Kenneth and Hollis Richter are fully embracing their retirement. The active couple split their time between Quakertown and Florida, and enjoy dancing, long walks and exercise classes. But their active lifestyle came at a price – joint pain.
Kenneth has had two hip replacements, and they both suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee. While Hollis controlled her knee pain with cortisone injections, after 10 years she knew it was time for a knee replacement.
“The pain was getting to be too much. I couldn’t even go for walks anymore. Plus, my back and hips were beginning to hurt because of the way I was limping,” Hollis says.
