JointHealth™ express   December 13, 2012

Last JointHealth™ web workshop of 2012 is online today

The final video in ACE’s series of five joint exams is now available to be viewed from the JointHealth™ website. So far, we have brought you:
  • Quick Joint Exam
  • Knee Exam
  • Shoulder Exam
  • Elbow Exam
The instructional videos, each roughly 2 or 3 minutes long, demonstrate simple joint exams designed to help physicians diagnose arthritis. One in 10 visits to a primary care physician’s office is for musculoskeletal pain, so being able to do these quick and easy joint exams is very important. Encourage your doctor to visit or download the free app to view the videos.
