chronic pain / fatigue

Pain that persists for more than 12 weeks despite medication or treatment is referred to as chronic or persistent pain. Most people recover from pain following an injury or operation and return to normalcy. However, there are situations when the pain lasts longer or appears suddenly without any prior history of an accident or surgery.

Inflammation and pain in the joints and bones are symptoms of the common disorder known as arthritis. Physiotherapy is a very effective treatment for easing arthritis-related symptoms.


  • Long term (chronic) pain that varies significantly in frequency, severity and characteristics

  • Joint stiffness

  • Joint inflammation that can vary in severity and joints present a lot larger than normal

  • Joint deformity especially in rheumatoid arthritis

  • Reduction of movements in the affected joint as a result of chronic pain, swelling and stiffness

  • Poor mobility if lower limb joints are affected

  • Poor function

  • One joint or several joints may be affected

  • Small lumps can develop in affected joints but are usually harmless

  • Inflammation of surrounding soft tissues such as the tendons

  • Anaemia, fever, fatigue and weight loss may occur in some cases.

  • Muscle aches and pains

There is no known cure for arthritis, but there are a number of therapy choices that can lessen its long-term pain and other symptoms. Analgesics (painkillers), disease-modifying anti-rheumatic medications (DMARDs), routine exercise, and physiotherapy are all possible forms of treatment.

Inflammation and pain in the joints and bones are symptoms of the common disorder known as arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are the two main types of arthritis.

Osteoarthritis, which produces discomfort and swelling, is primarily brought on by wear and tear of the bone ends of a joint during movement.

The more severe form of arthritis, known as rheumatoid arthritis, is brought on when the immune system assaults and damages the body's own tissues, in this case, the joints. The damaged joints become painful, swollen, and deformed as a result..

Heart and circulation issues are referred to as cardiovascular issues. One important system that is essential to your survival is your cardiovascular system. This is why, if there is a problem, it is crucial to receive efficient treatment. Cardiovascular issues can be quite crippling, and physiotherapy is essential to recovery. The goal of physical therapy is to gradually get the patient back to their previous level of activity.

A skilled physical therapist will evaluate your cardiovascular health, pain thresholds, and muscle strength. Either at home or at one of our clinic locations, assessments can be given. You will have the chance to review the assessment's results and set specific goals with your therapist. A short-term objective would be to walk 10 metres with a stick in two weeks. To swim three laps of the pool in five minutes might be a more long-term objective. Goals vary from person to person and are based on your present level of fitness, your interests, and your aspirations. To assist you in achieving these goals within the allotted time span, your physiotherapist will collaborate closely with you.

You will be given an exercise regimen to follow outside of therapy sessions by your physiotherapist. These workouts will help you achieve your goals and be interesting, difficult, and exciting. You must learn how to warm up before exercise and cool down afterward if you want to securely control your heart rate. Your physiotherapist will assist you in learning how to keep an eye on your angina symptoms to lower the likelihood of developing future cardiac issues.
