Hips, Knees, & Ankles
Our legs are made of ligaments, bones, muscles, and other connective tissues which provides a lot of opportunity for pain or injuries.
Ensuring that the leg muscles are strong, mobile, and flexible offers you the best chance at avoiding injuries and pain.
Because the entirety of the leg is connected by tendons, ligaments, and tissues, having one pain or injury can quickly lead to additional injuries or pain. For example, ankle pain/injuries can quickly lead to knee and hip issues if left untreated. We recommend seeking medical advice as soon as possible to best avoid worsening of the injury or pain.
Physical therapy for leg pain, injuries, or surgeries typically consists of the following goals:
- Regain strength & improve range of motion
- Reduce pain, swelling, & inflammation
- Improve balance & decrease unsteadiness
- Improve overall movement, body mechanics, & flexibility
