All of these treatments together can help treat arthritis and get you back to your normal activities.
Arthritis is a medical condition that impacts the joints. It can strike just about anywhere, often causing symptoms of stiffness and pain that tend to get worse as you age. The two most common types of arthritis are rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system attacks the joints, starting with the lining, while osteoarthritis results in a breakdown of the cartilage that covers the ends of the bones in the joint. Both types are painful and can make it difficult for you to participate in your favorite physical activities.
At Mooresville Sports & Physical Therapy, we offer arthritis treatment options that can help reduce the symptoms you experience and improve your quality of life. We work with patients located throughout Cornelius, North Carolina to provide treatment that goes beyond traditional therapy and medications. We will create a customized plan based on your symptoms, incorporating physical therapy to improve your mobility and restore the use of the joints impacted by this disease. Our treatment plan will also involve working toward an increase in the strength within the affected joints so you can maintain your level of fitness and participate in physical activity.
As part of your customized plan, we’ll also develop exercises that you can do at home to continue to improve your balance, flexibility, and strength. All of these treatments together can help treat arthritis and get you back to your normal activities.
