Why Choose Physical Therapy for Arthritis?

There are many benefits of physical therapy for treating arthritis. One of the most frustrating side effects of arthritis is losing mobility. Patients often report that their joints become stiff and, in some cases, frozen.

Physical therapy helps increase mobility and range of motion. Therapy strengthens the muscles and joints around the affected areas. This helps support the arthritic joints and reduces pain and discomfort in other areas of the body.

We’ll Help You Keep Moving

There are multiple treatments for arthritis. Low-impact activities like walking, swimming, and dancing can be great for your joints. If appropriate, your physical therapist may have you perform light exercises during your session.

Movement is key to helping your body stay agile. An elliptical can be a great tool that isn’t hard on your joints but gets the body in motion. Speak with your therapist today to discuss your options!

Magneto Transduction Therapy (EMTT)

One of the best therapies for arthritis is Extracorporeal Magneto Transduction Therapy, or EMTT for short. This pulsed electromagnetic therapy can be life-changing for some.

This non-invasive technique uses electromagnetic frequencies to target affected areas. One of the best parts is there is no downtime with this treatment!

EMTT is 40 times more effective than similar therapies. Because of its reach, electromagnetic technology treats at a cellular level making this deeper penetration technology more effective.

Magnetolith EMTT therapy can be used for a variety of conditions. Anyone can benefit from it! EMTT can reduce minor aches and pains and aid in the recovery of stress fractures, tennis elbow, and much more.
