Motion is Medicine
One in two Americans will experience symptomatic knee Osteoarthritis (knee OA) in their lifetime. This means patients have to manage their pain and other barriers to motion for an average of ten years prior to getting a knee replacement. The debilitating effects of pain can lead to inactivity, weight gain and may eventually lead to health declines and health related issues. Access Health is joined by Dr. Tracy Ray, who will introduce us to a conservative approach in healing that addresses pain management, proper alignment, strength and stability to help us get moving or stay moving. With the help of DJO Global’s MotionCARE program, Access Health will discuss some solutions in bracing technology, get some education around pain management and learn how staying active can truly be Medicine in Motion. From prevention to recovery, DJO Global enables people to live their lives to the fullest by providing intelligent medical technologies and services designed to get and keep them moving.
