Arthritis Treatments in Thurles

The term arthritis is frequently used to explain a variety of aches and pains.
In reality, there are several different types of arthritis (osteoarthritis, degenerative arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile, and infective) all with varying degrees of severity and requiring different types of treatment.

Osteoarthritis, sometimes known as degenerative or “wear and tear” arthritis, is the most prevalent kind of the disease. Although it is commonly called degenerative joint disease (DJD), it is crucial to keep in mind that there is a wide range of severity and that surgical joint replacement is only necessary for end-stage degenerative joint disease.

Combinations of physiotherapy including joint mobilization, stretching, targeted muscle strengthening, and posture training can effectively treat and manage a large number of patients. The goal is to minimize discomfort and enhance function in arthritic joints when the arthritis itself does not go away.
