STAY ACTIVE WHILE LIVINGWITH ARTHRITIS

How can physical therapy help me stay active? Those suffering from arthritic pains can greatly benefit from physical therapy. It is possible to maintain an active lifestyle while living with arthritis, but you may need some assistance. Your physical therapist will conduct a physical evaluation to determine what the best course of treatment will be for you. Thismay includeweight management to help ease some stress on your joints, as well as posture improvement to relieve stiffness and prevent injury. Strength training is also a crucial aspect of PT treatments, in order to improve the overall strength and function of the affected joint(s). Your physical therapist will guide you through gentle exercises that become more intensive as you progress in your treatments, in order to help you achieve your highest levels of physical

capability. Your physical therapist will also provide specific techniques for alleviating pain, whichmay include thermal therapies, manual therapy, or ultrasound. Physical therapy treatments are aimed at relieving pain and reducing the amount of stress and stiffness surrounding your joints. They are meant to help you achieve your physical goals, whether that means simply managing your pain or helping you get back to running, lifting, swimming, or any other physical hobby that is being limited by your condition.
