Health & Wellness The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body
Don’t Suffer With PAIN D o 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. The hip and knee joints are incredible marvels of 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 To determine the source of your leg pain our physical 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. If you are suffering with hip, knee or leg pain, call us today to learn more how we can eliminate your pain and put a spring back in your step! Look inside to learn more and say good-bye to that aching knee or hip!
Does Arthritis Pain Grind You Down?
Millions of Americans suffer through arthritis pain every day, taking Ibuprofen and stronger medication to numb the pain and address the ongoing inflammation. The definition of arthritis is joint inflammation, however the term has acquired a wider meaning. Arthritis is now used as a generic term for osteoarthritis and other conditions that affect joints. The pattern, severity and location of arthritis symptoms can vary depending on the specific form of the disease. Typically, arthritic conditions are characterized by pain and stiffness in and around one or more joints. The symptoms can develop gradually or suddenly. Certain rheumatic conditions can also involve the immune system and various internal organs of the body. Physical therapy is an important part of the ongoing treatment for arthritis. Physical therapy strengthens, stretches and stabilizes muscles surrounding affected joints providing needed support. Relieving Joint Pain Exercising is important to help reduce joint pain and stiffness. Light to moderate-intensity physical activity can actually prevent a decline in function, even restoring health. However, some people with arthritis may be reluctant to exercise because of joint pain after activity. You can take various steps to relieve pain, such as heat and cold therapy, or pain relievers, making it easier for you to exercise and stay active. In addition to physical therapy, choose non–impact exercises such as bicycling, swimming or water exercise. Furthermore, research shows that even modest weight loss combined with exercise is more effective in decreasing pain and restoring function than either weight loss or exercise alone. If you are suffering with arthritis pain, call us today and discover how we can relieve your pain, returning you to a more active, pain-free lifestyle!

Causes of Osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis has two classifications, primary or secondary. Where primary osteoarthritis has no understood cause, secondary osteoarthritis is caused by either an infection, disease, injury, or congenital deformity. Osteoarthritis or “OA” begins with the breakdown of smooth joint surfaces. When the cartilage breaks down, the bones may thicken and develop spurs along the surface. Bony deposits like spurs can significantly affect joint movement. Bits of bone and cartilage may float in the joint space causing limitation of joint movement. Treatment Appropriate treatment depends on review of multiple systems. Your age, medical history, symptoms, and overall health determine appropriate care. Severity of symptoms also play a major role in application of treatment. Reducing joint pain and stiffness are primary goals with treatment. Types of treatment include but are not limited to:
What Dr. McGann says about Osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis Defined Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It is a chronic degenerative joint disease that affects mainly middle-aged men and women. Osteoarthritis causes the breakdown of the smooth surface of your joints known as joint cartilage. It can occur in any joint, but mostly affects the extremities like the hands, knees, and hips.
