Understanding Osteoarthritis

It’s a condition that affects a large portion of the population and is characterised by pain, reduced mobility and a feeling of being overly stiff or tight in your muscles and joints. Due to the nature of the condition, it can occur in people who have had a previous injury, have worked in labour specific jobs, have played large volumes of sport or are over the age of 65.

Osteo-Arthritis is essentially the “wearing out” of cartilage and bone within a joint. This damage opens nerve endings in the bone that causes pain during movement. Osteo-arthritis is degenerative in nature, meaning that once is has occurred, we can’t reverse the damage done.

Research has shown that the more active someone who has arthritis is, the lower pain they report with everyday tasks. It has also shown that completing regular activity has better outcome measures post surgery for those that require a joint replacement.

Because physical activity and movement can elicit pain, this stops people from keeping active as they think that pain equals harm. With osteo-arthritis, if you do not move your joints and take them through movements aimed at improving joint range of motion, this pain will only become worse when you do decide to move.

We offer exercise physiology services that can be 1 on 1 or in a group setting. You can complete your exercises at home, at a pool, or in our brand new, state of the art gym.

We will talk extensively about your medical history and personal goals that matter to you, and then devise a plan that best suits you.

If you haven’t been in a gym before, haven’t completed any structured exercise previously and are a little apprehensive about the process, our highly qualified allied health professionals will be there every step of the way to guide you.

There are a number of avenues in which people can come to see us, the best of which is to simply ring and ask as many questions as you like! Other plans and what we offer;

  • Private Health Rebates

  • Enhanced Primary Care Plans

  • Department of Veterans Affairs

  • Return to WorkSA and MVA claims
