Arthritis is a progressive condition characterized by painful swelling, inflammation, and stiffness of the body’s joints. Although arthritis has a number of different incarnations, the most common forms of arthritis include osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Commonly affected joints include fingers and wrists (most often afflicted with rheumatoid arthritis) as well as the weight-bearing joints, including the spine, the knees, and hips (osteoarthritis).
For many patients, arthritis can be a debilitating illness. Physical therapy is incorporated into arthritis pain management plans as part of an overall strategy to relieve pain while promoting normal movement and functioning. Not only does physical therapy assist with arthritis but it can also help gain strength and teach arthritis sufferers how to move while avoiding additional pain.
In addition to physical therapy, Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation has a wide range of treatment options for arthritis, including pain management through medical care. Our medical director oversees all programs of care and may recommend and administer joint injections or epidural steroid injections. Additionally, our office provides chiropractic care and acupuncture as well as massage therapy.
