Physio Can Help: Arthritis
Arthritis refers to more than 100 related conditions affecting people’s joints. It can strike anyone at anytime, regardless of age, physical condition or ethnic background. Overall arthritis effects more women than men, and more than 4.6 million Canadians aged fifteen and older report having arthritis. The most common arthritis symptoms include joint pain and swelling, and it can interfere with an individual’s ability to manage daily activities.
Physiotherapists help patients improve their joint health, and restore muscle strength and endurance — all of which helps sufferers return to regular activities and normal daily living.
