Many people suffer from joint pain caused by a variety of reasons, often times by disorder like arthritis or an injury. If you or someone you know has been experiencing joint pain, Advance Physical Therapy in Queens is here to help.
Many different disorders can cause joint pain, so you might be prone to it if you have been diagnosed with one of the following, among others:
- Psoriatic arthritis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
How do you know if you are experiencing joint pain? Aside from a diagnosis of one of the above disorders, some of the symptoms of joint pain are a feeling of pressure or weight-bearing resistance whenever you try to move that joint. You might also feel warmth, swelling, or tenderness in that area as well. Luckily, our team at Advance Physical Therapy in Queens can help you with the joint pain you may be suffering from.
Our physical therapists can help treat your joint pain by using natural methods and show you how to reduce your own joint pain. Soaking your joints in Epsom salts provides a quick relief and will relax the affected area. Using hot-and-cold therapy, by switching between heat packs and ice packs for 20 minute periods will reduce swelling. At Advance Physical Therapy, we can also show you corrective exercises that can help your joints and improve your mobility, as well as showing you how to eat healthier. Eating healthier by including more Omega-3 fatty acids into your diet will reduce inflammation, while processed foods can cause severe inflammation.
At Advance Physical Therapy we offer our wellness program, which can help you achieve your goals of reducing joint pain as well guiding you to a healthier lifestyle. We will show you what methods, exercises, and dietary plans are right for you. If you are looking for physical therapy in Queens, contact us today to get started!
