St. Luke's Outpatient Rehabilitation Presented: Arthritis - No Bones About It!

Jamie Cehlar, Physical Therapist with St. Luke's Hospital Outpatient Rehabilitation Center, presented information designed to reduce the impact arthritis can have on people's lives and encourage a positive approach to the problem. The program gave attendees the knowledge and skills they need to take a more active part in their arthritis.

Jamie told attendees that using the body incorrectly during work and leisure activities can add to the damage that arthritis causes and actually speed up the deterioration, resulting in disability at an earlier age. Joint protection techniques can help slow the progress of this kind of damage. By using joint protection techniques, you can prevent additional damage to your joints.
