WHAT CAUSES HI P , KNEE , AND LEG PAIN?

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. (continued inside)

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. What Are the Symptoms? 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. Call one of our professionals today at (501) 781-2701 and ask about your physical therapy options. Your mobility is important, and your pain can be treated.

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. Mayo Clinic has pinpointed several leading causes of hip, knee and leg pain. While many causes exist, the most likely are:

• Arthritis • Dislocation • Hip fracture • Sprains and strains

• Tendonitis • Pinched nerves • 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.

Did you know that October is National Physical Therapy month?

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 one of our providers today, and tell us about your symptoms.

That’s right, an entire month dedicated to educating people about the benefits of Physical Therapy—and it couldn’t come at a better time. Winter is one of the most trying times of the year for people struggling with chronic pain. Add the risk of falling due to icy conditions to the cold weather that aggravates even the mildest arthritis issue and you’ll find a huge increase of people who would benefit from pain management and support.

Take the time this month to start figuring out the most important things you need to know about the benefits and perks of physical therapy.

HAVE YOU MET YOUR INSURANCE DEDUCTIBLE?

Do you have a family insurance plan? Have you had surgery this year? Have you used your insurance more than usual? If you answered yes, you are more likely to have a $0 balance remaining on your out-of-pocket expenses. This means the cost could be minimal or completely covered by your insurance plan.

“I ’M FEELING STRONGER AND HEALTHIER OVERALL.”

“I started seeing Rob for chronic back and hip pain 3 months ago. Since he started working with me, my pain is greatly reduced. I’m feeling stronger and healthier overall. He hasn’t just treated my pain, he’s worked with me and taught me exercises that will hopefully strengthen me to the point that my chronic pain will be a thing of the past. Thank you, Rob!” - T.M.
