What Causes Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis or degenerative joint disease is caused by inflammation and loss of joint space across one or more joints. This is the most common form of arthritis and can cause decreased mobility and function in the joints that are affected.
Several factors such as age, activity level, and past injuries can all play a role in the development of osteoarthritis. It is important to remember that there is a wide range of arthritis, and it doesn’t always cause pain.
We are committed to helping you along your journey back to movement no matter where that may be. We will work on regaining the mobility you have lost and come up with new ways to keep your joints healthy and pain-free.
Common Symptoms of Osteoarthritis
- Pain and stiffness around the affected joints.
- Decreased mobility first thing in the morning.
- Swelling in the affected joints.
- Decreased strength in the affected joints secondary to mobility/pain.
How to Treat Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is first treated by identifying mobility restrictions and decreasing pain in the affected joints. Your physical therapist will collaborate with you through a combination of both manual therapy and exercise to address your specific needs.
It will be important to strengthen the muscles around the affected joints to help support them as well as increase new healthy blood to lubricate the joint. The physical therapists at Pro Staff will help you understand what is going on first and address all your unique needs.
Every joint is different so it is important to have a skilled physical therapist evaluate and treat any symptoms you may be having.
How long will it take for me to get better?
Your recovery time can be affected by many different factors that are unique to you. This may include how long you have had osteoarthritis, which joints are affected, if this is a recurring injury, the extent of any damaged tissue, along with several other factors such as sleep, nutrition, and activity level.
