Conditions We Treat


Arthritis is a common condition that affects millions of people in the United Kingdom. It refers to inflammation of the joints, causing pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. There are several types of arthritis, with the most common being osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

About Arthritis

Osteoarthritis occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of your bones wears down over time, leading to joint pain and limited movement. It often affects weight-bearing joints like the knees and hips.

Rheumatoid arthritis, on the other hand, is an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the joints, causing pain, swelling, and potentially deformities.

How we can help

While arthritis can be challenging, physiotherapy can play a crucial role in managing its symptoms. A physiotherapist can develop tailored exercise programs to improve joint flexibility and strengthen the muscles around the affected area. They may also provide manual therapy and advise on pain management techniques.

By working closely with a physiotherapist, individuals with arthritis can enhance their quality of life and maintain their mobility for years to come. If you’re experiencing joint pain, consider seeking guidance from a physiotherapist to address your specific needs and concerns.
