Do your joints feel achy and stiff after exercising, spending a long day on your feet, or even after prolonged periods of inactivity? If so, you may be experiencing the effects of osteoarthritis. According to the American Arthritis Foundation, osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It generally affects people as they age, as a general “wear and tear” is being put on the cartilage, causing it to deteriorate and act as a less-successful cushion to the joints.This can cause the joints to become sore, stiff, and painful as the bones begin to rub together. Osteoarthritis is most commonly felt in the fingers, hips, knees, and spine, as these joints are all used excessively every day. Just think of your daily routine – by the time you lift yourself out of bed, shower, brush your teeth, eat breakfast, and prepare to begin your day, you’ve already used these joints a multitude of times.Therefore, it isn’t surprising that pain can occur in them over time. If you believe you may be experiencing symptoms of osteoarthritis, contact Kinetix Physical Therapy today to schedule your consultation! Why does osteoarthritis occur? While it is true that osteoarthritis is most common in older folks, that is not always necessarily the case. It is also possible for osteoarthritis to present itself in younger adults, especially if they are prone

to weak joints, poor dieting, or inactive lifestyles. Your cartilage works hard to protect your joints by absorbing the natural shocks that your body experiences on a daily basis. Therefore, much of your likelihood of developing osteoarthritis is dependent upon the physical and nutritional lifestyles you partake in. Joint alignment can alter and the muscles around a joint can weaken over time, causing the cartilage to shift or thin. As cartilage wears down, the likelihood of developing osteoarthritis increases. The most common symptoms of osteoarthritis include: • Joint pain. • Swelling or tenderness in or around the joint(s). • Inflammation or flare-ups of pain in the joint(s) after physical activity. • Feeling stiff after sitting or lying down for prolonged periods of time, especially when getting up in the morning. • Crepitus - also referred to as a “cracking or crunching” feeling when moving the joint(s), or the sound of bone rubbing on bone.

HOWCAN I FIND RELIEF?

If you are experiencing arthritis, you are not alone. In fact, 1 in 5 adults are diagnosed with arthritis annually. Physical therapy is one of the most effective treatment methods for osteoarthritis symptom relief. While anti-inflammatory and pain medications will help for the time being, they are very much a short-term solution – they merely mask the pain, while physical therapy treatments relieve it. Physical therapy can help in actually strengthening your joints and muscles once again, allowing for a much healthier and long-term pain relief solution. Ourphysical therapistsare trained tohelpyouwith jointalignment, stability, muscle regeneration, and – most importantly – pain relief. Don’t settle for a life of aches and pains - physical therapy can get you back on your feet and doing the activities you love! If you are suffering from osteoarthritis pains (or you think you might be) don’t hesitate to contact Kinetix Physical Therapy today. We can get you back to living your best, most pain-free life.

Over the counter pain relievers weren’t doing much to help. My physical therapist, Dr. Scott Eddins, reassured me that the problem was musculoskeletal and shouldn’t require steroid injections or major pain medicine.
