Got Joint Pain?

Join us for a free informational lecture on Osteoarthritis and joint replacement at The Moorings of Arlington Heights. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people worldwide. Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint in your body, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, knees, hips and spine. Osteoarthritis gradually worsens over time and sometimes leads to joint replacement.

Find out how staying active and maintaining a healthy weight may slow progression of the disease and learn the facts about joint replacement.
