An educational opportunity to learn about joints and arthritis will help individuals in the community live their best lives.
The JRMC U: Care for Joint and Arthritis Pain is set for 11 a.m., Thursday, Dec. 1. The event will help people understand how to keep the musculoskeletal system as healthy as possible, said Orthopedic Nurse Practitioner Crystal Krapp.
“We hope to help people understand what we do in orthopedics, who we are and what they can do to manage their care at home,” Krapp said. “If home remedies don’t work, we can help people understand when it is time to see the doctor.”
JRMC Orthopedics specializes in diagnosing and treating bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves. The specialty includes procedures such as total joint replacements of the hip, knee and shoulder, knee arthroscopy and fracture repair.
Krapp is a member of the comprehensive team, which includes Orthopedic Surgeons Dr. Michael T. Dean and Dr. Timothy Volk and Physician Assistant Patrick Walter. Orthopedics also includes Podiatrists/Foot & Ankle Surgeons Drs. Kayla Emter and Rachael Renschler.
Jamestown Regional Medical Center (JRMC) is collaborating with Two Rivers Activity Center (TRAC) this year to offer monthly opportunities to learn (right from local providers!) about common health issues.
Urology kicked off the series in November. Ear, Nose & Throat will offer education in January.
Krapp said she hopes to answer questions regarding home and surgical options, recovery and what happens after surgery.
Questions people ask are: “What’s normal?” and “When do I see a doctor?” Individuals can ask questions, privately, and in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event is free and JRMC will provide nutritious snacks.
