Rheumatoid Arthritis: Our Physiotherapists can Help You

Rheumatoid-ArthritisPeople with Rheumatoid Arthritis suffer from chronic inflammation that affects small joints in your hands and feet. It results from immune system mistakenly attacking the body instead of defending it. This results in inflammation of the lining of the joints and tendons of the muscles. People with this condition feel stiffness upon waking up in the morning. Daily activities become difficult as muscles and joints often become weak. In addition to causing joint problems, rheumatoid arthritis sometimes can affect other organs of the body — such as the skin, eyes, lungs and blood vessels.

Although rheumatoid arthritis can occur at any age, it usually begins after age 40. The disorder is much more common in women.

There is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis but you can manage the condition through a variety of treatment methods including physiotherapy. A physiotherapist can assess your mobility, muscle strength, joints and posture and set goals with you to improve. Therapists can also help you regain the ability to carry out your daily activities.

If you or someone you know is suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis and would like to book an initial assessment with a physiotherapist, contact us today on 905-232-2202.
