Physical Therapy

Physical therapy can help improve muscle strength to create better shock absorption during high impact activities. It can also improve range of motion and balance – both of which stimulate the natural production of HA within the joint. Subsequently, physical therapy provides another means to protect, lubricate, and cushion your joints. Therapists also can educate you in proper biomechanics so you can move and exercise while your body is properly aligned, since improper biomechanics accelerate the wear and tear of joints and worsens OA and create a negetive effect.
