Sparks Shares Joint Pain Treatment Options

(June 26, 2012) - Sparks Health System is offering some possible solutions for joint pain sufferers.

Today Edward Rhomberg, M.D., will present a free public seminar on both surgical and non-surgical treatment options for people living with joint pain. The presentation will focus on the different types of arthritis that lead to pain, specifically in the knee and hip.

Several exercises and pain relievers are available that patients can use to try to avoid surgery and reclaim their active lifestyles. These treatment techniques will be a part of the presentation. But if non-surgical treatments aren’t alleviating the pain, Dr. Rhomberg will also discuss the logistics of knee and hip surgery.

Learn more about conquering joint pain at our “Lunch & Learn: A Joint Effort” seminar from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, June 26, in the Shuffield Education Center on the first floor of Sparks Regional Medical Center.
