Arthritis Society Mississauga Public Forum on Managing Pain

The Arthritis Society held a Public Forum on Managing Pain in Mississauga on May 16, 2013. I was the emcee for the event. My wife said I was the funniest she has ever seen me when I have spoken.

A good number of people turned up for the event and I met some amazing people, as I always do at these events.

People who attended were able to speak directly with the presenters after the presentation to get their questions answered which turned out to be very popular.

The purpose of the lecture was to:

  • Learn practical ways to manage arthritis pain through exercise, the use of assistive devices and by protecting your joints
  • Explore the various types of arthritis and why pain is a symptom of the disease
  • Hear about prescription and over the counter pain medications used to manage pain and reduce symptoms

The Speakers for the event were:

Dr. Angela Montgomery - Rheumatologist

Nancy Simonot - Pharmacist at NKS Health

Jean McKellar - Physiotherapist
