There are many types of arthritis, the most common being osteoarthritis which tends to affect virtually all of us at some point in our lives. Arthritis is inflammation and wear of the joints in the body, either due to physical wear and tear or due to a disease process such as rheumatoid arthritis.
This often leads to pain, stiffness and weakness around the joints, all of which physiotherapy is aimed at improving. There are a wide variety of treatments available for arthritic problems ranging from exercise, ultrasound, low level laser therapy and acupuncture. We also provide hydrotherapy which allows for exercise whilst taking the weight off the body which can be extremely beneficial.
