Tired of the Aches and Pains?


Almost 50 million Americans suffer from some form of arthritis or a related disease, according to the Arthritis Foundation. If you’re one of those people, you know pain is just a part of life.

But joint pain doesn’t have to keep you from doing the activities you need and want to do in your day-to-day life.

Dr. Jody Bradshaw, M.D., will join Sparks Health System for a community Lunch and Learn event, Wednesday, March 5 in the Shuffield Education Center at Sparks Regional Medical Center.

He will discuss both surgical and non-surgical treatment options available to manage your knee, hip or shoulder pain from arthritis or sports-related injuries.

The hour-long session is free and lunch will be provided, but registration is required. To reserve your spot call, (479) 709-DOCS.

Dr. Bradshaw specializes in Orthopedic Surgery/Sports Medicine and has practiced in Fort Smith since August 2012.  While completing a sports medicine fellowship at UHZ Sports Medicine Institute in Miami, Florida, he worked with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Florida International University basketball team and has received advanced training in arthroscopy.
