Joint Preservation Program

The tools you need to strengthen and preserve your joints.

Most medical conditions can’t be fixed with just a pill. Joint care is the same -- keeping your joints strong and mobile takes careful attention from you and your doctor.

Our bone and joint specialists offer the Joint Preservation Program to help people with joint pain and osteoarthritis receive education about appropriate care for their condition. We take a team approach by working with specialists from other fields of medicine, including but not limited to orthopedic sports medicine doctors, primary care doctors, physical therapists and athletic trainers to work with you to find ways to relieve your pain.

The Joint Preservation Program includes:

  • Increasing use and knowledge of non-surgical treatment when possible
  • Teaching you how to take charge of your condition based on activity level and available treatment options
  • Education on surgical options and referrals to Joint Replacement specialists as needed
Due to COVID-19 pandemic, all Joint Preservation classes have been suspended until further notice. We apologize for this inconvenience. An online class option will be available soon.
  • If you have any questions or concerns, please call (313) 972-4196.
