On Saturday October 29, we had the privilege to hear from experts in the field of joint health at the Wood Forum 2022. Topics included gut health, diet and their affect on osteoarthritis, how to reduce pain from osteoarthritis, understanding when imaging may (or may not) be required and what to do after a knee injury.
