Christiana Care Physical Therapy

Arthritis Care

Physical therapy can often help to reduce or manage arthritis pain and restore range of motion, allowing you to return to activities that you enjoy. When your joints are painful to move, it's natural to avoid moving them. It is common for people with arthritis to lose range of motion in their joints and to actually find themselves in more pain because they stop moving.

Physical Therapy Plus can help you to:

  • Learn how to exercise your joints so that you regain your range of motion without causing additonal damage.
  • Learn techniques that will help you to perform daily activities like driving, dressing, climbing stairs and housekeeping while minimizing the pain from arthritis.
  • Learn how to use heat and cold to reduce inflammation, relieve pain and loosen stiff joints.
  • Develop a plan to reduce the stress that excess weight or poor posture can put on your arthritic joints.

Get started with a free arthritis screening

To assess your joint health and possibly qualify for a free arthritis screening, take our bone and joint assessment.  Just 10 questions, this assessment asks about family history of arthritis, your experience with joint pain and arthritis plus your challenges with daily activities.  If you qualify, a Christiana Care PT Plus representative will call you to schedule and arthritis screening.

To schedule an appointment or learn more, find the location nearest you.
