Baylor Scott and White Medical Center – Plano Hosts Joint Pain Seminar
When I was younger, I enjoyed learning martial arts, dance and soccer. Now that I’m grown, I’m suffering the side effects from my strenuous younger days in the form of chronic knee and back pain! If you are one of the few who has never experienced knee pain when jogging, back pain after a long day on your feet, or any other type of long term joint pain, then you are lucky. For the rest of us, there are options for pain management – in a legal and healthy way!
Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Plano is hosting a Joint Pain Seminar on April 19 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. This free event is designed to help chronic joint pain suffered find relief from pain and transition from a still life to a real life. During the seminar, you can find out what may be causing your joint pain for the hip and knee, as well as what treatment options are available. A complimentary light dinner and parking are also provided. And if you can’t make it this time, more Joint Pain Seminars will be held on June 21 and November 15.
Charles Toulson, MD, orthopedic surgeon on the Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Plano medical staff, will be leading the forum in the Education Center, Room 1 at 4700 Alliance Blvd. in Plano.
Toulson brings years of experience in the area of joint replacement and has authored many scientific articles related to orthopedic surgery and hematology. He is the recipient of many honors, including the Knee Society Grant Award and the Distinguished Medical Scholar Award of the University of North Carolina.
“We believe that Dr. Toulson’s fervent commitment to quality and patient-centered focus will further enhance our ability to offer advanced treatment options to our orthopedic patients,” said Jerri Garison, president of Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Plano in a recent press release.
According to the National Institute of Health, pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined, with approximately one in four Americans having suffered from pain that lasts longer than 24 hours. It is the leading cause of disability in the U.S.
