Osteoarthritis – what can Physiotherapy do to help!
Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of the joints in the body, caused by wear and tear. Common symptoms include pain in the joints, tenderness and stiffness, inflammation at the joint, reduced movement, weakness and muscle wasting. For some people, the symptoms can be mild and intermittent. Other people can experience more continuous and severe problems which make it difficult to carry out everyday activities.
Physiotherapy for patients suffering from osteoarthritis has many benefits. It can reduce pain, improve function and muscle strength. Physiotherapists can use manual techniques and hydrotherapy as well as educating and providing an exercise programme.
Participation in an exercise programme even once a week can have an impact on both pain and function and at SilverPhysio, we are able to devise an individualised exercise programme for our clients who suffer from osteoarthritis. We teach our clients how they can manage their pain and educate them on osteoarthritis.
