placebo group. If you are suffering from osteoarthritis, our physical therapy treatments relieve your pain. Isn’t it time you did something about your pain and movement?

“6 EASY TIPS TO HELP YOUR ARTHRITIS PAIN!” When it comes to treating arthritis, you may have more options than you realize. There is a lot you can do to reduce your aches and pains from arthritis, while gaining more mobility and function.

People often experience pain from arthritis because of stiff joints, muscles and other tissues. In addition, muscles become weak, therefore not supporting the arthritic joints. Our customized physical therapy treatments promote muscle strength, improve range of motion, increase mobility and ease pain. Coupling your treatments with the following can also help you live life to the fullest and get you back to doing the things you love: 1. Education and self-management When your treatment is over, our experts will have equipped you with the knowledge and exercises you need to continue your progress on your own or by joining our new Wellness Program. 2. Weight loss Maintaining your recommended weight or losing weight if you are overweight can lessen your pain by reducing stress on your affected joints. Weight loss specifically helps ease pressure on weight-bearing joints such as the hips and knees. 3. Footwear and insoles If arthritis affects your knee, special footwear and insoles can reduce pain and improve walking. 4. Knee braces For osteoarthritis with associated knee instability, a knee brace can reduce pain, improve stability and reduce the risk of falling.

5. Heat and cold Many people find the heat of a warm bath, heat pack or paraffin bath eases arthritis pain. Others find relief in cold packs. Still others prefer alternating the two. Learn more about what can work best for you by talking to our Kinetix Physical Therapy specialists. 6. Exercise Exercise has been proven to help reduce arthritis pain while increasing strength and function. Knowing the right kind of exercises to do is the key. Talking with our physical therapists will point you in the right direction. There is a lot that you can do to relieve the pain from arthritis and protect your joints for the long-term.

Gaspacho Recipe Ingredients • 1 1/2 pounds vine-ripened tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped • Tomato juice • 1 cup cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper • 1/2 cup chopped red onion • 1 small jalapeno, seeded and minced

• 1 medium garlic clove, minced • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil • 1 lime, juiced • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce • 1/2 teaspoon toasted, ground cumin • 1 teaspoon kosher salt • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper • 2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, chiffonade

Directions Fill a 6-quart pot halfway full of water, set over high heat and bring to a boil. Drop the tomatoes into the boiling water for 15 seconds, remove and transfer to an ice bath and allow to cool for approximately 1 minute. Remove and pat dry. Peel, core and seed the tomatoes. When seeding the tomatoes, place the seeds and pulp into a fine mesh strainer set over a bowl in order to catch the juice. Press as much of the juice through as

possible and then add enough bottled tomato juice to bring the total to 1 cup. Place the tomatoes and juice into a large mixing bowl. Add the cucumber, bell pepper, red onion, jalapeno, garlic clove, olive oil, lime juice, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire, cumin, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Transfer 1 1/2 cups of the mixture to a blender and puree for 15 to 20 seconds on high speed. Return the pureed mixture to the bowl and stir to combine. Cover and chill for 2 hours and up to overnight. Serve with chiffonade of basil. Recipe courtesy of Alton Brown, 2007
