Joint Pain & Injury

Did you know there are more than 300 joints in the human body? These joints give our bodies the ability to bend, move and twist. So, when a joint is plagued by pain or injury, everyday activities can become difficult.

How can you care for your joints? As with many things, weight management, proper diet, enough sleep, and light exercise can help keep your joints healthy and strong. However, for those suffering from Arthritis and Degenerative Joint Disease, prevention may simply not be enough and medical intervention may be necessary.

Physical therapy for joint pain/ injury can help prevent or delay joint replacements and manage symptoms of arthritis and chronic joint pain, while providing tools to minimize pain or further damage to the joint and help acutely injured joints recover from injury. Improving flexibility and range of motion in the affected joints is also a key component in most physical therapy programs.
