Inflammatory arthritis (iA) (including rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, connective tissue disease) and osteoarthritis (OA) are major causes of pain and disability, worldwide. Cold, damp, winter days can make these conditions feel worse. Physical activity has been proven to have many benefits for people with iA and OA – reducing the disease progression, and improving fitness inpeople who are regularly active.
However, the reality is that many people suffering from any one of these diseases are generally less active, most commonly because of pain, stiffness, reluctance or fear of causing a flare-up, or injuring themselves and doing more damage to their joints. Remaining inactive (thinking you are protecting your body) can actually do more harm than good, not to mention missing out on the benefits of increasing your activity levels on your cardiovascular system, general fitness and energy levels, weight maintenance and mental outlook.
We have several therapies that can help improve these conditions: Therapeutic Laser Therapy, Tecartherapy, Acupuncture, portable Micro-current Therapy and manual physiotherapy. Our Physiotherapists can also prescribe the correct exercises for you.
