Joint stiffness is a natural part of the aging process. But when it impedes your ability to participate in certain activities or causes you pain, you need to get relief. Arthritis is a major contributor to joint pain and our physical therapy in Fremont provides non-surgical relief from your joint pain. Two of the most prevalent types of arthritis we treat are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The common arthritis symptoms of pain and stiffness are usually caused by degenerative joint arthritis (osteoarthritis) while rheumatoid arthritis is a progressive disease with symptoms of tender, stiff, and swollen joints. RA often starts in smaller joints, like fingers, and gradually progresses to larger joint structures. Patients suffering from arthritis can benefit from many aspects of arthritis management. Our experts will treat your joint pain and assist you with improved joint function, increased muscle strength, and an improved fitness level. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic condition of the joints, affecting approximately 27 million Americans. It is a condition we have vast experience treating. OA can affect any joint, but it occurs most often in knees, hips, lower back and neck, small joints of the fingers and the bases of the thumb and big toe.
The treatment for you joint pain is non-invasive. The physical therapy in Fremont provides exercises to facilitate joint flexibility. In addition, our team of doctors may prescribe epidural steroid injections, branch blocks, or radiofrequency neurotomy to decrease joint inflammation and restore pain-free function. A radiofrequency neurotomy is a type of injection procedure used to treat facet joint pain or sacroiliac joint pain caused by arthritis or other degenerative changes, or from an injury. Your treatment will be determined after a thorough physical examination and assessment of your joint condition. There is no reason to suffer the pain of stiff joints any longer.
