Does your arthritis have you in pain and keep you from being as active as you would like?
Osteoarthritis, also known as OA and commonly referred to as "arthritis", can be be present in most joints of the body at any age. Arthritis is the degeneration of a joint where the cartilage has slowly diminished over time and then the joint can become "bone on bone". Arthritis can be very debilitating and frustrating as it can cause pain while trying to perform simple daily activities such as standing up and walking. Some people are ready to have surgery, such as a joint replacement, to get rid of their pain while others are not quite ready to take this step and want to look into other options. Luckily for you, we are here to help educate you on these options and are happy to discuss them in further detail with you. We are also here to help you recover from surgery and get you back to your activity filled lifestyle. Please call our Hays or Ellis clinic for a free consult or to set up an evaluation with one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy.
