Foot and Ankle Arthritis Seminar
For millions of people who suffer from arthritis, there’s no imagining. The pain is real. Arthritis is a condition that affects nearly 50 million people in the United States. And of those 50 million, over 90 percent have or will develop arthritis in the feet or ankles, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
Arthritis is an autoimmune disease, meaning the body is actually attacking its own systems. With arthritis, the joints in the body are attacked, causing pain and inflammation. When the joints of the feet are affected, it can have a tremendous impact on quality of life. Just getting from the couch to the kitchen seems like a monumental task for someone suffering from arthritis of the feet and ankles.
That’s why Dr. Dan Robinson, foot and ankle specialist here at Bingham Memorial Hospital, has developed a new FREE seminar aimed at those suffering from this condition. In his new seminar, Dr. Robinson will explore some of the options available for people suffering from pain associated with arthritis of the foot and ankle.
This seminar will be offered in three different locations around east Idaho throughout the fall. The locations and dates are:
Blackfoot – September 20
Pocatello – October 16
Idaho Falls – November 29
Dr. Robinson is committed to helping you live your life without pain and, when possible, without surgery. Minimally invasive options are available depending on your situation.
“Another thing we’ll discuss is some of the bracing and medication treatments available conservatively for these particular issues,” says Dr. Robinson.
Don’t let foot and ankle pain dictate how you live your life any more. Come to Dr. Robinson’s free seminar at 6 p.m. next Thursday in the Medical Office Building across from Bingham Memorial Hospital in Blackfoot. There is no obligation and you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions specific to you. Register online now by going to www.MyFreeSeminar.org or by calling 782-2937.
