Using Physical Therapy for Arthritis
Every July, we recognize Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month. Living with juvenile arthritis can be painful and debilitating for the estimated 300,000 children diagnosed with this disorder in the US.
Fortunately, physical therapy can help! Physical therapy is a patient-preferred, non-pharmaceutical approach for addressing chronic pain, and it is often prescribed for individuals living with arthritis.
Physical therapy can help to strengthen joints that have been weakened by damage and inflammation related to arthritis. It can also help to reduce joint pain and stiffness, as well as improve range of motion.
APTQI’s 20,000+ physical therapists are proud to provide individuals of all ages the care they need to live healthier, happier lives!
