Gratitude is Good for Your Health Atlanta, GA
Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians logo

As you sit down with your friends and family this week and reflect on what you’re grateful for, know that you’re doing more than simply connecting with your loved ones. You’re also giving your health a big boost.

Practicing gratitude helps to halt negative emotions such as envy, resentment, anger, and regret. But it can also improve your physical health. Studies have shown grateful people experience less severe pain from chronic conditions. The most grateful among us are also more likely to take better care of their physical health, in terms of exercise and regularly scheduled doctor’s visits.

Practicing gratitude can also help you sleep better, stress less, make you more mentally resilient, and improve your self-esteem — all key components to overcoming pain, injury, and illness.

If you’re looking for a simple way to practice gratitude even after the Thanksgiving holiday, try a gratitude journal. It doesn’t have to be anything complicated or time-consuming. At the end of each day, simply write a short list of the things you are grateful for from the previous 24 hours. It’s a quick, helpful way to remind yourself to bring gratitude even to the smallest things.

And from all of us here at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, Happy Thanksgiving!

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.

The Morrow location was a great experience for me. The staff was nothing less than perfect to me. I'm glad I chose this location.

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.
