The sooner osteoarthritis is diagnosed, the better. While the thinning of the cartilage between the joints cannot be reversed, physiotherapy treatments and services can help slow the advancement of this condition.
At Physiotherapy First, your physiotherapist performs an extensive examination to determine what joints and areas in the body where osteoarthritis is present. From there, they will discuss various forms of treatment options, educate you more about osteoarthritis, and encourage you to participate in the creation of your customized treatment plan.
The objective of physiotherapy to treat osteoarthritis is to help alleviate pain and discomfort while strengthening the muscles and connective tissues around the joints. With regular physiotherapy treatments, many patients notice the frequency, duration, and severity of pain caused by their osteoarthritis decreases.
