The Colonnade at Sun City Grand will offer a free educational seminar, Overuse Injuries in the Active Senior, presented by Dr.  John Brown of The CORE Institute.

This special presentation will be from 10 to 11 a.m. Sept. 21 at the Colonnade's Recreation Village, 19116 Colonnade Way (previously known as North Grand Marketplace Way) in Surprise.

Active seniors will have the opportunity to learn about the cause of overuse injuries, along with the signs, symptoms and types of overuse injuries they may experience. Brown will also discuss the various treatment options, both surgical and non-surgical, for injuries caused by overuse.

Brown is a leader in shoulder and knee arthroscopic surgery as well as joint preservation techniques. He is also a specialist in shoulder replacement. Brown's passion for sports and community development has led him to care for a host of sports clubs including the men's and women's World Cup and Olympic soccer teams, spring training for the Kansas City Royals and the Texas Rangers, Pepperdine University athletics and locally for Willow Canyon and Valley Vista high schools.
