What is Arthritis?
Arthritis is a health condition that causes joint pain, stiffness, and swelling. It happens when the cartilage, a smooth tissue that covers the ends of the bones in the joints, gets damaged. Cartilage helps bones move smoothly, but when it wears away, the bones start rubbing against each other, causing pain and discomfort.
There are many types of arthritis, but the two most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis happens when the cartilage gets damaged due to wear and tear, while rheumatoid arthritis is a type of autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system attacks the joints, causing pain, swelling, and stiffness.
Physical medicine supports the body’s ability to restore function and motion back into these affected areas while providing novel protocols and treatments that aide in healing process.
