Joint Academy - Little Rock and Hot Springs
From taking a hike with family and friends to playing with grandkids, we use our joints every day. This wear and tear often causes arthritis, which is one of the most prevalent chronic health problems and the nation's leading cause of disability among Americans. Arthritis limits everyday activities such as walking, dressing and bathing for millions of Americans. Arthritis pain can severely limit a persons ability to enjoy life.
CHI St. Vincent offers a comprehensive joint program to help individuals needing joint replacement surgery due to osteoarthritis and joint injuries.
Our joint replacement program, called Joint Academy, will get you back to living.
Joint Academy takes on a wellness approach for joint replacements. This program relies on traditional principles of patient focused care, interactive physical therapy and nursing interaction. Joint Academy produces a sense of autonomy and professional pride reflected in the care we provide our patients.
