Imagine the regular stressors of any day. Now add any combination of fatigue, joint pain and stiffness, skin rashes, chest pain, mouth ulcers, fever and kidney failure. Overwhelming, right? The unsound heroes that battle Lupus have days that look like that, many of which, amidst their challenges, still achieve their goals. Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks tissues and causes inflammation.
Did you know physiotherapy could be beneficial? It can help in pain management, exercises to prevent the decline in muscle strength and endurance, exercises to help maintain a healthy airway and cardiac health, activity modifications to protect the joints, reducing muscle stiffness and maintaining range of motion.
