Do NSAIDS increase the risk of total knee replacement?
Americans take 30 Billion doses of OTC pain meds a year. Taking NSAIDS has been shown to more than double the risk of total knee replacement. The overall impact of NSAIDS on our nation’s health has been well documented, yet few of us appreciate the magnitude of these health risks. Dr. Ryan Wood will be hosting a Doc Talk January 11th at 6:30 pm at Oregon Regenerative Medicine.
He will cover the many joint-specific side effects of common over the counter pain medications like Tylenol, Ibuprofen and Alleve. The lecture is designed to help inform the public about the risks of these medications, their effects on joint health and osteoarthritis, and their contribution to total joint replacement risk. He will also provide alternative treatment options. Join us for an informative and lively evening.
Refreshments will be served. Call 503 636 2734 to RSVP
