Knee Osteoarthritis (OA)

March 07, 2017 at 3:21 PM

If you are suffering from arthritis that is slowing you down and stopping you from doing the things you love... help could be just a phone call away. There is now a lot of good quality research to support the use of manual therapy ('hands on' physio), exercise, and strength training to improve function, reduce pain and to reduce disability in people with arthritis.  

At Auckland Physiotherapy we can help you get back on track by prescribing personalised home exercise programmes. We generally recommend a combination of manual therapy and exercise based rehabilitation to reduce your pain and get you more active again. All our treatments are based on your own personal goals and ability. 

For more information check out the research article below to read a summary of how Physiotherapy can help your arthritis.
