Lunch & Learn Series

Join us for the next Lunch & Learn Event

Why live with chronic pain?

Friday, August 11, 2017

12 - 1 p.m.

Coffey County Hospital Allen Woods II Conference Room

This event is now full. Seating is at capacity.

Coffey Health System has good news for anyone suffering from pain: new treatments are available, and you don’t have to drive to a big city.

At a noon presentation on Friday, August 11, CHS Physical Therapist Joan Kuhlmann will discuss “dry needling.” While the procedure is new at CHS, patients with tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, and other conditions have seen dramatic results after just a few treatments. Kuhlmann and Physical Therapist Hallie Wilson are certified to treat certain muscle groups. They will complete additional certification later this year.

Lunch & Learn participants will also learn about Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, a non-surgical option to promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. Orthopedic Surgeon Shane Fejfar, M.D, now offers PRP at Coffey County Hospital.

CHS also offers a weekly clinic with Pain Specialist Mark Greenfield, M.D.

“We all experience pain at some point. In fact, pain is the most common reason our patients schedule clinic visits,” said CHS Director of Marketing Tracy Campbell. “This Lunch & Learn is a great opportunity to learn about the array of services offered right here in Burlington. We look forward to sharing information about these treatments, then your family physician can help determine the best option for you.”

The Lunch & Learn begins at noon on August 11 in Coffey County Hospital’s Allen Woods 2 Conference Room. Attendance and lunch are free. Seating is limited, so register today by calling Virginia DuBuke at (620) 364-2121 Ext. 4174.
