When you walk, run, and move, your hip and knee work together to allow you to move fluidly and accurately. When one of these joints and the associated muscle groups that make them move are not working properly pain can occur in different parts of the leg. Hip pain can leave you with very limited movement and make walking painful. This pain may radiate to the groin, buttock, or thigh.
Our expert physical therapists at Nebraska Orthopaedic Physical Therapy understand the complexities of hip movement and function. We examine your walking, movement, range of motion, strength, and coordination. Our evaluations enable us to pinpoint the source of your pain and develop a series of manual therapies and exercises to reduce your pain and restore normal function. Call us today to learn more!
Knee pain is a very common condition affecting millions of Americans. Many people experience knee pain as a result of knee arthritis or sports injuries. At Nebraska Orthopaedic Physical Therapy, we work closely with you to evaluate the mechanics of your knees and their relationship to your physical condition and performance. Limitations in movement and strength can dramatically affect the way your knee functions, causing increased pressure and pain. Ignoring knee pain may cause changes in your gait, resulting in hip and back pain. Physical therapy restores the normal movement, strength, and coordination and can help you quickly relieve pain and get back to normal activities.
