Who Wants to Walk AGA IN Without Pain? Your ability to walk is an amazing and very complicated system of muscles, nerves and joints working in harmony. If you suffer from back, hip, knee or leg pain the normal movement of this complicated system has been affected in one way or another. Knee and Hip Pain
Knee or hip pain can occur for many reasons, but it is due to a mechanical problem, meaning that the joint and muscles supporting it are not functioning properly. Even though a person has arthritis in their joint, it doesn’t mean that they will have pain from it. Only when the joint doesn’t move properly and pressures increase above normal, does pain and inflammation begin. Many knee problems come from poor tracking of the kneecap. The kneecap has to move up and down in a groove of the femur bone when you bend your knee. The kneecap gets its cushioning and support from fat pads that sit right underneath it. When the tissue around the kneecap becomes tighter, the kneecap presses into the fat pads, making them irritated and thicker over time. This affects the normal flow of joint fluid around the inside of the knee, drying out the lubrication of the knee over time, causing a downward spiral of friction and pain.
A Simple Solution
An easy way to relieve knee pain is to actually ensure that normal kneecap motion is restored. Our physical therapy experts evaluate the true cause of your knee pain, treat the movement problem and restore the normal strength around the knee. We have years of training to analyze the movement of your body and pinpoint the source of your problem. This allows for accurate treatment without the need for elaborate and expensive testing. Ultimately, your knee pain will be relieved quickly and your ability to walk, run and squat restored! In addition, we work closely with your physician and if you have had surgery, help you have a fast recovery.

I am able to sleep! Success Story: - E.G
When I first came to this clinic I was scared and in a lot of pain. My first visit, my therapist was able to tell me what was wrong and what needs to be done. I had a bad knee sprain which caused a lot of limping and pain. Within 10 visits the people at iMotion had me walking normal again with minimal to no pain. I can kneel, bend, squat, stretch and stand up with
no problem. For that I am very grateful.”

Injury Tips Do it Yourself Ice Packs 2 Different Methods 1. (3) parts water to (1) part rubbing alcohol. This is recommended by physical therapists, it is cheap, it works perfectly, stays flexible, least mess if there is a leak, and really inexpensive. 2. (2) parts liquid dish soap to (1) part rubbing alcohol. This stays a little more flexible than plain liquid dish soap, but otherwise it is the same.
To minimize the risk of leaking after repeated uses, make sure to double bag them in sturdy freezer bags with a double lock seal just to be sure. If you have a vacuum bag sealer, this is the perfect use for it.
