Living with Arthritis? Physiotherapy can help! Physiotherapists play important roles in the overall management of arthritis.

Physiotherapy treatment is aimed at:

  • Reducting pain
  • Improving movement
  • Strengthening muscle power
  • Improving function & assisting with independence

Pain relief methods

  • Thermal (heat treatments)
  • Improving movement
  • Electrical treatments (electrotherapy)
  • Physical treatments – exercise, manual therapy and hydrotherapy

Other treatments

  • Exercise: A balanced programme of rest and exercise, and careful attention to joint posture is essential for joint health.
  • Manual therapy: Mobilisation and manipulation techniques are specific passive movements applied to joints and soft tissues to help restore full movement to a joint that is painful and restricted.
  • Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy (pool therapy) is a very useful means of exercising arthritic joints using the buoyancy of water to assist / resist movement.

    Our Physio therapists can assist with advice, treatment, rehabilitation and exercise programmes. For further information contact us and/or visit Arthritis NZ
