Have you ever thought about how amazing our ability to walk is? It is a complex system of muscles, nerves, and joints working together in harmony to lift you up. But what if you experience pain while walking? If you experience hip, knee, or leg pain, it could mean that the complex system of your gait has been effected in some

way or another. (continued inside)

Kick Back and Relax! Find Relief for Your Knee & Hip Pain NEWSLETTER

(continued from outside)

What causes knee and hip pain? Knee and hip pain occur when the joints and muscles surrounding those areas lack their normal function. If the joint isn’t functioning properly, it can alter one’s mobility, which will increase pressure on the area. This can cause the area to become inflamed, thus resulting in pain. If you are experiencing hip pain, it is likely that there is a problem with your hip joint. When this happens, you will experience pain inside of your hip, or in your groin area. If you are experiencing pain outside of your hip, in your upper thigh, or buttock region, then it is likely that there is a problem with the muscles, tendons, ligaments, or soft tissues surrounding the hip joint. Regardless of where the pain is stemming from, hip pain is typically caused by injury or strain to the joint or surrounding regions; however, the pain can also be due to an underlying disease, such as arthritis. If you are experiencing knee pain, there is a good chance the pain is rooted in your kneecap or patella. Every time you bend your knee, your kneecap needs enough space to move up and down between your femur bone and the bend of your knee. Unfortunately, if this area becomes

inflamed, then the tissues surrounding the kneecap will become tighter, and the kneecap will not have as much space to move. It will try to squeeze through the inflamed padding, causing pain in the knee, and causing the padding to grow thicker and more irritated. When this happens, the joint fluid inside your knee will begin to dry out, resulting in more friction and pain. How physical therapy helps: When relieving knee and hip pain, it is important to make sure that normal motion is restored. Our physical therapists at FYZICAL are trained in evaluating your movement to determine the root of your problem, in addition to creating a treatment regimen specific to your pain, and restoring you to your normal mobility and strength. We have years of success in helping patients with their physical needs, eliminating their need for harmful drugs, expensive testing, or harsh surgeries. Our goal is to help you move and walk as comfortably as possible.

DIY Ice Packs For Your Joint Pain!

4 Different Methods 1. (3) parts water to (1) part rubbing alcohol – This combination is recommended by physical therapists, because it is cheap, it stays flexible, and it works perfectly. There is also minimal mess if there is a leak! Win/win. 2. Corn syrup – Yup. Plain old corn syrup. This one is nice because it stays the most soft and flexible compared to the rest; however, if it were to leak, you’d be left with a sticky mess. 3. Liquid dish soap – You guessed it, another one-ingredient ice pack! This one doesn’t stay quite as flexible as the rest, but at least the mess won’t be sticky in the event of a leak.

4. (2) parts liquid dish soap to (1) part rubbing alcohol – This is very similar to the one above but stays a bit more flexible.

To minimize the risk of leaking after repeated uses, make sure to double bag your ice packs in sturdy freezer bags with a double-lock seal. If you have a vacuum bag sealer, this is the perfect use for it.

FYZICAL EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOPS

Patient Success Spotlight

Hi FYZICAL Family,

“I’ve had physical therapy off and on with numerous good therapists for 45 years for back problems, but I’ve never achieved the improvements nor learned more to help me going forward than recently with the staff of FYZICAL. I especially enjoyed the detailed training on various pieces of gym equipment, as I now realize many things I’ve tried to do previously have been detrimental. I’m much better prepared to deal with my condition going forward than I ever imagined was possible. Thanks for your help!!” - G.T. “I’m much better prepared to deal with my condition going forward than I ever imagined was possible.”

We are invested in your health and we want to bring true value to you and your family. We are introducing a series of FREE live educational workshops.
