Arthritis is a health condition that causes joint pain, stiffness, and swelling. It happens when the cartilage, a smooth tissue that covers the ends of the bones in the joints, gets damaged. Cartilage helps bones move smoothly, but when it wears away, the bones start rubbing against each other, causing pain and discomfort.
There are many types of arthritis, but the two most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis happens when the cartilage gets damaged due to wear and tear, while rheumatoid arthritis is a type of autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system attacks the joints, causing pain, swelling, and stiffness.
Physical medicine supports the body’s ability to restore function and motion back into these affected areas while providing novel protocols and treatments that aide in healing process.
Arthritis is the leading cause of physical disability in the United States. It affects more than 54 million adults and is a major cause of pain and limitations in daily activities.
The most common arthritis symptoms include:
Our medical providers perform a detailed history and examination to discover exactly what has and is occurring with your arthritis. Special screening devices, protocols and test, including digital imaging, help the providers gain better insight into the extent of the joint damage and determine which treatment will best serve each individual patient.
Our clinic offers relief through a range of treatments, such as our Accelerated Joint Recovery Protocol, which decreases inflammation and supports & strengthens the body’s ability to restore function, while relieving pain.

As the most logical first step after identifying and correcting the root cause of any pain, physical therapy is an excellent way to promote active physical recovery from injury, illness, surgery, or some other limiting disability. The main goal of an effective physical therapy program is to help patients achieve the level of function and mobility that enables them to return to their normal activities.
While physical therapy aims to help patients recover completely, in some cases it may simply help patients successfully adjust to a new physical reality. The physicians and clinicians at Ultimate Health Medical Clinic take a whole-person approach to physical therapy, using state-of-the-art technologies, medical massage, and other beneficial, natural methods to help patients reach their potential as quickly as possible.
Successful physical therapy requires active patient participation, and that starts with movement, which is critical to injury recovery. That’s because movement helps decrease inflammation, which is your body’s natural response to injury. Although inflammation initially promotes healing, it can interfere with your muscles’ firing patterns and create instability when it’s allowed to persist. By increasing blood flow and decreasing inflammation, movement helps restore a wider range of motion, thereby giving your muscles what they require to restore normal function and regain strength. Early, precise movement that incorporates specific exercises and stretches is a big part of what makes physical therapy so effective at promoting recovery and minimizing long-term damage.
The team at Ultimate Health Medical Clinic begins by gathering information with a consultation, history, and comprehensive physical exam. This may include evaluating your nervous system and assessing your pain, depending on the nature of your problem. Once you have a diagnosis, the team designs an effective physical therapy program to meet your needs. Physical therapy has 4 major components:
Customized exercise plan
A specific movement plan that includes stretches and strengthening exercises designed to improve your strength, flexibility, stability, and range of motion
Medical massage can correct problems with connective tissue, which helps stimulate blood flow, encourage healing, and promote relaxation
Natural pain management
Topical creams, heat, or ice may help reduce pain and inflammation, effectively promoting mobility

Physical therapy is a huge part of my sports rehab for my shoulder, and I love the PT techs and entire medical team at Ultimate Health. They push me to work harder when I am in clinic for a PT appointment, and they even give me homework with stretches and moves I can do on my own to help my progress. I am so thankful for the medical team at Ultimate Health as they are just as excited to get me back to my regular workouts as I am. I love that I’m able to combine so many services and treatments within the same office and within the same visit. Not only does it save me time, it has made my recovery so much faster and more effective than I imagined.
