FINDING THE SOURCE TO YOUR HIP, KNEE & LEG PAIN

• Finding The INSIDE: Source of Your LegPain • Patient Success Spotlight • What’s Causing My Joint Pain?

Do you suffer from knee, hip or leg pain? You are not alone. CDC studies show that 30% of adults have reported some form of knee, hip or ankle joint stiffness or pain in a 30 day period. Thehipandknee jointsare incrediblemarvelsof the human body. At times they have to withstand up to 6 times your body weight in force.The knee joint is the second most complicated joint in the body and has to move in many directions including forward, backward, side to side and rotation.These different movements are called accessory motions and are needed for normal walking, running and bending. When you experience pain in the side of the hip, groin, thigh or knee, you may have difficulty with these accessory motions. Prolonged sitting, injuries, arthritis and disease can affect accessory motions. With every day use, tissues around the hip and knee joints tighten, leading to a gradual loss of motion. This causes a lot of pressure to build up on specific parts of the joints. When Your Motion is Lost When you lose the movement of the hip, knee or ankle joints, your muscles have to take on the abnormal strain. This leads to common aches and pains experienced by millions of people. Many people feel that medication will help solve their hip, knee or leg pain. While medication can help to decrease inflammation and pain, it cannot address the root cause of the problem. Most pain in the

hip, thigh, knee or leg comes from poor flexibility, strength or coordination. Treating Leg Pain Todeterminethesourceofyour legpainourphysical therapists examine your walking, squatting, joint movement, comparing the strength and mobility of the joints. A comprehensive treatment plan, including special hands on techniques, is made to achieve the fastest relief and the longest lasting results.
