Joint Aches and Pains

As we age, joint pain becomes a common problem for many elderly individuals. If you or a loved one are experiencing discomfort in the joints, it may be time to seek help from a chartered physiotherapist.

Our chartered physiotherapists at Medella Home Therapy understand the unique challenges that come with joint pain in older age and are equipped to provide the necessary support and care. Here’s what a physiotherapist will do to help you or your loved one manage joint aches and pains:

  • Comprehensive Assessment: Our physiotherapists will begin by conducting a comprehensive assessment to determine the cause of the joint pain. They will consider factors such as medical history, lifestyle, and the presence of any underlying conditions.

  • Personalised Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment, our physiotherapists will create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals. This plan may include a combination of exercises, stretches, manual therapy, and pain management techniques.

  • Pain Management: Our physiotherapists will work with you to develop strategies for managing joint pain, including the use of heat and ice therapy, electrical stimulation, and other modalities.

  • Exercise and Stretching: Our physiotherapists will teach you exercises and stretches designed to improve joint mobility, flexibility, and strength. These exercises can help reduce pain, prevent joint stiffness, and improve your overall quality of life.

  • Manual Therapy: Our physiotherapists may use manual therapy techniques, such as massage and joint mobilization, to relieve pain and improve joint function.

  • Education and Advice: Our physiotherapists will educate you on the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including proper posture, diet, and exercise. They will also provide advice for carers and family members on how to support you in your recovery.
