Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune condition that primarily affects the joints, causing pain, stiffness, and inflammation. It can significantly impact a person’s quality of life, making everyday activities challenging. Physioveda Medical Center understands the multifaceted nature of Rheumatoid Arthritis and offers a specialized and comprehensive physiotherapy treatment approach to manage and alleviate the symptoms associated with this condition.
Understanding Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid Arthritis is characterized by the immune system mistakenly attacking synovium, the lining of the membranes that surround the joints. This leads to inflammation, which can eventually result in joint damage and deformities. While medications are often prescribed to manage pain and inflammation, physiotherapy plays a crucial role in improving joint function, reducing disability, and enhancing overall well-being.
