A multimodal approach to osteoarthritis management is widely preached, combining pharmaceuticals, weight management, dietary supplementation, physical therapies and surgery. An often overlooked aspect of management is lifestyle adaptation to minimise further injury and potentially slow the progression of the disease and its impact on the whole body. Consult time is short and workplace pressures are high leaving little room for "fluffy" advice. This webinar removes the "fluff" and replaces it with science giving the attendee the confidence to tackle these game changing conversations within the clinic.
