Gout is a common and complex form of arthritis that can affect anyone. Characterised by sudden, severe attacks of pain, swelling, redness and tenderness in the joints, often the joint at the base of the big toe, gout can be intensely painful. It's caused by a buildup of uric acid in the blood, which forms hard crystals in the joints. At The Rehab Hub, we offer a comprehensive approach to managing gout, utilising strategies such as rehabilitation, laser therapy, magnetotherapy, and more.
Gout attacks can occur suddenly, often waking you up in the middle of the night with the sensation that your big toe is on fire. The affected joint is hot, swollen and so tender that even the weight of the sheet on it may seem intolerable. Fortunately, gout is manageable, and with the right treatment plan, you can control the symptoms and prevent future flare-ups.
The Rehab Hub's Approach to Gout
At The Rehab Hub, we focus on treating the individual, not just the disease. Our comprehensive approach to managing gout is designed to reduce symptoms, improve joint function, and enhance overall wellness.
Rehabilitation is an essential part of our gout treatment plan. Our expert physiotherapists and podiatrists devise personalised programs to help maintain and improve joint function, enhance flexibility, and reduce the risk of future gout attacks.
We utilise advanced laser therapy, a non-invasive treatment that uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation. This therapy can effectively alleviate the pain and inflammation associated with gout, promoting healing and symptom relief.
Another innovative treatment we offer for managing gout is magnetotherapy. This therapy uses magnetic fields to stimulate the body's natural healing process. It's been shown to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and provide pain relief - all crucial in managing gout symptoms.
In addition to these, we offer various other treatments tailored to your specific needs. These may include advice on lifestyle modifications, diet changes to reduce uric acid levels, pain management strategies, and more.
