Information for Bone, Joint, Muscular Health and General Wellbeing
In orthopaedics, we generally see and treat musculoskeletal problems after physical damage has already occurred. While medical problems vary, our goals are usually to eliminate pain and help patients increase physical mobility, so they may lead healthier, active lives in the future.
Part of this process involves counseling on relatively simple lifestyle changes patients can make to help them recover more quickly, and also to help them prevent future problems from occurring. These changes may involve many things, but usually our conversations with patients boil down to improving nutrition, eliminating inflammation, and following a physical exercise regime designed to strengthen key muscles that support bones and joints.
We’ve created this page for patients who are interested in learning more about how they can improve or preserve not only their orthopaedic health, but also their general health as they age.
If you have questions about how your lifestyle choices may be impacting your orthopaedic health, or if you are in pain, please contact us at (707) 823-7602 to request an appointment.
