Arthritis and Physiotherapy Singapore
What is arthritis?
There are many
different types and subtypes of arthritis, most common amongst them is
osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage lining the
bones of the joints wears out due to degeneration (wear and tear),
causing painful bone-on-bone contact with mobility. In severe cases, the
bone may even start to break down, and this causes a lot of pain,
inflammation, swelling and joint stiffness, joint stiffness being the
biggest cause of pain in osteoarthritis.
intervention plays a major part in the general arthritic management,
including rheumatoid, juvenile, psoriatic etc. The focus of
rehabilitation for people with arthritis is:
- decreasing pain experienced
- increase mobility and movement
- improving muscle strength and stamina
- improving patient's overall mobility, function and independence
In our physiotherapy clinic, we often use the following mix of
techniques and approaches for pain relief, to decrease inflammation and
- Heat Therapy

deeper part of the body. Commonly used are hotpacks for superficial heat
provides electrical stimulation to stimulate the patient's body
tissues, and are useful in the management and intervention of acute as
well as long term arthritis, where often there is pain, inflammation and
- Physical treatments using Cold Therapy and Traction.
The best way to reduce joint pain, quite frankly, may simply be to
pursue natural treatment for arthritis with a joint relief supplement
with chondroitin and glucosamine. Multiple
studies demonstrate these two compounds not only reduce joint pain, they may
also protect cartilage and offer greater mobility. That's more that most
arthritis medications offer, and probably safer as well.
Try Joint Relief Solution. A blend of natural ingredients,
including glucosamine and chondroitin, it's also formulated with willow bark
extract. You might be surprised to learn that willow bark has the same active
ingredient as aspirin, and shows dramatic reduction in pain symptoms, with less
reliance on NSAIDs as well.
