Arthritis Physio treatment Calgary

Arthritis is a type of joint inflammation that causes irritation, pain, and swelling. It breaks down cartilage, the smooth layer that protects the ends of bones.

Joint pain, stiffness, and swelling are all symptoms of arthritis. It most commonly affects the fingers, wrists, hips, and knees, but cartilage wear can affect any joint where bones contact.

Arthritis affects nearly one out of every four adults, and it can even affect children. We treat all types of arthritis so you may keep working, playing, and living your life.

How is arthritis treated?

Treatment will be determined by your symptoms, age, and overall health. With the help of his or her health care physician, a treatment plan is created for each individual. Some effective treatment options include:

1.
Massage:  A mild massage of aching muscles can help to stimulate blood flow and warm them up.
2.
Shockwave therapy: Electrical nerve stimulation applied to the skin (TENS). With the use of a TENS device, pain can be minimized. The device delivers gentle electrical pulses to the aching nerve endings. This alters pain perception by blocking pain impulses from reaching the brain.

3. Acupuncture: Thin needles are placed at specified locations in the body in this procedure. It could cause the nervous system to release pain-relieving molecules naturally. A licenced health care provider performs the operation.

4. Exercise therapy: Exercises may help to relieve joint pain and stiffness. Swimming, walking, low-impact aerobic activity, and range-of-motion activities are among them. Stretching exercises can also aid with joint flexibility.

FAQs

What are the causes of arthiritis?

The cause of arthritis is determined by the type of arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a condition that develops as a result of the wear and tear of a joint over time or as a result of overuse. The immune system attacks the body's own tissues, causing rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and scleroderma. Gout is caused by crystals forming in the joints. Genetic predisposition has been linked to some types of arthritis.
