Mopani hosts talk for Arthritis sufferers

Mopani Pharmacy celebrated another medical day recently; World Arthritis Day on 12 October.

World Arthritis Day is celebrated internationally every year on 12 October.  It is an opportunity for people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) to join together and raise awareness of the issues affecting them.

In recognition of the day Mopani hosted a free talk on Osteo Arthritis at our Crossing store. The talk was well received with nearly forty people attending. It was presented by Zikhona Spelman, training officer for the pharmaceutical company Sanofi-aventis. Spelman gave a general introduction to Osteo Arthritis and then discussed the benefits of Glucosamine Sulphate in the management of the disease as well as necessary lifestyle changes and available treatment options for sufferers. Each attendee also received some free ArthroChoice samples, a pain relieving supplement for joint stiffness and inflammation.
