What is a joint? A joint is the place where two or more bones are connected by thick bands of tissue, which are called ligaments. Joints enable us to bend, rotate and move our limbs and bodies. When joints are injured, damaged or diseased, these normal movements can cause pain.
Joint pain can be caused by injuries or fractures, or by degeneration of the joint tissues, a common occurrence as we age. One of the most common causes of many kinds of joint pain is arthritis, a disease that describes the wearing down or inflammation of joint tissue causing pain and stiffness.
Although some severe joint pain may require medical intervention, including surgery, many cases respond to non-invasive treatments. Let Physiomed’s team of health experts help you address your joint pain through treatment and exercise.
Your Physiomed treatment plan may include passive physiotherapy treatments and clinical conditioning exercise therapy to strengthen the muscles surrounding the affected joint, and improve flexibility and joint mobility. We’ll teach you highly targeted exercises and movements to gradually increase your range of motion, reduce stiffness and relieve the pain in your joints. Treatment may also include acupuncture, bracing and orthotics.
