FREE patient class: Coping with Arthritis

PCI is hosting a FREE patient education class Wednesday, May 18. Coping with Arthritis: Exercises and Activities that Can Help will be held from 5-6 p.m., in PCI's 3rd floor Community Room.

The class will be presented by Jason Willer and David Rubsam, both licensed physical therapists at Physicians' Clinic of Iowa.

"Arthritic joints, inflammation and just day-to-day muscle strains and aches can make exercising a chore. But, staying active is a huge part of staying healthy as you age," said Willer, "We want to speak to patients about helpful exercises as well as activity modifications that can help arthritis sufferers regain quality of life."

While those suffering with arthritis may not want to move painful joints, the undeniable truth is that increased movement actually helps relieve the pain.

“By strengthening your muscles and staying flexible with exercise, you take pressure off the painful joint,” Willer said. “And, exercise can help you lose weight, taking even more stress off your joints.”

“The good news is that people with arthritis do have options for activity and exercise," Rubsam concluded. "These activities can maintain joint health and overall well-being.”

Jason Willer is a licensed physical therapist at Physicians' Clinic of Iowa. He holds a Masters of Physical Therapy from The University of Iowa and is a certified Astym System Provider, Performance Dynamics. David Rubsam, a licensed physical therapist at Physicians' Clinic of Iowa, holds a Masters of Physical Therapy from the University of Iowa, is a certified Astym System Provider and is a Certified Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist.

Specialty Care Now is Open

Cedar Rapids' first walk-in specialty care clinic, Specialty Care Now, is now open at Physicians' Clinic of Iowa.
Specialty Care Now provides care for immediate but non-life threatening medical conditions. There is no other walk-in clinic for specialty care in Cedar Rapids.
 
“Specialty Care Now was created to address the growing need to improve access to specialty care,” said PCI CEO Michael Sundall. “People with immediate needs shouldn’t have to wait weeks for an appointment with a specialist, nor should they be forced to go to the emergency room and pay higher costs. With the Specialty Care Now clinic, patients can walk in and be taken care of quickly. Patients also can seek immediate second opinions for a range of diagnoses.”
 
Medical conditions treated at Specialty Care Now include:
  • Severe earaches or infections, hearing loss, severe sinus problems
  • Athletic injuries or on-the-job injuries
  • Neck and back issues
  • Sprains, strains or broken bones
  • Severe headaches and/or migraines, vertigo
  • Urinary tract infections, kidney stones
  • Second opinions and specialty triage
Specialty Care Now is located on the second floor of the PCI Medical Pavilion, 202 10th St SE, Cedar Rapids. Appointments are not necessary. For more information, see pcofiowa.com/SpecialtyCareNow.
