Joint Academy launches treatments for hand osteoarthritis and shoulder pain
January 31, 2022
Joint Academy’s purpose is to contribute to an improved quality of life for patients with chronic joint pain. Our previous treatments show very good results, and we want to help more patients get the right care without waiting time. We have, therefore, launched two new treatment programs in collaboration with medical experts and clinical researchers. Joint Academy develops digital treatments based on current research and clinical evidence.
Hand osteoarthritis is a common joint disease among the elderly. People with hand osteoarthritis can suffer from pain, stiffness and swelling of the fingers, which can make it difficult to perform daily activities. With the increased life expectancy of the population, more and more people are expected to get osteoarthritis.
Shoulder pain is a common problem that can lead to impaired function, sick leave and often cause long-term issues.
Patients with hand osteoarthritis and shoulder pain can now get digital treatment at Joint Academy. As part of the treatment, the patient receives simple physical exercises and education to learn more about their condition. Just like in our other treatments, the patient gets access to a personal physical therapist who follows the patient throughout the treatment.
Joint Academy already offers osteoarthritis treatment for hip and knee pain, as well as treatment for low back pain.
