Arthritis can be exhausting, leaving sufferers with pain, stiffness, and joint damage. It can limit their mobility and ability to enjoy life as they once did. With the right arthritis treatment plan that includes physical therapy, acupuncture, and other modalities, individuals with the condition under consideration can manage their symptoms. It is possible to avoid injections, medications, and even surgery. Many patients can get substantial relief from even the early onset of this condition thanks to these treatments. 

Before We Start

The main thing you need to know before we start the arthritis treatment is that the physiotherapist assigned to you will provide advice and guidance to keep you confident when managing your condition. 

First, it’s important to understand what type of arthritis you have before deciding what treatment path to take. 

Degenerative joint condition osteoarthritis is often caused by a sudden injury to the joint, even when the injury has healed. Obesity, careers with overuse of the joints, and reactions to environmental factors are all other potential causes of arthritis. 

Rheumatoid arthritis is considered an auto-immune disease. It manifests itself in the immune system recognizing the joint as an unwelcome intruder and launching an attack against it. Those with rheumatoid arthritis can experience soreness around the joints, especially after inactivity.

Our experience in arthritis treatment shows that this disease can vary in symptoms. The most common include joint pain, stiffness, redness, and the joint giving off clicking sounds upon movement. Pain could worsen when exercising or working and be alleviated after stopping the activity. 

It’s essential to live an active lifestyle when it comes to arthritis management. The right balance between rest and activity should be found. We can help you with that.

How Can Arthritis Treatment Help

A physical therapist aims to assess a patient’s needs and work to restore joint movement, improve walking and running, and improve strength in the muscles responsible for supporting the joint. Massage, ice or heat packs, splints, and acupuncture are some of the tools that our physiotherapists have to offer. We will also create an arthritis treatment program consisting of physical exercises and stretching to increase range of motion, strength, coordination, and agility. 

By enlisting professional help, those living with arthritis can better manage symptoms and lead a more pain-free life.
