Your treatment plan will include methods for relieving pain and stiffness while optimizing function.
Arthritis treatment goes beyond traditional medications, therapy, and even surgery when you visit us at Mooresville Sports & Physical Therapy. If you struggle with arthritis, incorporating physical therapy into your treatment involves improving mobility and restoring the use of affected joints. We will also work towards increasing strength within these joints and helping you maintain your fitness level, so you can continue to perform the things you need to do and enjoy doing.
As part of your arthritis treatment plan, we will develop a set of exercises designed to improve strength, flexibility, and balance for maximized physical function. Your plan may include:
- Teaching you how to maintain proper posture for common day-to-day activities in hopes of improving function and relieving pain.
- Showing you how to use canes, walkers, and other assistive devices (if needed).
- Recommending splints, braces, shoe inserts, and other treatment options to ease stiffness and pain in your joints.
- Making recommendations for modifying your environment to improve function, such as using cushioned mats in your kitchen or working in an ergonomic chair.
Know that with arthritis treatment, improvement will be gradual but noticeable over time. As your body gets stronger and adept at doing certain exercises as time passes, you may notice a reduction in your symptoms and improved quality of life.
