Orthopedic excellence for every pain and stage of your athletic life

Prevention

Most people can reduce their risk of orthopedic problems and injuries by maintaining healthy weight, exercising regularly, reducing stress, wearing proper footwear, seeking medical treatment for pain at the onset of injury, learning proper lifting techniques and participating in special safety training specific to your job.

Workplace orthopedic issues

Shoulders, backs and knees take the biggest hit in occupations where repetitive motion or heavy lifting is involved. Local industries with more potential for on - the - job injury include construction, poultry processing, beverage manufacturing, landscaping, waste management and health care, such as hospitals and nursing homes.

Those who spend long hours on the computer are also at risk for injuries. Improving workstation ergonomics is important for industries where repetitive motion may be a contributing factor.
