How Physical Therapy Can Help Relieve Arthritis Pain
Since arthritis can develop practically anywhere in the body with varying levels of severity, it can be difficult to effectively treat with at-home care. Whether you are suffering from stiffness, swelling, tension, immobility, or just general pain, there are numerous treatment plans that one of our physical therapist can recommend for you. Treatment plans often include a combination of exercises, stretches, and massages to lessen the pressure on your joints.
The goal of physical therapy for arthritis pain is to help the patient regain mobility and strength, increase flexibility, reduce their pain in the short- and long-term, and prevent additional joint damage. Physical therapy is unlike a professional massage or at-home care because its aim is to target the root of the problem. Since arthritis can develop at any age and for different reasons, it is important to take an individualized approach. Our licensed physical therapists at Dragonfly Physical Therapy develop customized programs for each patient, catered to their unique needs. In your initial consultation (lasting approximately 45 minutes), your physical therapist will work with you to determine the best plan, frequency, and duration of treatment to get you feeling your best!
