Are you limited in your activities due to chronic arthritis pain? Do you
find even the simplest tasks to be painful endeavors? If so,
physical therapy may be an invaluable treatment option to help restore your mobility and
relieve your discomfort.
Arthritis is a medical condition affecting more than 3 million Americans
each year, causing pain and stiffness in a person’s joints due to
inflammation. Arthritis can affect nearly any joint in the body, including
elbows, knees, fingers, toes, ankles, and hips. Many arthritis patients
tend to avoid moving affected joints to due to the resulting pain. This
immobility, however, can have an adverse effect and worsen a person’s
symptoms. Physical therapy is an effective and widely used form of treatment
for arthritis patients that focuses on restoring the body’s ability
to move and strengthening weakened or injured joints. A trained physical
therapist can help you establish a custom-tailored physical therapy regimen
that can improve your flexibility and strength.
Physical therapy utilizes the following methods to help with arthritis pain:
- Proper rest techniques
- Custom splints
- Therapeutic massages
- Teaching good posture
- Hot and cold therapy
Benefits of PT for Joint Replacements
If your arthritis has escalated to a point where joint replacement surgery
is required, physical therapy both before and after your surgery can be
greatly beneficial to help prepare your body for the procedure and aid
with healing afterwards. Physical therapy can potentially greatly reduce
your healing time and get you back to your life faster than just basic rest.
