The Good News about Shoulder, Knee and Hip Joints

placeholder image

Community Out-Reach Education

Joints can be damaged by arthritis and other diseases or injuries.  Arthritis, or simply years of use may cause the joint to wear away.  This can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling.  Your doctor may suggest a joint replacement to improve your quality of life.  When something goes wrong with the shoulder, hip and knee joints, what are the options for treatment?  Can joint injections help?  What can joint protection exercise/therapy do for you?

If you are seeking answers to questions like these you should attend March's C.O.R.E. (Community Out-Reach Education) Program at VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital’s Rehab & Exercise Therapy Center to learn more about shoulder, knee and hip joints.
