Rheumatology can affect joints and be extremely painful. At Health Quest Physio & X-Ray Clinic, we have a wide range of therapies to treat patients experiencing the early phase of pain caused by acute rheumatological conditions, as well as the late recovery phase. We provide a thorough clinical assessment of the rheumatological condition, followed by advice on efficient management.
The following methods of treatment are typically used for rheumatological disorders:
- Electrotherapeutic modalities – To curb pain during the early phase
- Exercises – To stretch out tightened muscles, and to strengthen weaker ones
- Orthotics and bracing – To provide additional support and ease pain
- Postural and ergonomic advice – To prevent contractures and deformities
