Are your joints creaky, stiff or ‘popping’? If you’re over the age of 65, this may be a sign of arthritis. However, being diagnosed with arthritis isn’t all doom and gloom. Keeping strong and active will help you lead a full life without being hindered by the symptoms of arthritis.

We will assess your individual condition and put together a physiotherapy treatment plan that caters to your needs, goals and lifestyle. The key to your success is to consistently practise the exercises taught to you by your arthritis physiotherapist. Your body will become stronger and more adept with regular practice.
If you have arthritis, inaction and breaks from physical activity are the worst solutions for improving your condition. Movement may cause some discomfort but moving regularly and maintaining your strength will help minimise long-term pain. Getting arthritis physiotherapy treatment will help set you on the path to living a life with less pain and more movement.
