One of the specialties of these gifted Bergen County licensed physical therapist is arthritis care. Two of the most prevalent types of arthritis we treat are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Patients suffering from arthritis can benefit from many aspects of arthritis management. Our experts will treat your arthritis pain and assist you with improved joint function, increased muscle strength, and an improved fitness level. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic condition of the joints, affecting approximately 27 million Americans. It is a condition we have vast experience treating. OA can affect any joint, but it occurs most often in knees, hips, lower back and neck, small joints of the fingers and the bases of the thumb and big toe. In healthy joints, a firm, rubbery material called cartilage covers the end of each bone. This cartilage allows the joint to smoothly glide during movement and acts as a cushion between the bones. In OA, the cartilage breaks down, causing pain, swelling and problems moving the joint. As OA worsens over time, bones may break down and develop growths called bone spurs.

Treatments for arthritis vary based upon the type of arthritis you have and the severity of the condition. A thorough medical history complete with appropriate imaging will provide the information the Bergen County licensed physical therapist at PMR need to develop a treatment plan. To see which options are best for you, call us today for an appointment.
