Hi Momto, thought I'd respond from the moaning site question. I started PT for my RA as my hips and knees are really stiffening up and I seem to have lost a lot of strength, my lower back is also sore. I'm doing a water based therapy and it's quite hard work. I haven't noticed improvement yet but I have 12 sessions booked so I will let you know. I
t was my PCP who recommended it but my rheumy was very supportive and has given me cortisone shots into my hips to help with the pain. I'm also getting carpel tunnel problems and the physio is giving me exercises for this too even though it wasn't on her brief. She seems very good, there are mainly people with injuries around me but 1 other woman with RA is also attending. I'm very hopeful it will help, golitho.
