A Seminar on ArthritisMany people suffer with insomnia, muscle and joint pain, inability to exercise because of pain and fatigue, depression or lack of motivation, memory problems, brain fog, nervous and emotional problems without any hope of relief. Serena Satcher, M.D., has an approach that can get at the root causes and is offering a free talk that will help participants to discover the underlying causes of joint and muscle pain, why it’s destroying your mobility and motivation, why taking medicines may not help the symptoms or just help temporarily and why a personalized approach is essential. The talk will be held at 10 a.m. on May 5, in Springfield.
The traditional approach is to check a few labs, and x-rays and diagnose fibromyalgia, or arthritis. Pain medicines, NSAID’S and antidepressants are prescribed. Sometimes surgery and physical therapy is prescribed, and helps temporarily, and the pain creeps back up or hits another joint. But this drug and surgical approach is not helping more than 80 percent of the people. It results in disability, hopelessness, a loss of motivation for a healthy lifestyle.
Satcher is board-certified in PMR, functional medicine and integrative medicine and specializes in autoimmune problems affecting the nervous system and musculoskeletal system. Bring a significant other or friend. They will finally see why it’s not all in your head.
