Sincerely yours, Renard J.
I tore a muscle in my knee when I was ice skating and had to have an operation to fix it. I ended up having 2 different leg casts over 3 month. My leg was skinny and weak and it hurt when I walked on it. Jennifer was my favorite therapist and with her help - I learned how to walk again! Everyone at Therapy Unlimited are so nice and they always told me what a great job I was doing even when I was grumpy!
Pain is the way your body tells you something is wrong. Most types of arthritis cause pain in your joints You might have trouble moving around. Some kinds of arthritis can affect different parts of your body. So, along with pain in your joints, you may:
- have a fever
- lose weight
- have trouble breathing
- get a rash or itch
These symptoms could also be signs of other illnesses so if you suspect you may have arthritis, schedule an appointment with your primary care physician. In the meantime, you may find taking a warm shower, doing some gentle stretching exercises, icing the sore area or simple rest of the sore area may help with the pain and discomfort.
