Many people with osteoarthritis believe that symptoms are inevitable and cannot be managed. Let our experts at ProMedica Total Rehab help you relieve your joint pain.
- Have you noticed mild swelling around your joints?
- Do you feel as though your joint pain is worse after activity or towards the end of the day?
- Have you heard a clicking or cracking sound when a joint bends?
What is osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It occurs when the cartilage in a joint breaks down due to “wear and tear” over time. This can result from overuse during a job or athletic activities. When the cartilage is damaged or gone completely, moving a joint can cause pain and friction between joints.
Can osteoarthritis be treated?
If you have osteoarthritis, talk to your doctor about treatment options. With a prescription from your physician, physical and occupational therapy can be an effective method of treatment. We believe that regular weight bearing exercise, strengthening and stretching can help to reduce or alleviate pain and improve your day to day function.
