The 2 Things You Must Do...

Let’s talk about your knee pain for a bit: this is one of the most common problems that we see in our office In fact, in our most recent blog  (What You Need To Know Before You Get That New Knee) we pointed out how frequent knee pain affects over 25% of adults, and many of these people wind up having surgery to try and fix the problem.

What You Need To Know Before...

One of the most common orthopedic surgeries these days is a Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA), otherwise known as a “knee replacement.” With the prevalence of knee pain (25% of adults) in our country, along with the associated arthritis stemming from injuries or wear and tear as we age, it seems that this is a trend that will continue for the time being.  Over 600,000 total knee replacement surgeries are performed annually in the United States.  In fact, if you’re reading this, chances are you’re either considering a knee replacement or you have had one already.  Maybe you don’t know yet...

Treating George Costanza

Today we highlight a client who has quite a story.  When I first heard it I thought the staff was pulling my leg. It sounds like an episode of Seinfeld where George Costanza was carrying a huge wallet stuffed with all sorts of useless coupons, receipts, loyalty cards and notes.  He was sitting in the cafe complaining about his back and hip pain to Jerry when Jerry noted that he was sitting “on a slant” due to his obese wallet. Instead of taking the wallet out of his back pocket George just grabbed a wad of napkins and shoved them...

Do You Need To Change?

The thought of change is overwhelming to some, myself included but in this post I will show you how you can get over the fear of change and start to move the needle in a positive direction.  Ask my friends and family and they will tell you I am pretty set in my ways. I am the type of person that finds something I like and I will stick to it. It could be a certain type of food, clothing, shoes or my morning habits you name it and I am set.  Now this doesn’t mean I won’t change. I...

As a disabled...

Snacking To Win

There is an episode of Seinfeld where Elaine developed the habit of having a sugary snack (a slice of cake or a cookie) around 3PM, as there was always someone in the office celebrating a birthday or anniversary.  At one point she denounced the excessive celebrations and got cut off from the afternoon sugar rush. She quickly realized how much she actually depended on the afternoon jolt.  Does this sound familiar? Do you seem to hit the wall mid-afternoon?  If this sounds like you, what do you do?  Are you like Elaine? Looking for a sugary substance to snack on...

What Is That Strange Sensation?

It was a long hot day on the bike and my legs were screaming. We were 60 miles into the ride and had another 10 to go. This was not a race but a very aggressive group ride.  Everyone in our group was worn down and we could feel the pace starting to slow. Then we started a downhill section and I went to the front of the group to drive the pace.  After a minute of a hard effort I looked back and found only one rider with me. Instead of slowing down we kept the pace high...sorta an...
