  1. EXERCISE THERAPY – Exercises are used as an intervention that aims to improve the mobility and strength of the affected joint and therefore, improve functional ability. Exercise may include Mobilizing exercise (Increase or maintain range of motion) Strengthening exercise (that use resistance from putty, a gel ball, or an elastic band to strengthen joints and surrounding muscles)

  2. JOINT PROTECTION – Joint protection is a self-management approach that aims to maintain functional ability through changing/adapting working methods and movement patterns of affected joints. This can be with the use of devices such as splints or pacing activities. Changing these habits can help reduce pain, inflammation, and stress that is applied to joints during daily activity and may help preserve the integrity of joint structures longer term.

  3. ELECTROTHERAPY – Electrotherapy is an alternative to medication for treating arthritis pain. It follows the principle of electrical stimulation to decrease pain sensations. Electrotherapy devices deliver electrical stimulation by using electrodes that send electric pulses to your nerve endings via pads placed on your skin. It sends an electric current to your nerves to override pain signals. This causes a tingling sensation that you may find soothing. It also relieves pain by triggering the release of natural painkillers i.e. Endorphins in the brain. Electrotherapy also uses techniques such as ultrasound and low-level laser therapy which can help to increase the healing process and therefore reduce pain.
