Glucosamine for Recovery Atlanta, GA

No matter how careful they are in choosing the correct shoes, doing the correct stretches before and after a workout, and taking necessary precautions – almost all athletes will experience some type of injury. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we specialize in helping athletes recover from sports related injuries with the most minimally invasive treatments possible. While there are certain things that need to be done in the physician’s office to help recover, there are also specific things that patients can do at home to complete their rehabilitation program.

All athletes need to make sure that they take the time to allow for healing. While pain may keep people from exercising, once they start “feeling” better they are often tempted to jump back in to their activities. However, exercising before the body has properly healed can set back recovery. One specific thing that athletes can do while their bodies are healing is to take glucosamine for optimal recovery. Glucosamine can help to reduce joint pain, and it is well absorbed by the molecules that make up cartilage surrounding the bones. Taking this supplement can not only help to promote healing, but it can also slow the natural deterioration of joint cartilage helping athletes remain free from joint pain.

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are here to help all athletes recover from injuries whether they are professional athletes or the weekend warrior. For more information about the correct dosage of glucosamine for recovery or prevention that you should take, contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today to schedule a consultation. We are proud to work with athletes to help them stay active and live their best lives!

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.
