Arthritis is the inflammation of the joints, which cause pain and stiffness in the body. Most people find that the symptoms of arthritis worsen with age – just something else to look forward to while growing up. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we offer treatments that specifically treat arthritis to reduce symptoms and improve our patients’ quality of life. We provide complete wellness programs at all of our greater Atlanta locations to give our patients comprehensive access to exceptional care provided by the industry’s premier therapists.
The most common signs and symptoms of arthritis are pain, stiffness, swelling, redness, and decreased range of motion in the joints. Knees are especially susceptible to arthritis because of the heavy loads that they bear from constant wear and tear throughout a person’s life. With the exception of Rheumatoid arthritis that is an autoimmune disease, arthritis most commonly involves damage to the joints’ cartilage. Enough damage can result in bone grinding against bone, which can cause a significant amount of pain and restricted movement. While most arthritic patients find that they have developed arthritis from aging, some have an onset of arthritis from a joint injury or infection.
At Sovereign Rehabilitation, our arthritis treatment focuses on relieving symptoms and improving joint function. Many times our therapists will combine sever treatments in order to fully relieve a patient’s symptoms. Aquatic rehabilitation is often a very effective treatment that allows the joints to move without restriction, stress, or wear bearing down on them. We also offer other advanced treatment options and exercises that can be done at home to strengthen the muscles that surround the joints in order to improve function, balance, and mobility.
If you are suffering from the effects of arthritis and are looking for effective treatment, please contact Sovereign Rehabilitation today. We look forward to helping you live your best life.
