If you suffer from throbbing joints and stiff, arthritic movement, you’re not alone. Arthritis is the most common form of disability for Americans over age 50, affecting roughly one in five adults—and the numbers are growing.
Arthritis is actually an umbrella term that encompasses several conditions, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Osteoarthritis occurs when the tissues at your joint (cartilage) begin to break down. Common amongst older women, rheumatoid arthritis indicates a weakened lining of the joints, causing inflammation and pain.
Here at Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR), our primary goal is to reduce or eliminate your arthritis, and give you a new lease on movement.
Our expert team of specialists will start by honing in on exactly what’s causing your arthritis pain. We’ll then treat you using state-of-the-art chiropractic techniques. Our goal is to restore range of motion and improve flexibility of the joints.
Here at PMR, we don’t stop at treatment. We offer a range of modalities, including physical therapy, massage, and nutritional counseling. For example, your diet or weight could be affecting your condition–particularly if you have issues with inflammation. We look at all of this holistically.
Don’t hesitate to take the next step toward a better, pain-free life—call or make an appointment with us today at one of our locations in Danbury CT or Brewster NY!
