OSTEOARTHRITIS

This is the most common type of arthritis and can affect one or more joints.  It occurs in response to ageing which is why it is often referred to as “wear and tear”.  It can also follow a previous joint injury, although it may not develop until some years later.

Physiotherapy can play an important role in helping treat arthritis by providing you with pain relief, improved mobility, strength and flexibility.  The techniques we utilise are manual therapy, exercise and dry needling to alleviate the negative symptoms.

Should you require surgery for Joint Replacement due to osteoarthritis, we are experienced in guiding you through the important stages of your recovery, in the months following your surgery, to ensure that you achieve an excellent outcome (See Pre and Post Orthopaedic Surgery).
