Arthritis is a joint disorder causing inflammation in one or more joints. The most common form of the condition is osteoarthritis which occurs when the cartilage lining the bones in the joint break down due to wear and tear.
Physiotherapy is key to the treatment and management of arthritis. Physiotherapy for arthritis focuses on the reduction of pain and stiffness as well as increasing the range of movement and function. The physiotherapist will work with you to develop a tailored made exercise programme to improve strength, movement and maximise your function.
