Relieving Arthritis Knee Pain
Free Health Lecture

kneearthritisBy the time we’re 50, our knees have carried us more than 75,000 miles. Most of us don’t give our knees a second thought—until degenerative arthritis, or wear-and-tear arthritis, takes its painful toll and threatens to end our active lifestyle. Luckily, effective treatments are available.

Come hear a board-certified orthopedist describe both non-surgical and surgical innovations for relieving the pain of degenerative knee arthritis, including robotic-assisted MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing.

Where   Millennium Harvest House, 1345 28th St., Boulder
RSVP   Reservations Required: 303-441-0580 or bchlectures.org/kneepain

 

Preventing & Treating Painful Dance Injuries
Free Health Lecture

dancelectureDancers are athletes. All of the leaps, jumps and turns can take a painful toll on a young dancer’s body. Overuse injuries can occur in the foot, ankle, knee, back or hip. These injuries show up with greater frequency as dancers age, so it’s very important to learn what a young dancer can do to prevent future injuries.

Dancers, their instructors and parents are invited to hear a strategy-packed presentation by a board-certified sports medicine physician. You’ll learn why dance-related injuries happen, what can be done to prevent them and how to treat the most common problems.

Speaker   Sherrie Ballantine-Talmadge, DO, of Boulder Center for Sports Medicine
When   Tuesday, Aug. 26, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Where   Lafayette Public Library (downstairs meeting room)
775 W. Baseline Rd., Lafayette
RSVP   Reservations Required: 303-441-0580 •  bchlectures.org/danceinjuries
