About The Event
Join us for an interactive workshop on non-operative strategies for knee and hip osteoarthritis. Co-presented by physiotherapists Nadine Plotnikoff and Darcy Boulton, this workshop will cover what osteoarthritis is, its symptoms, and who may be vulnerable to it. Our presenters will help bust commonly-held myths about OA, share current knowledge supported by evidence, discuss the role (or not) of x-rays in diagnosis, provide exercise tips, and more.
