Welcome to Zenith Physiotherapy and Wellness – Your Solution for Arthritis Pain

Are you experiencing constant pain and inflammation from arthritis, making everyday activities a struggle? You’re not alone. Arthritis affects over 54 million adults in Canada. While there’s no cure for arthritis, you can effectively manage your symptoms with the help of chiropractic therapy at Zenith Physiotherapy and Wellness.

Arthritis is an umbrella term for more than 100 different conditions, but the two most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis affects over 30 million Canadians, while rheumatoid arthritis impacts nearly 1.5 million.

Typically, arthritis starts with achy, stiff joints, and as it progresses, it leads to pain, inflammation, and reduced mobility. While arthritis can affect any joint in your body, the most commonly affected areas are the knees, hips, hands, and spine.

Living with advanced arthritis can severely limit your overall function and independence. Tasks that were once simple, like opening a jar, climbing stairs, or getting out of bed, become more challenging due to poor mobility, reduced grip strength, and diminished fine motor skills.

At Zenith Physiotherapy and Wellness, our chiropractic therapy offers a comprehensive and evidence-based solution to manage arthritis pain and improve mobility. Our highly skilled chiropractors will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan will include targeted exercises, manual therapy, and education on joint protection strategies.

We take a results-oriented approach to your care, focusing on helping you achieve tangible improvements. Many people worry that any activity that causes pain might worsen their condition, but this isn’t necessarily the case. Our team will provide scientifically-backed methods to help you enhance your mobility, strength, balance, and coordination so you can resume your active life.

The Most Common Types of Arthritis

With over 100 different types of arthritis, navigating treatment options can be overwhelming. Fortunately, our chiropractors in Airdrie, AB are experienced in treating all types of arthritis. Here are some of the common types we treat:

  • Osteoarthritis (OA): The most prevalent type of arthritis in Canada, OA is a degenerative joint disease that occurs when cartilage gradually breaks down. It commonly affects the knees, hips, hands, and spine, leading to joint pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA): RA is an autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks joint tissue, causing pain, swelling, and potential joint deformity. It often affects the small joints in the hands and feet, hindering daily activities like walking and grasping objects.
  • Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA): PsA is an inflammatory form of arthritis that affects up to 30% of individuals with psoriasis. It leads to joint pain, swelling, and stiffness, commonly affecting the hands, feet, knees, and spine, thereby limiting daily activities.
  • Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS): AS is a form of inflammatory arthritis that primarily affects the spine. It causes pain and stiffness in the lower back, hips, and shoulders. Over time, AS can lead to the fusion of the spine, significantly impacting mobility and quality of life.

Each type of arthritis presents its own unique symptoms and treatment requirements. Our chiropractors are highly skilled in addressing these challenges to ensure successful management of your condition and regaining functionality. Through targeted exercise, manual therapy, and more, we’ll help you find the relief you need.

Additionally, we’ll perform a hands-on assessment to identify areas of pain, stiffness, and limited mobility.

Our assessment includes joint range of motion tests to evaluate joint health, strength tests to assess muscle function, and movement screens to identify compensatory patterns or imbalances that may contribute to further impairments.

  • Braces: We may recommend orthopedic braces designed to support, stabilize, and protect a joint or body part, offering additional assistance in managing arthritis.
  • Assistive Devices: If necessary, we can suggest assistive devices such as walkers, canes, or hiking sticks to improve mobility, maintain balance, ensure safety, and enhance independence.
