Life Doesn't Have To Stop When The Pain Starts

“Life Doesn’t Have To StopWhen The Pain Starts.” Try these 4 simple tests, with caution, to see if you need physical therapy to fix your hip, knee and leg pain.

4. Standing near a counter top put one foot in front of the other so that you are touching heel to toe. Without putting your hands down, see if you can balance for 10 seconds, keeping yourself steady. If you cannot, then you have trouble with the coordination of your balance from the nerve endings in your hip, knees, ankles and feet. Restoring Normal Pain Free Motion Restoring normal motion is key to alleviating pain and allowing you to do the activities you love to do safely. Physical therapy is the key to restoring normal joint and muscle motion. Our medical experts pinpoint the key problem areas that you may not even be aware of and focus on a custom treatment plan that will restore your normal pain- free motion. Performing at Your Best Whether you are just out for a walk or an avid athlete, we can help you walk, run and play better. With our motion analysis, strength testing, coordination testing and more, we can spot your muscles and joints that need more flexibility, strength or coordination. A specific training and treatment plan is then put together to help you reach your peak movement with the least effort.

Can you do these simple tests to see if your hips and legs are as flexible and strong as they should be? Try them for yourself and let us know how you did. Use caution and common sense when attempting these tests; do not continue if they cause pain or discomfort.  Do not attempt if you have had a hip replacement. 1. From standing, can you touch your toes? This indicates hip and low back flexibility. 2. In sitting can you comfortably cross your legs so that your ankle is resting on the other knee? Does one knee go further down than the other? This indicates hip flexibility. If one hip is tighter than theother, itcanwreckhavocwithyour walking and even cause knee pain. 3. Keeping your feet flat on the floor and holding onto something solid, how far can you squat down? You should be able to squat all the way downsoyourbuttocksalmost touchesyourheels. Don’t let your heels pop up! If you favor movement to one side, you probably have hip weakness on that side or limited motion in the hip joint.
