Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) June 28, 2013
Most people try their best to ignore severe joint pain in hopes that it will go away; however, arthritis pain tends to become more severe when left untreated. Much of this avoidance is due to a lack of information and understanding on what they can do for the pain. Fortunately, The Florida Knee and Orthopedic Centers (FKOC) offer free seminars to the public in hopes of providing useful information and treatment options from trusted experts that truly understand joint pain.
A quick web search of the phrase “knee pain” will deliver millions of results with more contradicting information and useless remedies that would make anybody run (if pain allows) for the hills. It’s no wonder that people suffering from arthritis pain of the hips and knees don’t know where to turn for helpful information and the best treatments available. This is one reason that the orthopedic doctors at FKOC decided it was time for someone to step up and deliver accurate, in-person education to the public from specialists who are at the top of the orthopedic industry.
Much of the population is unaware that there is no cure for arthritis and that pain from arthritis will not subdue, but get worse over time. Since useful information is so hard to come by, many people find themselves asking the question: “What is arthritis?” Most hip and knee pain is actually caused by osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis. Although there may not be a cure for arthritis, there are plenty of options (both surgical and non-surgical) available for people to overcome their severe joint pain.
These orthopedic experts also know how to tell when joint pain may not be caused by osteoarthritis, but is really the product of tendonitis, bursitis or poor muscle tone. A famous line from many of these seminars is, “If you have joint pain, don’t get upset, get fixed!” That is exactly what FKOC is hoping to achieve with these educational seminars; to teach the community how to beat joint pain and provide them the best treatment options available. “We do not want anybody to suffer from joint pain due to a lack of information,” stated a specialist at FKOC, “Everyone deserves a chance to live life without pain.”
The Florida Knee and Orthopedic Centers offer these seminars on arthritis pain and joint pain treatments all over Tampa Bay and Central Florida to help educate the populous where they have been practicing for thirty years. People that attend these orthopedic seminars will learn what can be done to address painful knee and hip problems including information on medication, nutrition, exercise, surgical procedures, the latest diagnostic methods and more. FKOC hosts four to six free health seminars each week; seminar dates and locations are listed on their website with an online registration form at http://www.fla-ortho.com/free-seminar.
