The focus of our therapy for patients with arthritis is to help you improve your mobility and restore the use of impacted joints.
We will work with you to gently increase the strength of your joints and heighten your fitness level to make it easier to perform the tasks required for independent living.
Our customized exercise programs will help you improve flexibility, strength, balance and coordination to function to the best of your ability.
We will also illustrate how to properly use assistive devices such as walkers and canes. In some instances, we will also recommend different treatment initiatives such a splints and braces to support your joints, or shoe inserts to relieve stress on your lower extremities.
We also work with hot and cold therapy to ease joint pain and stiffness.
Our experienced physical therapists may also suggest how your environment can be modified as in adding ergonomic chairs or cushioned mats to relieve pain.
