Living Well with Less Pain Event

9 September 2018

On 25th September, Arthritis Action in collaboration with Sussex MSK Partnership East will run a free workshop, with the aim to bring patients and clinical experts together. The event, taking place in Eastbourne, will see top healthcare experts giving advice on managing pain associated with lower back pain, hip and knee osteoarthritis.

The day of talks will feature presentations from consultant surgeons, pain specialists, clinical specialist physiotherapists, health and wellbeing experts, such as dietitian and Arthritis Action Services Development Manager Martin Lau. The event will also include talks by patient organisations and people with arthritis, providing a unique opportunity for discussion, across the landscape of osteoarthritis.

Shantel Irwin, Chief Executive of Arthritis Action, says:

“Around one in six people in Eastbourne, Seaford and Hailsham have back pain, hip or knee osteoarthritis[i]. We are delighted to partner with Sussex MSK Partnership East to deliver a pain management event for patients in Eastbourne. We hope to reach as many people in the area as possible to benefit from talking to leading healthcare experts about their condition, and learn new techniques to help reduce their symptoms.”
