Arthritis Care UK comes to Manchester

Posted on September 22nd, 2016
Not long ago, Harris & Ross Director,  Jeff Ross was invited by Arthritis Care UK to appear at their Manchester event at the start of September.

The day involved speakers from different specialist areas, providing advice on how to live with arthritis, covering matters on pain, relationships, how to deal with the condition at work and remaining active.

Amongst the speakers including Jeff, were experts within the field including Professor Philip Conaghan, Medical Advisor to Arthritis Care and also, Professor of Musculoskeletal Medicine at Leeds University. Therapists from Relate Greater Manchester South were also at the event, and spoke about how to manage relationships with arthritis.

Many came to the event and to hear Jeff speak on the current assessment, diagnostics, and treatment and rehabilitation options available for knee osteoarthritis patients. Guests were thoroughly informed on the options, which can found with either the NHS or privately.

Some of those who attended left very positive feedback:

‘Very interesting. Videos really showed what was being said. Thank you.’

‘A thoroughly helpful, interesting, challenging and informative day, which left me feeling significantly more positive about the future.’
