From staff reports
Achy knees or hips slowing you down? You’re not alone. It’s estimated that more than 30 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritis, the most common type of joint problem in older adults. Symptoms include pain, stiffness, and a loss of ability.
“Many people start noticing joint pain in their 40s, but it’s not necessarily enough to slow them down,” Beaufort Memorial Physical Therapist and Orthopaedic Care Coordinator Andrea Sadler said. “But by the time they reach their 50s and 60s, the pain is often bad enough to seek medical attention.”
If joint pain is keeping you from doing the things you enjoy, join Sadler for a free online joint pain class where she discusses common causes of joint pain, how early diagnosis can solve pain issues, effective non-surgical treatments for joint pain and the latest minimally invasive surgical procedures.
After watching the video, get more answers by signing up for an upcoming live Q&A video forum with Sadler and one of the hospital’s board-certified orthopaedic specialists. The next live Q&A session will be hosted through Zoom at 1 p.m. Monday, May 18 with Dr. Vandit Sardana.
The seminar and Q&A sessions are free, but registration is required for the Q&A.
