Arthritis Q&A @ West Bend Library
Arthritis is very common but is not well understood. Actually, “arthritis” is not a single disease - it is an informal way of referring to joint pain or joint disease. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions. People of all ages, sexes and races can and do have arthritis, and it is the leading cause of disability in America. Arthritis may be settling in, but that does not mean you cannot keep up with your daily life or that you absolutely need surgery.
Come to the library on Wednesday, November 28th, 2018, at 5:30 p.m. in the Library Story Room and meet Doctor of Physical Therapy Elizabeth Kremer, of ATI Physical Therapy in West Bend, to get your questions answered, such as: What is arthritis? Why does my doctor say it comes on over time, but I didn’t feel like this last week? How do I deal with it and decrease the pain? If I have to have surgery, what does that look like and will I need rehabilitation? No registration is necessary and Dr. Kremer will provide hot coffee too.
