Gratefulness

During the month of November, it’s a good time to reflect upon all that we’re grateful for. At Ortho Sport & Spine, we have a long list of all that we’re thankful for.

Are Your Ready For Your Cooler Workouts

November ushers in a season marked by gratefulness and cooler temperatures. At Ortho Sport & Spine, we’re grateful for the cooler temperatures. Georgia summers can actually be somewhat prohibitive for being active outside. The high temperatures and humidity often make playing, exercising and journeying outside unfavorable.
