Backed by Science: Complementary Therapies for Arthritis

Conventional medical therapies such as disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs are designed to modify the course of many rheumatic diseases that affect kids and teens. But are there nondrug ways to manage symptoms such as painful and tender joints, morning stiffness, fatigue, stress or anxiety? Can some therapies possibly lead to reduced need for over-the-counter pain medications?  Learn about common therapies – exercise, massage, yoga, acupuncture, supplements.

  • Discover which ones have the strongest backing by science and how the research is done
  • Understand why other therapies you may hear about on the internet don’t meet the “backed by science” standard
  • Get tips from a rheumatologist on talking about CAM therapies with your child’s doctor

Date:  Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Time: 7:30 p.m.
