Whether you have hurt your hip or have been suffering for a long time, seeing a physical therapist at Edge Physical Therapy can help you return to a more active and pain-free life. Give us a call today:

Your hips, knees, and lower legs are tough—but injuries happen. Your hips and knees are your largest joints, supporting your body’s weight. They work in close coordination, giving us the mobility we need. Between arthritis, injuries and age, however, pain can flare up. If you’re experiencing hip, knee or leg pain, call us to schedule a closer look. Before you do, however, let’s examine the pain itself. What Causes Hip, Knee and Leg Pain? Hip, knee and leg pain are surprisingly common.Thus, their source can come from a variety of things. If you’re experiencing pain in any part of your leg, pinpointing the exact spot can help you determine the cause. Edge PhysicalTherapy has pinpointed several leading causes of hip, knee and leg pain. While many causes exist, the most likely are: • Arthritis

• Osteoporosis • Cancer

While some causes are more severe than others, a physician can identify each. As the body ages, joints become inflamed. Cartilage may wear down, reducing the “buffer” between bones. In some cases, limited blood flow may cause bone tissue death, or necrosis. If you’re experiencing redness, inflammation and immobilized joints, the condition may be severe.

• Dislocation • Hip fracture • Sprains and strains • Tendonitis • Pinched nerves

While leg pain is noticeable by a slew of symptoms, several stick out. Aching or stiffness around the hip, groin, back or thigh may be a sign of deeper problems. A decreased range of motion can also be a sign of deeper problems which may later result in hip, knee or leg pain. Sometimes, inactivity can contribute to immobility—and later pain. If you’re limping, lurching or are experiencing bad balance, contact a physician. While some hip, knee and leg pains go away, those lasting longer than several months may be hinting at a deeper issue. How Physical Therapy Can Help In many cases, physical therapy can help patients increase leg mobility. In doing so, they can stretch, flex and strengthen the muscles responsible for support. If a joint appears deformed, or if sudden swelling occurs, contact a physician immediately. A good physical therapy program can assist with post-operation treatment, too. If you’ve undergone treatment for osteoporosis, dislocation or a fracture, your therapist can help you reclaim full mobility—and a healthy lifestyle. From start to finish, we’re dedicated to your ongoing wellness. On every level, physical therapy serves to enhance the patient’s quality of life. We’re here to help, and we have years of experience backing every therapy option. Contact us today, and tell us about your symptoms.

“The staff is the greatest feature!” “In 2012, I had my second major heart attack and open-heart surgery. I went through the hospital’s rehab program and then spent several months in their wellness program. When their wellness program closed last year, we (my wife and I) heard about Edge and several other wellness programs. After several weeks researching programs, we joined the Hollow Brook Edge Wellness Program. The first thing that impressed me was that the Edge Wellness Coach asked me what my specific wellness objectives were and then worked with me for several months to develop a custom program tailored to my specific objectives. We’ve been in the Edge Wellness Program for over a year, and we frankly love the program. Not only is it meeting our wellness objectives, we look forward to every session and have thoroughlyenjoyed the totalexperience.The facility iscleanandalwaysworking.The equipment is comprehensive and well-maintained, and the coaches are genuinely caring and extremely competent folks. I think the staff is the greatest feature of the program and would not hesitate to recommend this program to others. We have fun when we participate and feel very good about ourselves as we improve our health and wellness.” - Joseph R.
