SUFFERING WITH LOWER EXTREMITY PAIN?
We Help Identify and Correct Leg Pain
Lower extremity pain is very common. Think of how much time we spend walking and using our legs! If there is joint or muscle imbalance, we start to see a breakdown followed by symptoms such as pain, numbness, or burning. Our goal is to identify the problem, relieve symptoms, and correct the movement to prevent re-occurrence or additional breakdown.
Similar in structure to the shoulder, our hip is a ball-and-socket joint designed to move! Often times our hips become tight or dysfunctional resulting in decreased mobility and abnormal muscle function. This means that there is a greater potential for pain or injury. Poor functioning hips can also lead to nerve irritation/inflammation (sciatic-like symptoms) and even back pain.
Our goal is to improve hip function through correct movement and muscle activation. If you have been suffering with hip or buttock pain, come in for a free consult to determine if treatment is right for you.
Common Causes of Hip Pain:
Tendinopathy - commonly pain right near bone with muscle use
Impingement - worse with end-range positions
Bursitis - inflamed and tender to touch; swelling
Degeneration - Arthritis
Many people are "knee-dominant," and place to much pressure and use on the front of the knee. If you climb stairs and feel more activity in the knee and quads (compared to glutes and hamstrings) you are probably knee-dominant. Overtime, this can lead to degeneration and knee problems which become much more severe. It is very important to ensure normal knee function so they don't breakdown and become dysfunctional.
Common Causes of Knee Pain:
ACL, MCL, LCL, PCL
Meniscus injury or impingement
Arthritis / Degeneration
Sciatica (radiating pain behind knee)
Patellar (knee cap) Dysfunction
The foot and ankle work together, providing both stability and mobility to allow us to stand, walk, jump, and run. There are several joints, ligaments and tendons in this area, any of which can become involved based on certain conditions. The ankle is one of the most commonly sprained joints in the body. We provide treatment designed to speed up healing, improve future function and prevent re-occurrence (it is very common to re-sprain joints).
Common Causes of Foot Pain:
Sprain / Strain
