Hips and Knees


Do you have knee or hip pain that is preventing your form hiking that trail, running with your child, moving those boxes, climbing those stairs or performing those agility drills? The hips and knees are essential to any moment when we are on our feet and any limitation can prevent you from being able to do the the most basic things in life. With the knee and hip working together, doing what you love will be an even more enjoyable experience.

The hip is the “powerhouse” for the leg as it determines how we will absorb and produce forces with every step. The knee is controlled by the hip and the health of our knees requires our hips to be as mobile, stable and as strong as possible.
The hips are also meant to absorb the forces that can be harmful to our low backs when it comes to yard work, lifting your child, exercising, going for a good hike, etc…

At Vertical Wall, we will assess not just the hip and the knee but the whole body to get you back to where you want to be!


The mission of Vertical Wall Physical Therapy, LLC is to provide patients with cutting-edge physical therapy treatments that are evidenced based, one on one, and hands-on. We strive to equip our patients with the necessary tools to return them to their desired physical and health status, and to invite them to achieve results beyond as well.
