Tackling Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune condition that affects more than just your joints. It can also damage a variety of body systems, including your skin, eyes, lungs, heart and blood vessels. This chronic inflammatory disorder typically attacks the lining of your joints (synovium) causing painful swelling that can eventually result in joint deformity. Here at The Rehab Hub, we have an array of innovative treatments to help manage RA symptoms, with strategies including rehabilitation, laser therapy, magnetotherapy and more.
Understanding Rheumatoid Arthritis
Unlike the wear-and-tear damage of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of your joints, causing a painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity. It's a systemic condition, meaning it can affect the entire body, not just the joints. Symptoms include joint pain and swelling, stiffness, fatigue, and fever.
The Rehab Hub's Approach to Rheumatoid Arthritis
At The Rehab Hub, our focus is to treat the person, not just the disease. Our comprehensive approach towards managing rheumatoid arthritis is designed to alleviate symptoms, improve joint function, and promote overall wellness.
Rehabilitation is a cornerstone of our RA treatment strategy. Our dedicated team of physiotherapists and podiatrists devise personalised programs to strengthen the muscles around your joints, enhance flexibility, and promote optimal joint function. These programs also focus on maintaining a balanced range of motion and stability, helping you regain confidence in your movements.
We employ state-of-the-art 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 RA, fostering healing and offering symptom relief.
Another innovative treatment we offer for managing RA 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 for managing RA symptoms.
In addition to these, we offer various other treatments tailored to your specific needs. These may include advice on lifestyle modifications, pain management strategies, assistive devices and more.
