Arthritis Rehabilitation Program
People who suffer from arthritis are at risk for muscle atrophy, decreased flexibility and muscle strength, and reduced cardiovascular endurance. Therefore, our approach utilizes rehabilitative techniques so that our patients can improve their sense of well-being. Our arthritis rehabilitation program includes a combination of education and exercise and is designed to cover different topics in order to help our patients manage their symptoms and lessen the impact of this disease on their life.
What is Action Physical Therapy’s focus?
We focus on the relationship between function and structure. For example, if the structure of your joint is not right, then it won’t be able to work as it was designed. We can maximize the function of your arthritis joint so that you can have the kind of life you want. The goal of our arthritis rehabilitation program is maintaining and improving your range of motion and joint strength. Needless to say, rehabilitation needs time and requires patience because joint strengthening doesn’t happen overnight. Improvement comes gradually – the body gets more adept and stronger slowly over time – and that’s why consistent rehabilitation practice is essential.
