Arthritis is a disorder of the joints that often affects seniors and serious athletes, but it can happen to anyone.
“To make you function again, you have to come at it from so many different angles, and physiotherapy is a key angle. They have this very intimate knowledge on how things are connected, how things work, and even more importantly, is how to fix them.” – Denise
Both Denise and Joyce were surprised by diagnoses of arthritis in their early twenties. Within a year of her first symptoms, Denise was using a wheelchair. For both women, everyday actions became painful and their worlds were turned upside down.
Denice and Joyce both relied on strong teams around them to take care of them and keep them going on a journey of recovery. This included their families, and their physiotherapists.
After regaining abilities they had previously taken for granted, they both profess a new appreciation for life, bodies, and movement. Joyce, in remission from rheumatoid arthritis after 30 years, can run and play with her grandchildren. This is every physio’s dream for our clients; that they can get back to doing what matters most to them.
“Physiotherapy gave me my life back.” – Joyce
As a key part of a multifaceted approach to health, physiotherapy can help you get there.
