Physical activity for joint health and wellness covered at Virtual Summit

“Physical activity for joint health and wellness”, a WFH Virtual Summit session moderated by Paul McLaughlin, covered how to achieve bone health without surgery, and how exercising one’s joints and muscles can reduce spontaneous bleeding in the long term for patients with a bleeding disorder. Pamela Narayan talked about rehabilitation versus wellness, while Chavez Edgecombe discussed musculoskeletal care from the patient’s perspective.

This session showed participants easy and practical methods for musculoskeletal care from the perspective of the orthopedist, physiotherapist and patient. It showed that by practicing good musculoskeletal care, patients can reduce their need for factor. This knowledge is useful for any patient—but it is particularly important for patients in developing countries, where access to factor can be limited.
