Arthritis: Tips for Junky Shoulders, Splinting & Pain Control

Listen to Arthritis: Tips for Junky Shoulders, Splinting & Pain Control

Arthritis can be so debilitating to our clients because it is often not always the direct (or only!) reason we are seeing them.

Guest Hoang Tran OT/L, CHT talks pain, when to (or not to) splint, joint protection techniques and what do we do about those "junky" shoulders.
