What are DMARDs?

A:

DMARDs are a class of drugs that are used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, and the most common drug used is called methotrexate. The acronym stands for Disease-Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drugs. DMARDs serve to slow down the progression of your rheumatoid arthritis, and it's important to start treatment as soon as you're diagnosed. By treating your symptoms with these drugs, you can experience improvements in function and life expectancy.

Q:

When can I start physiotherapy after my back surgery?

A:

Ultimately, your surgeon will advise you when it is appropriate to start physiotherapy following your back surgery. Around six weeks after your surgery, physiotherapy is very important because you can start learning proper lifting techniques and how to protect your back. Before this period, you may be given gentle stretching exercises to help with your recovery.
