Don't Ignore The Pain" campaign aims to bring awareness to orthopaedic health and care, in order to live a full and happy life. More so as the recent survey conducted by GKL indicated that more than 82% of respondents would only seek proper Orthopaedic treatment as a last resort to a persistent musculoskeletal problem (yes, people like me) and that has prompted GKL to launch this "Orthopaedic Awareness Campaign" which will run until December 2015. During this time, GKL will be conducting a series of road-shows around Klang Valley to educate members of the public about orthopaedic and health and proper care. On top of free orthopaedic consultations by physiotherapists from GKL, participants will also be able to explore treatment options available for their conditions. To further motivate attendees to follow through in taking steps towards orthopaedic treatments,they will also be offered the "Get Your First Consultation At Just RM10".

The public can also win the RM10 first consultation vouchers if they participate in the online pain stimulator game "What Hurts" by logging on to the microsite. Furthermore, participants also stand a chance to win a Garmin VivoFit worth RM400 when they play "What Hurts" and/or join the various campaigns contests of Facebook.
We are attempting to make the topic of orthopaedic care a more approachable discussion for Malaysians of all ages. We hope that this campaign helps shed some light on a topic that isn't always discussed at home. GKL has a fantastic pioneering team of orthopaedic experts and technology to help patients get the long term solutions that they need to live a full, healthy and happy life," said Dr Adzuan.
