Are You Keen To Find Out More About Osteoarthritis? 

Do join us for a Webinar Talk on:

"Arthritis of the Knee"

Osteoarthritis of the knee is the most common type of joint disease and many older adults above 60 years old will experience some episodes of knee pain in their lifetime. According to a research in 2004, a Singapore Burden of Disease Study, Osteoarthritis was the 5th highest cause of disability in the older age group. 

There is a common confusion between osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. As such, the webinar will cover the differential features of these 2 types of arthritis. We will also discuss their common symptoms and how these are managed differently. At the end of the session, we will try some relevant exercises targeted to improve early stage of osteoarthritis. 

Webinar Contents Include:
  • What is Osteoarthritis (OA)? 
  • Signs and Symptoms of OA
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
  • Treatment Options
  • Physical Therapy 
  • Movement Session
