Contrary to popular belief, exercise is actually very good for those suffering from arthritis. Exercise not only helps build strength and flexibility (which is crucial for supple joints and supporting the joint), it can also help to reduce pain. It may be hard to take on board and overcome this belief because you may already be in a position where exercise creates pain, but knowing what you can do to help it is vital to the first stage of your rehab. In fact, a lack of exercise can actually INCREASE the pain you feel in your joints.
Our Approach to Care
Arthritis is formed by degenerative changes to the bones. Without going into too much detail, you cannot unfortunately reverse these changes. However, you CAN slow the process down.
You have probably felt your joints being stiff and immobile before? This is often caused by a stagnation of fluid which, once moved, flushes out and the pain then eases off. Think about your day to day experiences, you most likely wake up in the morning feeling stiff and aching, but once you start moving around the stiffness eases off? This is the action of moving fluids from one place to another. Then as the day goes on the stiffness and pain may return? This is most likely due to the supporting structures not doing their job to help with the joint. Either way, we are confident that at Bodylogics our Team of Healthcare professionals can help you reduce your pain and lead a better and happier life.
