Aches and Pains in Myositis by Dr. Salman Bhai
May 6 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
Webinar: Aches and Pains in Myositis by Dr. Salman Bhai
Saturday, May 6th, on Zoom at 5 PM ET / 4 PM CT / 3 PM MT / 2 PM PT
Aches and pains take on a new meaning if you have myositis. It has been shown that measured exercise is necessary therapy in managing our disease. MSU’s study about pain and opioid medication treatment in myositis patients, published in Rheumatology last year, showed that pain is common in myositis. Further studies MSU has conducted show pain is one of the top 5 symptoms reported by myositis patients.
So how do we balance the need for exercise with the debilitating effects of pain?
Join Dr Salman Bhai, MSU Medical Advisor, practicing neurologist at UT Southwestern and faculty member at the Institute of Exercise and Environmental Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, as he helps us understand how patients, doctors, and physical therapists need to work together to individualize therapy treatment and answer your questions.
About Salman Bhai, M.D.
Dr. Salman Bhai is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurotherapeutics at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and a Faculty Member at the Institute of Exercise and Environmental Medicine (IEEM) at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. He earned his B.S. in mathematics at Duke University and his M.D. from Harvard Medical School, where he earned multiple research grants. He completed his internship, neurology residency, and neuromuscular fellowship at Harvard: internship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and residency and fellowship in a joint program between Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He is grateful for the unique neuromuscular mentorship, and training under several neuromuscular experts including Drs. Anthony Amato and Steven Greenberg (Brigham and Women’s Hospital) and Drs. William David, Amanda Guidon, and Reza Seyedsadjadi (Massachusetts General Hospital), amongst several others.
Dr. Bhai specializes in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of neuromuscular disorders. He specifically focuses on patients with inflammatory and metabolic myopathies as well as those with immune checkpoint inhibitor complications.
His research focuses on understanding how muscles communicate with other organ systems, particularly when muscle is inflamed, like in myositis. The goal of his research is to better understand, diagnose, and treat patients with myositis. This will be achieved through exercise and muscle physiology studies of myositis patients by analyzing biospecimens for molecular perturbations. He also will offer clinical trials for myositis patients.
Dr. Bhai is dedicated to helping patients and their families understand and navigate difficult conditions by providing world-class clinical care.
