Arthritis Treatment for Active People

December 13, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

FREE

More than 70 percent of adults over age 55 have some form of arthritis, a degenerative condition characterized by the gradual wearing away of the joint cartilage. Vast improvements have been made in non-surgical and surgical treatments as more and more people seek solutions for pain relief  in order to maintain an active lifestyle. Sports medicine specialist and board-certified orthopedic surgeon Demetris Delos, MD of ONS will discuss arthritis, joint and bone pain with a focus on causes of pain, signs and symptoms of various forms of arthritis and non-surgical and surgical treatment options. Dr. Delos will be joined by physical therapist and director of ONS Physical Therapy/Greenwich, Tanya Kalyuzhny, DPT, who will discuss simple strengthening exercises that arthritis suffers can do at home and when traveling.
