May- Arthritis awareness month

Rehab One team is here to help you with arthritis pain. We customized our treatment to what works best for you. Our patient centered approach and mindset is a combination of different treatments focusing on relieving symptoms and improving joint function. Physical therapy can be helpful for some types of arthritis. Exercises can improve range of motion and strengthen the muscles surrounding joints. In some cases, splints or braces may be warranted. 

Pay attention to your joints, whether sitting, standing, or engaging in activity.

1. Keep your joints moving. Do daily, gentle stretches that move your joints through their full range of motion!

2. Use good posture. A physical therapist can show you how to sit, stand and move correctly. 

Arthritis means inflammation or swelling of one or more joints. It describes more than 100 conditions that affect the joints, tissues around the joint, and other connective tissues. Specific symptoms vary depending on the type of arthritis, but usually include joint pain and stiffness.

Arthritis is the swelling and tenderness of one or more joints. The main symptoms of arthritis are joint pain and stiffness, which typically worsen with age. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis causes cartilage — the hard, slippery tissue that covers the ends of bones where they form a joint — to break down. Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease in which the immune system attacks the joints, beginning with the lining of joints.


The most common signs and symptoms of arthritis involve the joints. Depending on the type of arthritis, signs and symptoms may include:

  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Decreased range of motion
