Osteoarthritis(OA) Pain & Injury Treatment
The key is seeking treatment as early as possible, to prevent further deterioration.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition where the articular cartilage of your joints gradually wears away, exposing the underlying bone. As the arthritis progresses, bony spurs also develop in and around your joints in response to the change in load distribution and biomechanics. The key is seeking treatment as early as possible, to prevent further deterioration.
Potential Lifestyle Improvements
- Better quality of life
- Better gait when walking
- Decreased swelling and joint pain
- Good night’s sleep
For most OA patients, the number of sessions needed will depend on the site and severity of cartilage damage. In most cases, lifestyle improvements can be achieved within 5 – 6 sessions. Some clients see rapid improvement within just 3 – 4 sessions of physiotherapy — they experience a significant decrease in pain, and an improvement in range of motion, and strength. If you have a serious condition or a progressively worsening condition, your course of rehabilitation may take longer.
Once your symptoms are relieved and you are able to perform basic strengthening exercises, our in-house personal coaches and physiotherapists can collaborate to customise a return-to-work/sports plan for you in our fully equipped gym. Whether you are looking to return to an elite level of sport or need to be able to play with your grandchildren, we’ll get you back to doing what you love.
