Polymyalgia Rheumatica (PMR) is a condition which can entail sudden onset of symptoms for unknown reasons. It is an inflammatory condition which affects the muscles in the shoulder and upper arm area. It can also affect the thigh and buttock area. There is no known cause for polymyalgia rheumatica, which can cause severe pain in sufferers. At Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic we work with sufferers of PMR to help alleviate the pain associated with the condition. What are the symptoms of PMR?
Some sufferers of PME may work with both a doctor and a chartered physiotherapist to manage symptoms, perhaps using a combination of medication such as corticosteroids and physiotherapy to address symptoms.
It is important to stress that the experts in Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic have experience of working with clients who suffer from PMR and we are aware of the pain and mobility issues associated with the condition. With this in mind we work with clients in a range of ways.
It is important to talk to your physiotherapist about your PMR, your pain levels and your ability to move around. Working closely with you, the staff at Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic will help you to manage your pain and also give you the tools to move and rest easier.
