Arthritis can be quite a vicious cycle. Those with arthritis often experience stiff joints due to avoiding movements that increase chronic aching. But, by not moving arthritic joints, the stiffness and aching only get worse. They key to breaking this cycle is physical therapy (PT). By treating, healing and preventing injuries, physical therapy helps to relieve aching, promote healing, and restore function and movement.
The on-site physical therapyy center at Arthritis Associates of South Florida is staffed with a licensed physical therapist with extensive experience in the treatment of patients with a variety of arthritic conditions.
