How Can Arthritis Physiotherapy Help You Move Better and Feel Better?

Arthritis affects millions globally and is characterized by inflammation and joint pain, which can impede mobility and hinder daily tasks. Although it can occur at any age, arthritis is more prevalent in older adults. The two most commonly diagnosed types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, but numerous other variations exist.

Common Symptoms of Arthritis

Arthritis symptoms can vary depending on the type and severity of the condition, but common symptoms include the following:
  • Joint pain
  • Swelling and redness around the joints
  • Stiffness
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite
Although there is no cure for arthritis, several treatment options are available, including physiotherapy. Physiotherapy has proven to be the most effective method for managing these symptoms and helping patients maintain an active and independent lifestyle.
