When you walk or run, 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 Axes 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, to know where to perform manual therapies, to develop a series of exercises to reduce your pain and to restore normal function.

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 Axes Physical Therapy, we work closely with you to evaluate the mechanics of your knees and the 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. Physical therapy restores the normal movement, strength and coordination, and can help you quickly relieve pain and get back to normal activities.
