Finding Relief from Arthritis Pain
with Occupational Therapy

Dave in the clinic.The pain caused by arthritis can affect how you function in daily life. Some people feel limited in life due to stiffness, pain and swelling caused by arthritic conditions. Tying on sneakers or walking the dog can be so physically painful that they just don't feel like doing anything at all.

Arthritis refers to over 100 types of joint dysfunctions that can occur when the cartilage protecting the joint becomes inflamed or irritated. The cartilage is the pad between bones that keeps the movements of the joint smooth and fluid. When the cartridge breaks down, the bones start to rub together with movement.

Age and the stress of repetitive motions can cause the cartilage at the ends of the bones to wear down or erode causing arthritis. Some symptoms of arthritis are swelling, stiffness, a decrease in range of motion, and in some cases, a great deal of pain.

Thousands of people are discovering occupational therapy and the enormous benefits it provides. Arthritis has no known cure, but there are many ways to make living and working with it comfortable and pain free.

Arthritis can affect any of the joints that give the human body the freedom of movement. Having arthritis can drastically lower your quality of life as you stop participating in activities that you enjoy!
