Rheumatoid arthritis is a systemic inflammatory condition where the body’s own defence mechanism doesn’t work properly. While joint swelling, stiffness and pain are common features, other symptoms can include fever and feeling tired and unwell.
At Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic we can help alleviate the pain and negative symptoms associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis. We aim to reduce pain and swelling and hence improve or maintain movement, strength, function and independence.
We recognise the importance of managing this condition in conjunction with other medical professionals and hence can liaise with your GP or Consultant as required.
