Arthritis is a broad term that covers a group of over 100 diseases and conditions. Attempting to navigate it alone, with what it means for a lifestyle and how to go about treatment is not reasonable.

VAUGHAN, Ontario - March 5, 2018 - PRLog -- Being one of the best physiotherapy clinics ( in the GTA, MedRehab Group can help! In this week's blog, Medrehab will cover some of the main options to consider when approaching an arthritis condition.

One of the first elements to evaluate is the potential causes of arthritis. The cause of pain should influence the treatment individuals will be receiving. Common causes of arthritis include age, genetics, excess weight, an injury history, infections and careers which involve strenuous physical activity. Next, consider symptoms and the type of arthritis; osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, and gout. Finally, consider the values. Need of  natural treatment or have any pre-existing medical conditions that might affect the ability to participate in some treatments? Any specific tolerances and intolerances that a practitioner needs to be aware of? Bringing answers to these questions when seeing a therapist will help them understand expectations.

In terms of actual treatment, there are a couple standard procedures every clinic should provide. A therapist will conduct several physical exams to analyze a condition, progress, and levels of pain. Based on those results they will create treatment plans that normally consist of medication, physical therapy, external aids, weight-loss guidance and in rare cases, surgery. Depending on what is preferred out of those plans a doctor should cater to those opinions and help find a plan that works.
