What’s Food Got to Do With It? Atlanta, GA
Healthy Food Atlanta GA

There is a big correlation between the foods you eat and your body’s health. Most people will think of food and gaining weight and leave it at that. Certainly, eating too much and eating the wrong types of food will pack on the pounds. Many studies have proven those facts. Studies have also shown that certain types of food can help or hinder the body’s ability to heal.

Healing Is About More Than Injuries

Usually when we think about healing, it is in connection with an accident or some type of event that causes injury to the body. Seldom do people consider that when you sleep, the body is going through a healing process. Our body’s go through a lot every day, whether or not we realize it.

Average daily activities take tons of energy and muscles can become fatigued and overworked. Then when you add on extra activities such as running, cycling, working out and participating in sports, your muscles expend even more energy and effort to keep you going.

At the end of the day, you may feel exhausted, but you probably would not consider yourself injured. Yet, there are hundreds of tiny microtears in your muscles. They get healed when you rest and your body sends good nutrition and nourishing blood to those areas. This is how muscle grows and gets stronger.

The Importance of Good Nutrition

Any job that is done well needs the right tools, and those tools need to be in good order to get the job done correctly. It is the same with the healing aspects of the body. Whether your body needs to heal the microtears of your gym workout or the torn ligament in your arm causing you pain, it must have the proper fuel in order to do the best healing.

Good nutrition is a foundational aspect of healthy living. Not only does it make you look and feel better, your body needs it to make necessary repairs. Without plenty of nutritious foods, you body can get weaker and more vulnerable to serious injury.

Without certain nutrients, the natural processes that cause the body to change as we age can become even more problematic. Consider that bone mass begins to decline in your 40s. Without a diet rich in calcium and Vitamin D to help the body absorb it, the decline of bone mass can lead to brittle bone or compression fractures when you get older.

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.
