Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that affects the joints, and most often occurs in weight bearing joints such as hips, feet, spine and knees. It is caused by the breakdown of cartilage, which wears away over time causing the bones to rub against each other. Osteoarthritis in a joint often results in pain, stiffness and lack of movement.

Often times osteoarthritis sufferers are told there is nothing that can be done to relieve their symptoms. Fortunately this is NOT true. Physiotherapy techniques and specific exercises can be used to strengthen the muscles around the joint, and decrease the pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis. This can significantly improve your function and mobility, while also helping to slow the progression of the disease.
