Physiotherapists can help you to resume or maintain an active and independent life both at home and work. They can advise you on exercise, posture and ways to relieve pain.
Physiotherapists are experts in the structure of the human body and its movement. Physiotherapists are involved in the assessment, diagnosis, planning and management of patient care. They use a range of interventions including: exercise, joint mobilisation and hydrotherapy and can prescribe aids, such as crutches or splints. They can also provide you with education about your arthritis as well as support and advice to help manage it.
