There are over 100 different types of arthritis, each with their own specific treatment plans. Arthritis occurs when the bodies own immune system attacks itself.
It commonly affects older men over 50 and post menopausal women.
Arthritis acts to cause inflammation at joints, causing the joint to be stiff and immobile. Depending on the type of arthritis, the affected joint will also cause pain on movement or at rest.
Apart from medicated treatment which will be decided by your doctor, physiotherapy used in conjunction with medication plays an active role in the treatment of arthritis. It can help people to maintain independence through improved mobility, strength and flexibility whilst minimizing pain caused by the inflammation.
