Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a condition characterised by joint pain and inflammation. In contrast to osteoarthritis which is often due to the natural ageing process, Rheumatoid arthritis is the result of a problem with the immune system. Often RA requires special medication via a consultant rheumatologist. Once diagnosed, physiotherapists can help to manage the symptoms or acute flares of the condition through manual therapy and injections if required.
