Physiotherapy for swollen joints

Your health, our priority. Change is possible

How we can help

Usually occurring when fluid builds up in the soft tissues of our joints, stiffness and swelling can affect any part of the body. Some may experience swelling from a medical condition such as arthritis or gout whilst others may endure it following an injury or joint replacement surgery.

Joint swelling may have a real impact on a person’s mobility and is often uncomfortable.

Our method

To help you manage your joint swelling your physiotherapist will:

  • Assess your range of movement and determine how your joint swelling impacts your daily functioning
  • Examine your mobility and advise on walking aids
  • Prescribe suitable exercises
  • Look to see if your strength, balance, and coordination is impaired and address this accordingly
  • View the furniture in your home and recommend some easy adjustments
  • Advise on any suitable gadgets that may help you with activities around your home
  • Refer you to an Occupational Therapist if required
  • Show you stretches and massage techniques that may help relieve symptoms
  • Give you plenty of advice and guidance as understanding your condition is key to recovery

Our top tips to help your swollen & stiff joints

  • Keep moving
  • Carry out your physiotherapy exercises daily
  • Take anti-inflammatory medications
  • Use ice packs for 20 minutes at a time
  • Have a warm bath or shower if the injury is more chronic
  • Consider placing a hot water bottle near the affected site
  • Compress the joint with a support
  • Elevate your feet if they are affected
