Arthritis and Back Pain
Arthritis in the back (and arthritis in general) is a cery common condition, and does not need to be associated with pain in many situations. After all, we are all predisposed to wear and tear which is what arthritis is in essence.
However, if you are reading this you are probably suffering some discomfort or pain from this type of wear and tear. Physiotherapy (known as Physical Therapy in the US) can assist with the treatment of back, neck and shoulder pain that is associated with Arthritis. The treatment for arthritis in the spine is decided by the type and severity of your back arthritis as well as your overall health condition. In this section, we will examine the different types of arthritis and treatments for each.
