Arthritis Affects Everyone Differently - Physio Can Help
If you experience chronic pain, you know firsthand how daily pain can impact your life. Managing chronic pain does take some discipline, but there are effective treatments, including physiotherapy, that can significantly reduce pain and help you to enjoy your daily activities.
The goal of physiotherapy is to reduce pain and to improve range of motion, function and well-being. Our clients receive personalized hands-on treatments, as well as education about best practices for pain management. Often, physiotherapy combined with lifestyle adjustments can significantly improve the quality of life for those suffering from chronic pain caused by arthritis and other chronic conditions.
When you visit one of our physios for help with your arthritis, we will first conduct a physical assessment to determine a treatment plan and a prevention plan best suited to your unique situation. Your treatment plan will include the process of rehabilitation that will most significantly reduce your pain in both the short and long term. Additionally, we will work with you to develop a prevention plan that will help to prevent further injuries, and will often include both stretching and strengthening methods.
Many physiotherapists specialize in treating chronic pain from specific causes. Some specialists will focus on specific areas of the body, while others will focus on a particular condition, such as arthritis. If you are experiencing chronic pain due to arthritis, it is important to choose a physiotherapist with expertise in this condition. Usually, physical therapists with expertise in arthritis often work closely with rheumatologists to develop the best care methods and practices.
