Centegra to host free wellness lectures

CRYSTAL LAKE – Centegra Health System will host two free wellness lectures in May.

Community members are welcome to hear physicians speak about carpal tunnel syndrome and shoulder injuries. Individuals feeling pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in their wrist, hand or fingers may be suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome. Dr. Kelly Holtkamp, an independent orthopedic surgeon on the medical staff at Centegra Health System, will discuss the signs, symptoms and treatment options available for carpal tunnel syndrome.

“Wave Goodbye to Carpal Tunnel” will be from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday at Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Center-Huntley, 10450 Haligus Road.

After the lecture, Holtkamp will perform free carpal tunnel screenings. Screenings take 10 minutes per person. This event is limited to 14 participants.

Registration is required.

Those unable to rotate their arm or those who lack the strength in their shoulder for daily activities can join Dr. Harpreet Basran, an independent orthopaedic surgeon on staff at Centegra Health System, as he discusses shoulder injuries and the treatments to restore mobility. “Over the Shoulder” will be from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. May 14 at Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Center-Crystal Lake, 200 Congress Parkway.
