Rheumatoid Arthritis Limits Mobility
Rheumatoid arthritis is a painful, limiting disorder in which the joint
lining is inflamed, causing the joint to swell and making it difficult
to properly use the attached body parts (typically including hands, feet,
and knees). It is a chronic inflammatory condition that causes the affected
joints and related appendages to become deformed. Those affected by rheumatoid
arthritis typically experience negative effects ranging from chronic pain
to decreased function and disability.
You may be experiencing rheumatoid arthritis if...
- Your joint is stiff or swollen when you wake up in the morning.
- Your joint is swollen or inflamed.
- Your joint is warm to the touch.
- You are experiencing fever and/or fatigue.
- Your joint feels tingly or numb.
- You have to adapt your motion or methods when performing normal activities
to avoid joint pain.
- Many of your joints are stiff, swollen, increasingly rigid, and/or in pain.
Pain and Rehabilitation Management for Rheumatoid Arthritis
Physical therapy is typically a staple when treating rheumatoid arthritis
and other painful conditions like it. If you catch rheumatoid arthritis
early on, physical therapy can be a great way to preserve maximal use
of the affected joint and prevent paralysis and deformity. Physical therapy
can also help people whose rheumatoid arthritis is developed and already
causing problems. In such cases, PT can provide a way of regaining lost
flexibility and range of motion in the affected area and even help reduce pain.
