  • Lake Regional Health System will host two free medical forums in May focusing on back and joint pain.
    “Spine Health,” scheduled 2 p.m. Thursday, May 15, will focus on posture changes with age, causes of back pain and the effects of nutrition, general health and age on the spine.
    “Joint Pain,” scheduled 2 p.m. Thursday, May 29, will focus on the causes of joint pain, joint changes with age and how to protect joints as you age.
    “Back and joint pain are two very common symptoms of age,” said program host Jessica Beckmann, DPT, manager at Lake Regional Rehab Therapy in Eldon. “But, there are ways to cope, manage and even eliminate that pain, which leads to a better quality of life.”
    Both forums will take place in the third floor conference rooms of Lake Regional Hospital. The sessions are free, but preregistration is required at lakeregional.com/events or by calling 573-348-8222.
