Addressing Your Weight In 2019 Atlanta, GA
Woman Grasping Knee in Pain

The holidays are over. Did some of your holiday celebrations and festivities find you carrying more weight than usual? As a result of those extra pounds, you may have listed losing weight to the top of your 2019 New Year’s resolutions. If you gained weight and plan to exercise more in 2019, Ortho Sport & Spine would like to remind you of a few important things to remember.

Additional weight will put additional stress on your weight-bearing joints. Additionally, weight gain might contribute to inflammation, which can cause joint issues as well.

If you’re attempting to lose weight, keep a few things in mind. Start slow and steady. Don’t attempt to exercise too much and too hard in the beginning. Ease into your level of workout. If you had a recent injury, be sure to ask one of our doctors to ensure that you’re exercising safely and not causing additional injuries.

In addition to exercise, you’ll want to watch what you eat and drink. According to an article in Healthline, “water can be really helpful for weight loss.” They remind us that water is 100% calorie-free, helps you burn more calories and may even suppress your appetite if consumed before meals.

If you have a knee injury or ankle injury, contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. We can help diagnose and treat your particular situation. We are Double Board Certified, Fellowship-Trained Surgeons in Metro Atlanta and Savannah specializing in Orthopedic Sports medicine and spine surgeons.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
