EMMC will offer its popular joint pain educational seminar in Belfast on Tuesday, September 9 at 5:30 pm at the University of Maine Hutchinson Center.

“Hip and knee pain can limit a person’s everyday activities,” says Angela Wheelden, RN, BSN, ONC, nurse coordinator, EMMC Joint Care. “Thankfully, there are treatment options, and many don’t involve surgery. We’ll focus on symptoms, diagnosis, and both nonsurgical and surgical treatment possibilities at this event.”

EMMC experts will share information about physical therapy, pain management, and preparing for treatment. Doctors, family nurse practitioners, therapists, and others will be available after the event to answer individual questions.

A complimentary dinner will be served at 5:30 pm to be followed by an educational presentation featuring EMMC’s joint pain professionals. Registration is required by visiting JointCenter.emmc.org or calling 973-8265.
