What Is Osteoarthritis?
According to The Arthritis Society, osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. 1 in 10 Canadians is affected by it. It favours neither male nor female when they hit age 60. If you are suffering from osteoarthritis and are seeking treatment here in Ottawa, we can help.
Osteoarthritis is treated in a couple of ways. The use of anti-inflammatory medication is used to reduce inflammation and pain, while daily exercise aims to building strength, joint movement and endurance. We will evaluate your situation and develop a treatment program to meet your particular needs.
Pre and Post Surgery Treatment
Surgery replacing the affected joint does not replace the supporting muscles surrounding the new joint. It is very important; both before and after surgery ensure muscles are strong and healthy. Just a few minutes of targeted exercise a daily while ensure maximum chance of recovery.
