Arthritis & Osteoarthritis


Arthritis is inflammation of a joint due to wear and tear. Rheumatoid arthritis generally affects multiple joints and requires a systemic approach to treat it appropriately.
Physiotherapy involves;

  • Advice on joint care

  • Pain relief

  • Inflammation reduction

  • Referral to and communication with other professionals in rheumatology, occupational therapists etc.


This usually affects single joints and often results from injury or repetitive use/disuse over years and responds well to mobilisation, strengthening and control of inflammation and pain.

Physiotherapists are specialised in the prescription of exercise to promote joint health and longevity
