Elderly hands suffering from Arthritis

Arthritic pain, whether caused by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or any of the many other inflammatory arthritic conditions, can be debilitating and significantly affect a person’s quality of life. Whilst the joint damage caused by these degenerative conditions is irreversible, the secondary symptoms such as pain, muscle stiffness and joint restriction can all be helped with physiotherapy. 

How can Petersfield Physiotherapy help?

We will begin by taking the time to understand the impact arthritis is having on your day to day life, what your symptoms are and this affects your daily activities.  We will also ask about any investigations you’ve had and what you’ve tried to ease your symptoms.

Your treatment may then include hands-on therapy, education & advice, activity modification and a bespoke home exercise programme to complement your time in clinic with us.
