The goal of any physical therapy program is to restore range of motion and improve flexibility and strength while reducing the general experience of pain. Unfortunately, hip and knee injuries often tend to linger. Every movement relies so heavily on the hips and knees that it makes it difficult to allow these joints to actually rest following an injury. Physical therapy provides targeted exercises that support the joints with precise movements that help reinforce strength and range of motion. For more information, contact your physical therapist to learn more about options that will suit your health needs. If are suffering from hip or knee pain, don't wait to get pain relief!

Areyoumoving likeyoushouldbe?Yourhipsandkneesareessential toeveryday movement; whether you are sitting, standing, walking or running, you need your hips and knees in great shape. Sometimes, when your hips and knees are in pain, it can cause you to change the way that you are moving, causing you to change the flow and pace of your gait, which is the way that you walk. Other times, prolonged pain can cause you to stop doing movements that are indicative of healthy joints. If you’ve experienced any hip or knee pain and are considering whether physical therapy is a good choice for your health needs, consider the following: • From a standing position, are you able to lean over and touch your toes? If so, then this indicates that you have proper hip and low back flexibility. If not, then you may need to improve your flexibility and joint range of motion, and physical therapy could be helpful. • Inasittingposition,canyoucomfortablycrossyour legs, leavingyourankle to rest comfortably on the opposite knee?

ATHLETE SUCCESS SPOTLIGHT

"At 72 years old, I’m much more flexible than most people my age... I’m relying on staff at Rebound Fitness to help keep me moving for many more years!"

RONNIS OHER "I have been coming to Rebound Fitness for more than 15 years. I started with Greg as my athletic trainer. Right from the start, he was concerned that my heart rate got elevated very quickly and made me seek medical help for it. With that under control, I began to work out in earnest. Greg has seen me through back issues, shoulder issues, and knee issues, referring me to medical professionals when necessary. At 72 years old, I’m much more flexible than most people my age. I’m a competitive ballroom dancer, and I attribute my ability to move my body so well in part to the exercise and training I have received from Rebound Fitness. I always say, “You have to keep moving if you want to keep moving.” I’m relying on staff at Rebound Fitness to help keep me moving for many more years!"
