The fish will soon return to Bristol Bay, and the fishers to the water!

Fishing brings with it hours of repetitive motion that can strain joints and tendons. Today on Feel Better Friday, Dr. Cathy Hyndman gives us tips for staying spry on the boat and by looking out for your knees and carpal tunnels in a variety of circumstances. We also have advice on joint pain for all us non-fishermen out there.

About the show:

Feel Better Friday is a weekly show that airs on KDLG 670AM after the noon newscast on Friday. In each episode, Dr. Cathy Hyndman talks about a different topic related to health and wellness, driven by listener questions.
