Osteoarthritis – misconceptions and pain management

Osteoarthritis, and the pain and stiffness associated with it, is one of the conditions we see and manage most frequently at Everything’s Connected Camberwell.

Often patients have Google searched Osteoarthritis and present with a misconception of having eroding brittle joints from wear and tear which needs protecting as much as possible, this however is incorrect.

The truth of the matter couldn’t be further away, when it comes to Osteoarthritis, “motion is the lotion” therefore exercise is the key. The severity of your condition depends on where you need to begin your rehabilitation program. Gentle walking programs and hydrotherapy are great places to start.

If you need help finding out the best way to reduce your Osteoarthritic pain and how to slow its progression, pop down and meet one of our experienced Osteopaths.

The most important thing is not letting your Osteoarthritis be an excuse for not keeping active!
