Battling the effects of arthritis can be very difficult and it is true, there is no reversing your arthritis. The winter can be an added stress because it is very difficult to get exercise. What some people don’t know though is that physical therapy can help with your symptoms.
Studies have shown that increased physical activity can greatly improve the symptoms of arthritis. A study done by Deyle GD on physical therapy treatment effectiveness for osteoarthritis of the knee showed that patients treated with both manual therapy and exercises showed twice the pain relief and improvement of function than of those who just did exercises on their own.
