Arthritis affects at least 1 in 11 Australians which is more than 2.1 million people! If you experience joint stiffness or pain, you are not alone…
Broadly speaking, Arthritis is a wearing of the cartilage to the point where osteophytes or bone spurs, begin to form in gaps of cartilage. This creates inflammation – pain and stiffness in the joint/s affected. Arthritis most commonly occurs in load-bearing joints – Knees, hips, lower back & neck in particular.
Our Clinical Exercise (Pilates) classes are ideal for helping to treat arthritis, with the individually tailored program our physiotherapists prescribe allowing for long-term grading of muscles and joints which can help combat the troubles faced by those with arthritis. Running through this program under the constant supervision of our physios allows for constant adjustment and personalisation based on everyone’s individual presentation and needs.
For more information on Pilates and Arthritis check out the following blog from Sam Lutze, one of Therapia’s amazing physios:
