Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition of the synovial joints in the body. It can affect most
joints in the body and is most common in the fingers, toes, hips, knees and spine.
While there is no cure for osteoarthritis at the momement there are many ways you can minimise
your pain. Muscle therapy can help to increase movement in the joint and also take some of the
pressure off the joint thereby reducing your pain. This is by no means a cure and is only a
temporary solution but is safer and better for you than pain medication and antiinflammatories.
If the arthritis is severe enough then massage wont be enough to manage the pain and
medication or surgery will be the only options.
Yoga and pilates can help with flexibility and strength which can also improve your outcomes with osetoarthritis. There is a fine line between too much movement and exercise and just enough without causing yourself too musch discomfort.
Techniques that can help back pain include:
Sports & Remedial Massage
Active release techniques (ART)
Trigger Point Therapy
Deep Tissue Massage
