Holyoke Medical Center To Present Program On Shoulders
Holyoke Medical Center will present "Don't Shrug Off Shoulder Pain" on Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 6 p.m. in the medical center's Auxiliary Conference Room. This program is part of the ongoing Dessert With The Docs series.
You may not give your shoulders much thought until a stiff, aching joint makes activities like carrying groceries or buckling a child into a car seat nearly impossible. The shoulder is capable of a wider and more varied range of motion than any other joint in your body, yet its flexibility is what makes it vulnerable to instability and injury. Shoulder problems from overuse can creep up over time or they can occur after a burst of activity like raking leaves in early Fall.
Join HMC Orthopedic Surgeon Kelly Instrum as he discusses common shoulder injuries and the treatment options available.
Pre-registration is not required but is suggested and can be done by calling the Holyoke Medical Center Health Promotion Line at (413) 534-2789.
