KICK BACK AND RELAX! RELIEF FOR YOUR KNEE & HIP PAIN IS HERE

Have you ever thought about how amazing our ability to walk is? It is a complex system of muscles, nerves, and joints working together in harmony to lift you up. But what if you experience pain while walking? If you experience hip, knee, or leg pain, it couldmean that the complex system of your gait has been effected in some way or another. For more information regarding howour treatments can help you, give us a call today! WhatCausesKneeandHipPain? Knee and hip pain occur when the joints andmuscles surrounding those areas lack their normal function. If the joint isn’t functioning properly, it can alter one’smobility, whichwill increase pressure on the area. This can cause

the area to become inflamed, thus resulting in pain. If you are experiencing hip pain, it is likely that there is a problem with your hip joint. When this happens, you will experience pain inside of your hip, or in your groin area. If you are experiencing pain outside of your hip, in your upper thigh, or buttock region, then it is likely that there is a problem with themuscles, tendons, ligaments, or soft tissues surrounding the hip joint. Regardless of where the pain is stemming from, hip pain is typically caused by injury or strain to the joint or surrounding regions; however, the pain can also be due to an underlying disease, such as arthritis.

RELIEF FOR YOUR KNEE & HIP PAIN IS HERE (Continued) If you are experiencing knee pain, there is a good chance the pain is rooted in your kneecap or patella. Every time you bend your knee, your kneecap needs enough space to move up and down between your femur bone and the bend of your knee. Unfortunately, if this area becomes inflamed, then the tissues surrounding the kneecap will become tighter, and the kneecap will not have as much space to move. It will try to squeeze through the inflamed padding, causing pain in the knee, and causing the padding to grow thicker and more irritated. When this happens, the joint fluid inside your knee will begin to dry out, resulting in more friction and pain.

Try These Diy Ice Packs When Your Joints Are Burning After All That Walking: 4 Different Methods 1. 3 partswater to 1 part rubbing alcohol. This combination is recommended by physical therapists, because it is cheap, it stays flexible, and it works perfectly. There is also minimal mess if there is a leak! Win/win. 2. Corn syrup – Yup. Plain old corn syrup. This one is nice because it stays the most soft and flexible compared to the rest; however, if it were to leak, you’d be left with a sticky mess. 3. Liquid dish soap. You guessed it, another one-ingredient ice pack! This one doesn’t stay quite as flexible as the rest, but at least the mess won’t be sticky in the event of a leak. 4. 2 parts liquid dish soap to 1 part rubbing alcohol. This is very similar to the one above but stays a bit more flexible.

“I would like to take this time to thank you and your staff for the excellent treatment I received while going to Orthosports. I made considerable progress while adhering to the treatment program you laid out for me. I came to your establishment barely able to bend my leg, and with the threat of another surgery if I could not increase flexibility in my knee. The therapy regime that you designed has restored the motion in my leg, as well as strengthened the entire knee. Although I still have some work to do before I can do all the things that I formally did, I am very pleased with my progress. I owe it all to Orthosports and would highly recommend Orthosports to anyone who has suffered a serious leg injury and requires therapy. Again, I thank you immensely.” - J.
