    Arthritis Foundation Expo

    The 2014 Arthritis Expo was recently held in Columbus, Ohio and NovaCare Rehabilitation was proud to be a silver sponsor of the event. Our therapists were on hand to educate patients on the proper way to fall and get up from the floor, demonstrate various stretching techniques and answer questions regarding physical therapy, exercise programs and more. NovaCare offers an arthritis program focused on the treatment and prevention of arthritis.

    The annual Arthritis Expo provides a free opportunity for arthritis patients and the general community to access the latest information and attend important sessions on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of arthritis. Thank to everyone who came out and made our experience so great!
