Hip & Knee Replacement: Are You Ready?
(THOUSAND OAKS, CA) – Hip pain and knee pain are common complaints of these joints that can be caused by a wide variety of problems. The pain can be mild, causing some soreness each time you move your joint or it can be severe, making it impossible to use your joint. While joint pain is rarely an emergency, it usually progresses from mild to severe, ultimately making surgery necessary.
Whether you have mild or severe hip or knee pain, having the knowledge of what surgery involves is beneficial. Join two joint rehabilitation experts, Britt Fuller, OTR/L and Paul Richert, MPT at a seminar as they discuss joint pain, when it’s time to see a physician, and what joint replacement entails.
