1. What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is an important part of treatment for most people with arthritis. It’s run by physiotherapists, who are part of a team of healthcare professionals who help you to resume or maintain an active and independent life both at home and work. They’re experts in assessing movement and can show you how to protect your joints. Your physiotherapist will:
Offer advice and reassurance
Help you to feel confident about managing your condition
Address any concerns or uncertainties
Set appropriate goals to keep you as active as possible.
Specialist physiotherapists are trained in diagnosing and treating joint and muscle problems, and your GP may refer you to a specialist physiotherapist rather than to a rheumatologist or orthopaedic surgeon.
Your physiotherapist will start by asking you questions and examining the joint(s) you’re finding painful. This assessment will let them tailor the treatment to your needs. Treatment may include:
A programme of specific exercises
General advice on increasing your activity level and avoiding exercise-related injuries
Pain-relief treatments such as heat or ice packs, TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) machines, massage, manipulation, acupuncture or taping
Providing walking aids or splints to help you stay mobile and independent.
