Arthritis is a chronic condition that affects many Australians. As the average life expectancy of the population increases, the number of people diagnosed with arthritis also grows. According to leading researcher, Access Economics, current trends suggest that by 2050, 7 million Australians will suffer from some form of arthritis.
There is a widely held belief that arthritis is simply a consequence of age: the pain of growing old. But it is not a natural part of ageing. In fact, 2.4 million of all people suffering from the disease are of working age.
At Southside Physio, we have a special interest in arthritis and an in-depth understanding of the needs of arthritis sufferers. If you suffer from this debilitating condition, we would love the opportunity to be able to work with you to minimise pain and movement dysfunction and facilitate your ability to have a healthy lifestyle. We will work closely with your G.P., rheumatologist and the Arthritis Foundation to optimise your treatment.
