Rheumatoid arthritis and physical therapy
Move Forward - 05/31/2017
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that causes joint inflammation and pain. Unlike osteoarthritis, which is the result of wear and tear on a specific joint, the effects of rheumatoid arthritis can be felt across a person’s entire body.
In this episode of Move Forward Radio, physical therapist and chair of Physical Therapy, Movement and Rehabilitation Sciences at Northeastern University Maura Daly-Iversen discusses what we know about rheumatoid arthritis, which affects approximately 1% of Americans, and how to effectively manage its effects.
