Managing Osteoarthritis

How can Physiotherapy help with Osteoarthritis?

Physiotherapy is a rehabilitation profession that helps people with a range of conditions, including osteoarthritis, to maximise their physical potential – often through exercise and physical activity.

Exercise and physical activity are safe and evidence-based first line management strategies for osteoarthritis

Exercise and physical activity are safe and effective for people with osteoarthritis and play a key role in improving and maintaining movement and function. Exercise can even reduce pain and in some cases delay or prevent a joint replacement.

Physiotherapists play a vital role in reducing the burden of this disease by not only helping people manage osteoarthritis but also in educating on the benefits of exercise and pain relief.
