Arthritis/Osteoarthritis vs Osteoporosis Therapy

 

Our therapist has been nationally certified in treating Osteoporosis through the Meeks Method.    Osteoporosis is a condition where the density of the bone is reduced making the chance of that bone to fracture much higher.  This certification provided the necessary information to teach this population of people to improve their strength without increasing their risk for fracture.  Arthritis is a common condition that can affect the joint surfaces of your bones. The smooth and slippery protective surface over the ends of the bone, known as cartilage begins to break down over time.  A person’s day to day stress will impact the degree and rate at which the cartilage will wear down.    Not having this protective layer will cause pain and joint restrictions affecting your function.  Most individuals will change their activities to minimize the joint pain.  This will lead to worsening flexibility and weakness around the joint.   Our therapist is trained to address those deficits by educating you on movements that are safe and beneficial in restoring strength and flexibility to the surrounding joint area.  Gaining joint stability and improving your positioning can help to reduce pain and improve your daily function.
