This inflammatory disease affects the joints, making them feel tired, aching and swollen. Affecting wrists, hands, feet, knees and hips this disease can attack almost any joint in your body.
Creating difficulties in your ability to move, acute pain when you do and ongoing chronic pain the rest of the time, we help you to find ways to manage and improve this ongoing condition.
There are two main types of arthritis that people suffer from; Osteoarthritis causing joint pain and stiffness and Rheumatoid Arthritis, an autoimmune disease which attacks in cycles causing inflammation, swelling and pain of the joints.
These degenerative conditions are mostly caused by the regular wear and tear on your joints which comes with ageing, although severe overuse, being obese or overweight can create further complications.
