May is Arthritis Awareness Month

More than 50 million Americans are living with arthritis. Nearly 2 million of them live in the state of Alabama. Most people believe that arthritis is just one disease, but the reality is that there are over 100 types of arthritis.

While many people with arthritis can live a relatively healthy and normal life, those with more advanced cases often struggle with everyday tasks. In addition, arthritis affects people of all ages, including around 300,000 children.

The Arthritis Foundation has published a FREE e-book, Coping & Comfort: Advice from the Arthritis Community, with tips, words of wisdom, and encouraging thoughts from others with arthritis and how they cope with and overcome their daily challenges.

We want our patients to know that you can feel safe when visiting a TOC clinic

Please read below so that you can be confident in our clinic procedure and additional safety measures.

In compliance with recent policy changes in counties that we serve, and to provide the safest possible environment for our patients, effective immediately, all patients and any guests who enter any TOC facilities will be required to wear a mask or face covering. In the event a patient does not have a mask, TOC will provide one. We appreciate your compliance with our mask policy. As always, TOC will continue to provide exceptional orthopaedic care to our current and future patients in the safest environment possible.

We look forward to taking care of you!
