Arthritis

Overview

Arthritis is a common condition characterized by inflammation and stiffness in the joints, which can lead to pain, swelling, and decreased mobility. 

Whether you’re dealing with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or another form of the disease, finding effective treatment is essential for managing symptoms and improving your quality of life.

How Can Physical Therapy Help Manage Arthritis?

Physical therapy plays a vital role in managing arthritis symptoms by focusing on improving joint function, reducing pain, and enhancing mobility. 

Through a combination of targeted exercises, manual therapy techniques, and patient education, physical therapists can help strengthen the muscles surrounding the affected joints, improve flexibility, and teach strategies for managing pain and preserving joint health. 

This personalized approach aims to empower you to take an active role in managing your arthritis and maintaining your independence.

Symptoms

Arthritis symptoms can vary depending on the type and severity of the condition but may include:

  • Joint pain or tenderness
  • Swelling and inflammation
  • Stiffness, especially in the morning or after periods of inactivity
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Joint deformities or changes in joint structure.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, seeking professional evaluation and treatment is essential for effectively managing your arthritis and preventing further joint damage.

What’s Causing My Arthritis?

Arthritis can have various causes, including:

  • Wear and tear on the joints (osteoarthritis)
  • Autoimmune dysfunction (rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Inflammatory conditions such as lupus or psoriatic arthritis
  • Joint injuries or trauma
  • Metabolic abnormalities

Identifying the specific type and underlying factors contributing to your arthritis is crucial for developing an effective treatment plan tailored to your needs.
