Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common joint disorder often referred to as the "wear and tear" arthritis. It's a progressive condition that slowly damages the joint's cartilage, leading to pain, stiffness, and in some cases, limited mobility. However, the good news is that innovative treatments and a holistic approach can significantly manage symptoms and improve quality of life. At The Rehab Hub, we offer such an approach, utilising a combination of rehabilitation, laser therapy, magnetotherapy, and more.
OA primarily affects the hands, knees, hips, and spine. It develops gradually over time, usually due to factors such as aging, obesity, previous joint injuries, overuse of the joint, weak muscles, and genetic factors. Symptoms can vary greatly from person to person, but the most common include joint pain, stiffness, swelling, and decreased flexibility.
The Rehab Hub’s Approach to Osteoarthritis
At The Rehab Hub, we believe in treating the individual, not just the disease. Our multi-modal approach towards managing osteoarthritis is designed to alleviate symptoms, improve joint function, and enhance overall well-being.
Rehabilitation is an essential aspect of our OA treatment plan. Our expert physiotherapists and podiatrists tailor personalised programs to strengthen the muscles surrounding your joints, improve flexibility, and promote better joint function. These tailored programs also address any imbalance or instability issues, helping you regain confidence in your movement.
We employ advanced laser therapy, a non-invasive treatment that uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation. This therapy can effectively reduce pain and inflammation associated with OA, promoting healing and providing relief from symptoms.
Magnetotherapy is another innovative treatment we offer for OA management. This therapy utilises magnetic fields to stimulate the body's natural healing process. It has been shown to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain, all of which are critical for managing OA symptoms.
In addition to these, we may also utilise other treatments as per your individual needs. These may include lifestyle modification advice, pain management strategies, and assistive devices, among others.
