PHYSICAL THERAPY & OSTEOARTHRITIS
How can physical therapy help Osteoarthritis? According to the American OccupationalTherapy Association, 1 in 5 adults are diagnosed with arthritis annually. Physical and occupational therapy are the most common treatments for Osteoarthritis, usually helping with the relief of joint pain in just a few sessions. If you have arthritis, don’t fret - there is hope! While anti-inflammatory and pain medications will help for the time being, they are very much a short-term solution.

They are dedicated to helping you get back to your normal levels of mobility.
