Osteoarthritis is a common condition in which the quality of structures in and around a joint decreases. Reduced joint movement, pain and stiffness can greatly affect functioning.
Often the cause is unknown, but low-grade inflammation seems to play a key role. The risk of osteoarthritis increases with age. Although osteoarthritis is a progressive condition, physiotherapy can positively influence the consequences. The treatment focuses on information, lifestyle advice, increasing the range of motion of the joints and strengthening muscles through training.
The treatment aims to optimize daily functioning, reduce pain and delay or prevent surgery. After surgery, rehabilitation with extensive training facilities is the way to recover.
