Arthritis

Arthritis can be the result of injury, poor mechanics, overuse, the breakdown of cartilage surrounding joints, or an autoimmune disease. The spine, knees, feet, hips, and hands are the most common sites for arthritis, though it can happen in any joint. In addition to pain, arthritis usually is accompanied by a decrease in flexibility and an increase in stiffness and tenderness.

Although there is no cure for arthritis, physical therapy is a non-invasive approach that can help you to manage your symptoms. Many patients find that with physical therapy their symptoms decrease in the short term and do not progress as quickly in the long term.
