Dr. Karena Wu joins Dan Mannarino and Hazel Sanchez on PIX11 this morning to discuss her journey with arthritis and her subsequent surgery. Dr. Wu is a board certified orthopedic physical therapist and is now a patient! She discusses the importance of physical therapy after surgery and tips on what to do to help avoid arthritis and how to manage arthritis. The anchors and Dr. Wu also discuss how diet can affect arthritis. Dr. Wu is the Corporate Chair for the NYC Walk to Cure Arthritis this Saturday, May 20th down in Foley Square. It is the 75th Anniversary of the Arthritis Foundation this year and May is Arthritis Awareness Month. The AF has been supporting millions with arthritis and has spent half a billion dollars on clinical research. Arthritis is the #1 cause of disability and 92% of those with arthritis are limited by daily pain!
We have big hospital sponsors this year for the 75th Anniversary: Hospital for Special Surgery, New York University, Northwell Health and Lenox Hill Orthopedics.
