A growing population is affected by arthritis whether it is osteoarthritis or reumatoid arthritis. Although there is no cure for it, there are many things that can be addressed in physical therapy. Our primary concern is how it affects a patient’s mobility and life style. It is important to be able to maintain your activities of daily living. Treatments for arthritis can vary from certain modalities or medications that decrease symptoms to surgical interventions. Physical therapy can be very helpful to prevent or delay surgery and promote a more normal, healthy, active life.
