The physiotherapist will assess the affected joint range of motion, muscle flexibility, strength, and posture. They ask you about personal daily activity and your family history. Then they make a treatment plan and educate you about progress accordingly. The physiotherapist’s initial goal is to reduce pain and swelling, prevent joint stiffness and muscle tightness. To prevent arthritis avoid pressure from joints, use a proper brace or splint to protect joints, maintain a healthy weight and avoid injury and repetitive movement like running, jumping, etc. Modify the daily activity that increases pain. The physiotherapist can also train your overall fitness level.
