Osteoarthritis pain?

Have you been told there’s nothing you can do for your Osteoarthritis? Every week in the clinic I’ll see new clients that say they’ve been told there’s nothing they can do, they just need to wait until they can have a joint replacement. Now if there was something you could do to reduce your pain, improve your mobility, get you back to your daily activities, boost your energy and improve your life, would you want to know what it is?

Yep! Of course you would, and of course, we’re talking about exercise! Now before I lose you, it doesn’t have to be hard and it certainly doesn’t have to hurt. As Exercise Physiologists we are the experts in exercise prescription for chronic injuries & conditions, which means, yep, we are experts in treating Osteoarthritis!

So what is Osteoarthritis? You may notice some joint stiffness, joint swelling, a grinding or crunching feeling and joint pain. These symptoms are a result of the cartilage in the joint ‘breaking down’, resulting in bone-on-bone.

Normally when a healthy joint moves, it moves freely, with space and lubrication. In a joint with Osteoarthritis, the joint doesn’t have space or sufficient lubrication, and therefore it grinds and this can be painful. So how is that exercise is so effective in helping everyone with this condition?

We design a program for you that strengthens the muscles around the joint, resulting in more space in the joint, no more grinding and therefore less or no pain. How cool is that?!

We love explaining this to clients and then of course after gaining strength having them coming back in and sharing their success with us. So if you’re sick of joint pain and would like to avoid joint replacement surgery if possible, call us today on 0417 030 608 and we’ll get you moving!
