Arthritis Pain Relief

While there’s no cure for osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, physical therapy can help you manage the painful side effects of these afflictions. Research has shown that patients benefit from physical therapy, both short term and long term. Power In Motion Rehabilitation, approaches the treatment of arthritis by gently correcting spinal posture in addition to facilitating a more appropriate alignment of the affected joints. Our hands-on, manual therapy techniques, improve spinal posture, which allows the forces of gravity to work with us, rather than against us. Correcting joint alignment dramatically reduces the wear and tear upon the joints. Excessive stress, strain or biomechanical forces on joints, accelerates the process of deterioration, inflammation and pain. Pain which continues to progress, leads to an increasingly diminished quality of life.

Once spinal posture and maximized joint alignment have been achieved, the physical therapists of Power In Motion Rehabilitation, design a strengthening and stabilization program specifically tailored to the individual requirements of each patient. No two arthritis patients are alike. Therefore, exercise programs must be personalized to the unique needs and capabilities of each patient.

It is also possible for arthritis to be caused by infections, such as Lyme disease, an immune system dysfunction, such as rheumatoid arthritis, or an abnormal metabolism, which can lead to gout.

What are the different types of arthritis?

There are over 100 different types of arthritis, containing monoarthritis (where only one joint is affected) and oligoarthritis (where multiple joints are affected). Some of the most common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis, which develops from “wear and tear” of cartilage, and rheumatoid arthritis, which develops from overactive immune systems.

Is exercise good for arthritis pain?

Targeted exercises can help ease your arthritic pains. It is possible to maintain an active lifestyle while living with arthritis, but you may need some assistance.
