Knee & Hip Pain: Free Lecture
New Britain [April 02 2007] -
“Answers to your questions about Knee and Hip Pain,” will be held on Thursday, April 12, at 2 p.m. at the Bradley Memorial campus of the Hospital of Central Connecticut.
This is a free seminar to learn about the various causes of knee and hip pain, the treatments available, and how to restore lost mobility and reclaim a healthy, active lifestyle.
Dianne Vye, RN, joint replacement program manager, will discuss the origins of knee and hip pain and how it can be treated. Vye is manager of the Center for Joint Care, one of the Hospital’s Centers of Excellence, which offers a comprehensive program of seminars, patient education, and post-operative physical therapy.
Vye will discuss some common causes of joint pain, which include tendonitis, bursitis, torn cartilage, and arthritis. Arthritis is a progressive disease characterized by inflammation of the joints that afflicts 43 million Americans, or about 33 percent of the population age 60 and over. Joint pain leads to all kinds of self-imposed limitations and lifestyle changes. Because exercise is so vital to continued good health, it is important that arthritis or other limiting conditions be properly diagnosed and treated.
This lecture will be held in the Bradley Memorial campus’ conferences room A at 2 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.
