Talk with the Doc: Healing the Weekend Warrior

Apr 16, 2015 01:30PM ● By Erica Shames

Every day people strain and injure their bodies through activities beyond exercise. Sports medicine extends to more than just athletes and more than injuries that happen on the playing field. The experts at SUN Orthopaedics of Evangelical are ready to talk about the weekend warrior and how to tend to injuries that can happen at home.

A Talk with the Doc discussion focused on the weekend warrior will be held at Evangelical Community Hospital on Thursday, May 21, in the Wood-Mode Conference Rooms located on the lower level of the Hospital. The talk will begin at 6:30 pm and light refreshments will be offered.

The discussion will center around prevention and treatment of common injuries of the shoulder, knee, or elbow; exercising with an arthritic knee; and minimally invasive procedures for tendonitis and bursitis.

The panel of experts includes: Charles Cole Jr., MD, John Furia, MD, Matthew Reish, MD – all orthopaedic surgeons with SUN Orthopaedics of Evangelical, and Gary Kremser, Physical Therapist from Physical Therapy of Evangelical.

The panel discussion is an opportunity to have direct contact with the experts to learn and ask questions.

The event is open to the public. Registration is required and can be completed by calling 570-768-3200 or online at
