Why do my joints hurt and what can I do about it?
This event has ended.
In this lecture Professor Philip Conaghan, University of Leeds, presents his lecture "Why do my joints hurt and what can I do about it?".
Most of us will have painful joints at some point in our lives, and it is increasingly common as we age. The joints don’t just hurt – they stop us working and doing the things we need and want to do. With chronic intermittent pain, over time it sneakily reduces our mobility. There are well over 100 different joint conditions, but these can be simply classified into 2 types of problems, with different treatment pathways. If you can’t undo a jar or get out of the cinema seat or car easily, you are on your way to a joint pain future. But most joint pain can be helped….attendees will learn how!
