Move easier. Pain can range from annoying to excruciating. Why live in pain?
The worst thing about joint pain is the way it can interfere with your independence. A jolt of back pain on your backswing may cause you to put away the golf clubs. Tenderness in your knees may mean you sit on the sidelines while your children or grandchildren play.
If you have trouble moving or even resting comfortably, the simplest activities become difficult or impossible.
With the right treatment, you don’t have to live with pain. New procedures and robotic surgeries make it even easier to repair or replace your joints without long hospital stays or painful recovery.
