Help for arthritis sufferers to air May 12 on WDSC

Don’t miss a special edition of Functional Fitness with Suzanne Andrews on WDSC TV, offering viewers the latest conventional and alternative therapies and an inside look from the book, How You Can Erase Arthritis by nationally recognized board-certified rheumatologist, Dr.Nathan Wei,  and Dr. Mache Seibel, one of America's top health communicators.  

The program airs Thursday, May 12, beginning at 10 a.m. on WDSC TV channel 15 in Flagler, Volusia, Seminole, Orange and parts of Brevard County.

“If you or someone you know or love suffers from aching, painful joints, or if you find it more difficult to get out of bed in the morning and make it through your day. If you want to dance, run, play golf or just enjoy life like you used to, then this is the most important show you will ever watch,” said Andrews, the program's founder and a licensed occupational therapy practitioner.

The program will cover topics such as finding the right doctor, medication side effects vs. their risks, therapeutic exercises that alleviate pain and what treatments are available.
