Though arthritis is often thought of as a disease of the elderly, it impacts a significant number of Canadians from all age groups. Currently, the Arthritis Society estimates that as many as 1 in 5 Canadians over the age of 15 struggle with this painful condition, making it one of the nation’s leading causes of disability.
To reduce the pain associated with arthritis and gout, our team of physiotherapists, registered massage therapists, and chiropractors develop treatment plans specifically tailored to the needs of each patient. Generally, therapies for arthritis focus on improving joint flexibility and muscle strength, as muscles play a crucial role in supporting arthritic joints. Patients will also be educated on ways to adjust their habits to prevent future joint injury.
