Extremity pain is defined as any kind of pain that is experienced in the upper or lower limb/extremity. The lower extremity starts from the hip while the upper extremity starts from the shoulder. Extremity pain has all sorts of causes and triggers. They include:
- Sports injuries
- Wear and tear
- Joint injuries
- Poor postural alignment
- Blood clots
The recommended course for successful treatment of extremity pain is physical therapy.
Lower Extremity Therapy
This type of therapy will target the lower part of the body. This includes the lower limb, thigh, leg, hip, ankle and foot. This type of extremity pain is caused by injuries due to demanding nature of sports. The lower extremity bears our weight which causes the joint surfaces to become vulnerable to wear and tear. At Absolute Physical Therapy, you will be exposed to specialized care that targets the lower extremity areas.
The physical therapists at Absolute Physical Therapy will work together with you to come up with a physical therapy regimen that will consider your lower extremity as a whole kinetic chain. This will make it easier to put you on exercises that will help in your rehabilitation. They will also put you through strength building exercises that will make it difficult for the condition to recur.
Improper rehabilitation of such injuries can extend beyond on-going minor discomfort. It is for this reason that you should stick to your physical therapist’s instructions at all times. Some exercises physical therapists in Houston, TX will put you through include:
