About the Seminar:
Part 1: Lupus and the Musculoskeletal System
Presenter: Dr. Stacy Kennedy, Rowan Diagnostic Clinic
It is not uncommon for people with lupus to experience muscle aches and pain or have inflammation of certain muscle groups, which causes weakness and loss of strength. More than 90 percent of people with lupus will experience joint and/or muscle pain at some time during the course of their illness. Learn more about the different ways in which lupus can affect the musculoskeletal system and possible treatments.
Part 2: Lupus and Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Presenter: Dr. Sheetal S. Vora, Levine Children's Specialty Center
In addition to medications and other medical care from doctors, a large and growing number of people turn to other healing practices to try to improve their health. Learn more about these diverse therapies and the importance of discussing these practices with your doctor.
