SUCCESSFUL PHYSICAL THERAPY TREATMENT FOR YOUR HIP, KNEE, & LEG There is a proven truth in the success of physical therapy for those suffering from hip, knee, and leg pain. Whether acute or chronic, pain in the lower extremities can be debilitating, posing challenging limits on daily life. Through our guided, conservative, and natural treatments, you will be provided with the close care you need in order to find relief, recover, and return to your daily life. At First Colony Aquatic and Rehabilitation Center, our goal is to help patients reach their optimum levels of physical function, in order to ultimately improve quality of life. For more information on how our services may benefit you in providing pain relief, healing, and future injury prevention, contact our office today. Evidence Supporting the Use of Physical Therapy for Hip, Knee, and Leg Pain Relief: One of the most important aspects of physical therapy treatments for those suffering from lower extremity pain or injury is an exercise program paired with manual techniques. Our physical therapists are movement experts who can provide you with the necessary

physical skills and techniques you need. This will aid in achieving a full and proper recovery. In fact, this is demonstrated in a 2017 study published by the National Institutes of Health , titled “Effectiveness of Manual Therapy Combined With Physical Therapy in Treatment of Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome: Systematic Review.” This study used randomized controlled trials to test the efficacy of manual and physical therapy treatments used in tandem with one another for patients with patellofemoral pain. The systematic review yielded positive results, verifying that manual and physical therapy treatments did indeed provide success in pain relief and improved function, especially with the strengthening of hip and knee muscles when applied to the full kinetic chain. While this study focuses primarily on patellofemoral pain, it can be applied to any discomfort felt in the hips, knees, or legs.

SUCCESS STORIES What Our Patients Have to Say

HEALTHY RECIPE: MIRACLE RED JUICE Health Benefits: Strengthens Your... Immunity, Eyes, Liver, Spleen, Kidneys, Pancreas, and Digestive Tract.

• 2 large beets • 4 long carrots

• 2 apples • 6 celery stalks

• 2 limes or lemons • 2 inches of ginger

Prepare beets, carrots, apples, celery, limes (or lemons) and ginger by chopping into smaller pieces before placing into a juicer. As the skin of a beet is packed with antioxidants and nutrients, it is recommended to leave the skin on the beet. Beet skin and lemon peel (if using) have strong flavors, so you could also prepare half with skin and half peeled to adjust to the flavor, or simply peel all if preferred. Apples can be any color or variety. Do not peel the ginger, which you will add to taste as ginger can be spicy. After all ingredients are added to the juicer, blend until juiced and smooth. Drink juice as soon as possible to obtain all benefits of the antioxidants and nutrients. Miracle Red Juice can be absorbed more easily on an empty stomach. Drink one glass every other day or as needed.
