Arthritic Pain

This is a major problem in Ireland, especially in the older population. Over the last number of years however there has been a significant change in the approach to arthritis, whether osteoarthritis or rheumatoid. Rather than avoiding activity we now realise that it is important to exercise to maintain vital strength and flexibility.

However it is extremely important that exercises are prescribed by an expert clinician who understands the complexities and contra-indications of the condition, as well as the requirements of the specific individual. Hence it’s really important that your physiotherapist is a Chartered Physiotherapist.
