Can physiotherapy help if I have Osteoarthritis?


In the UK approximately one in 10 adults have symptomatic clinically diagnosed Osteoarthritis with knee osteoarthritis being the most common.

Some of these people will need to have joint replacement surgery but there are lots of conservative options you can try before you consider surgery.

Physiotherapy is proven to be able to help individuals decrease their symptoms of pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis. Physiotherapy can also help slow down the degenerative process by improving strength in muscles around a joint, thereby reducing the wear and tear on the joint from everyday activities.
