Kinima Physio Offers Unique Program for Osteoporosis in Knees, Hips

Kinima Physio Offers Unique Program for Osteoporosis in Knees, Hips

Perth, WA, Australia – Feb. 6, 2024 – Arthritis has traditionally been thought of as a condition that occurs in older individuals. Rob O’Mahony, owner of Kinima Physio, knows that’s not accurate. The practice offers the GLA:D®Australia program to addressarthritis in the knees and hips.

There are many different types of arthritis that can affect the hips and knees. It can occur at any age and typically develops in four stages. The first indications are usually minor in nature and overlooked. Over time, pain and stiffness becomes severe, limiting range of motion, mobility and preventing individuals from living the life they desire. Arthritis can affect one or both sides of the body.

GLA:D® Australia at physio West Perth is an exercise and education program, originally developed for those with osteoarthritis in the knee or hip. Osteoarthritis is the most common disease affecting joints, disrupting untold lifestyles. It typically strikes those age 65 and older, but can occur in people as young as 30.

The GLA:D® Australia program is suitable for a wide range of individuals experiencing knee and/or hip pain. It providesa safe and non-invasive alternative to joint replacement or potentially addictive prescription medications.

However, if there’s another reason for the pain and stiffness, such as inflammatory disease due to a fracture, a soft tissue or connective tissue injury,that individual may not be a good candidate. There are still elements of the program that can prove helpful.

The hips help provide balance and stability to the body during motion. The knees are required for any type of upright movement. Without physio North Perth treatment, arthritis gets worse and can lead to other injuries such as falls.

No doctor referral is required to access the GLA:D® Australia program. It’s just one of the reasons that clients say the practice provides the best physioin Perth. Anexamination by a therapist is needed to ascertain functional abilities and if the individual is a good candidate for the program. In addition to targeted exercise for osteoarthritis, individuals will receive education. Those who are eligible may be able to use Medicare to cover costs.
