Simply walking can cause arthritis pain in the lower back, hip and knee. Our legs wear down as they’re used. Sometimes, old age is simply the culprit as use wears away at our joints and bone tissue. This type of arthritis, called degenerative arthritis—or osteoarthritis—is the most common kind of arthritis. When the leg’s cartilage—or its slick, cushioned surface—is worn away, bone rubs against bone. This pain, stiffness and swelling requires professional osteoarthritis treatment. Arthritis & Physical Therapy Regardless of the cause of arthritis, physical therapy serves a purpose in most cases. Often, severe arthritis may require medication, hot and cold therapy or even surgery. While maintaining a healthy weight, exercise and a good diet help, medical intervention may eventually be needed. During physical therapy treatment is focused on restoring normal joint mobility as well as strength and flexibility of the surrounding muscles. These exercise will attempt to reduce pressure on the arthritic joint. If a patient has undergone surgery, post-op physical therapy can help them reclaim their mobility—as well as their lifestyle.

It’s possible to alleviate the symptoms. It’s even possible to eliminate them entirely. If you have regular aches and pains, keep reading. We have a solution. Before knowing how to relieve arthritic pain, you’ll need to understand it. Arthritis—or the painful stiffness, or inflammation, of joints—isn’t a single disease. The term “arthritis” is an informal explanation of joint pain and disease in general. Over 100 types of arthritis exist, asserts the Arthritis Foundation. People of all ages, races and sex can get it. It’s also the leading cause of ongoing disability in America. What Causes Lower Back, Hip and Knee Arthritis? Because arthritis is a catch-all term, pinpointing what causes arthritis may be difficult. In most cases, arthritis is caused by injuries. These injuries degenerate bones, joints and cartilage, resulting in the pain. Arthritis can also be caused by:

• Infections, such as Lyme disease • An immune system dysfunction • The inheritance of osteoarthritis

If you or a loved one suffers from arthritis, you still have options. Call TODAY to schedule an evaluation with Shoreline Physical Therapy.

ALTER-G TREADMILL

6 Ways To Help Your Arthritis Pain

Does your foot, ankle, hip, or knee pain make running or moving an uncomfortable feat? Do you suffer from arthritis that hinders your day-to-day physical abilities? These common conditions that can be extremely uncomfortable, making you feel limited in your mobility. Pain can be inconvenient and isolating, making many people feel as if they are unable to do the activities they used to love. Fortunately,

at Shoreline PT, we have the experience, methods, and tools you need to relieve your pain and reclaim your mobility. If your arthritic pains are slowing you down, you may benefit from our AlterG Treadmill treatments – the only anti-gravity treadmill. What is the AlterG Treadmill? The term “anti-gravity” admittedly makes it sound like a contraption from a science-fiction universe. In reality, this treadmill was created using advanced contemporary science and technology. The Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology has been patented by NASA, allowing for a precise calibration of air pressure. The pressurized mechanics of the treadmill act to “unweight” the patient while the machine is in use. By doing so, the patient is able to use the treadmill by seemingly “floating” above it – allowing them to complete their exercise treatments without the harsh foot-to-treadmill impact you get with normal gravity. How will AlterG benefit me? This device will reduce the impact of your body weight by 80% while in use. It is a form of treatment that can be beneficial to anyone, especially those with joint and inflammatory pains caused by arthritis. It provides some much-needed relief that most other treatments simply are not able to do, creating a pain-free environment where you can achieve your goals and get back to doing the activities you love. By releasing the gravitational pressure of your body, the AlterG Treadmill is able to help you comfortably restore your normal walking, jogging, running, and moving mechanics. It also promotes strengthening exercises that can heal any tissues or cartilage that have been damaged by arthritis, in addition to building more muscle. All of this adds up to a much safer, quicker, and comfortable recovery than you may experience without it. Arthritic patients are prime candidates for the AlterG Treadmill, because the unweighted technology relieves pressure on the joints, making the exercise experience much more comfortable and pleasant. Patients are strapped into the middle of the treadmill, with their feet enclosed in the pressurized case. By safely securing patients, they are able to use the weight-bearing treadmill freely, without pressure on their legs or the fear of falling off of it. Other conditions that have shown improvement through the AlterG Treadmill include tendinitis, obesity, osteoporosis, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, spine fusions, stress fractures, neurological disorders, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), and total joint replacement. The AlterG technology provides a controlled environment for patients to exercise and heal. This allows them to regain functionality and return to their normal activities much faster than they may have anticipated. By getting back into physical activity as quickly as possible, patients are able to avoid unwanted risks, such as swelling and inflammation, weakened muscles, stiffness, or even atrophy. If your arthritis is stopping you from living your best quality of life, contact Shoreline PT today to schedule a consultation with one of our dedicated physical therapists. The AlterG Treadmill could be the ideal treatment for you!

When it comes to treating arthritis, you may have more options than you realize. There is a lot you can do to reduce your aches and pains from arthritis, while gaining more mobility and function. People often experience pain from arthritis because of stiff joints, muscles and other tissues. In addition, muscles become weak, therefore not supporting the arthritic joints. Our customized therapy treatments promote muscle strength, improve range of motion, increase mobility and ease pain. In addition, coupling your treatments with the following can also help you live life to the fullest and get you back to doing the things you love: 1. Education and self-management. When your treatment is over, our experts will have equipped you with the knowledge and exercises you need to continue your progress on your own. 2. Weight loss. Maintaining your recommended weight—or losing weight if you are overweight—can lessen your pain by reducing stress on your affected joints. Weight loss specifically helps ease pressure on weight- bearing joints such as the hips and knees. 3. Footwear and insoles. If arthritis affects your knee, foot or ankle, special footwear and insoles can reduce pain and improve walking. At Shoreline we provide evaluation and fabrication of custom foot orthotics on site. 4. Knee braces. For specific types of knee arthritis, an unloading brace may help reduce pain and improve knee joint stability. 5. Heat and cold. Many people find the heat of a warm bath or heat pad eases arthritis pain. Others find relief in cold packs. Still others prefer alternating the two. 6. Exercise. Exercise has been proven to help reduce arthritis pain while increasing strength and function. Knowing the right kind of exercises to do, is the key. Talking with our physical therapists will point you in the right direction!
