When you hear “physical therapy”, what’s the first thing that comes into your mind?
If you said athletic injuries or broken bones, you’re not alone. Physical therapy is widely seen as a way to recover from injuries sustained from sports or other activities. What many people don’t commonly associate with physical therapy, however, is recovering from pain caused by arthritis. Approximately 50 million Americans suffer from some form of arthritis. While these forms may manifest in many different ways, one symptom stays consistent, and that’s pain. This type of pain can be debilitating. Our Physical Therapists see numerous individuals for this kind of pain and have been able to help them successfully manage their pain.
When you work with one of our Physical Therapists, they can provide an individualized plan to help you regain the mobility, strength, and coordination that is commonly lost from the effects of arthritis. We can also help you make certain lifestyle changes that will help minimize the symptoms of arthritis. By choosing to see a Physical Therapist at RPT, you choose someone who is invested in seeing you live a happier and healthier life.
