Arthritis is the degeneration of your cartilage that works as a cushion between your bones, in order to prevent this, the focus should be on rejuvenating your cartilage which our equipment is capable of doing. The machines work on the cellular levels which help supply oxygen and nutrients to our cells therefore stimulate our body’s natural ability to heal itself and restore normal function. It’s very important to get an early diagnostic in order to slow down the progression, relieve pain and inflammation. We were always told that arthritis is an irreversible disease, but that’s simply not the case.
There are many types of arthritis, but the two most common ones are; Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Physiotherapy devices such as; Magnetic Biostimulation, 3D Interferential Current, Infrared Laser, Ultrasound, and Infrared Body Wrap, together with exercises given by our Physiotherapist can help treat Arthritis!
Osteoarthritis Arthritis occurs when the protective cartilage between your bones wears down which affects joints in your hands, knees, hips, and spine.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that affects more than just joints, it can damage a variety of body systems such as; skin, eyes, lungs, heart, and blood vessels. It occurs when your immune system attacks its own body’s tissues.
Unlike osteoarthritis, it affects the lining of your joints, causing a painful swelling that results in bone erosion and joint deformity. As the disease progresses the symptoms spread to your wrists, knees, ankles, elbows, hips, and shoulders. Over time disease causes joints to deform and shift out of place.
