Pain seems to go hand in hand with aging. Joints wear out. Arthritis sets in. Injuries or illness can cause ongoing, chronic pain.
Pain doesn’t have to keep you down or away from the activities that you love. There are treatment options, and physical therapy might be a good place to start.
Carl de Luca of Roberts & Associates will be the guest speaker at the next Let’s Learn Together free public speaker series. Join Hilltop Grand Village at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 17. The Hilltop records most Let’s Learn Together segments for Wisconsin Rapids Community Media.
