Orthopedic Doctors Q & A

How can I keep my joints healthy?

Your body has more than 300 different joints, which work to keep you mobile. Each joint is a network of bones, muscles, connective tissues, nerves, and other soft tissues that work together to enable proper function. If an issue arises with any of these components, normal function is threatened.

Maintaining a healthy weight, getting plenty of exercise, and choosing a balanced, healthy diet are great ways to sustain healthy joints and reduce your risk of joint injury. You should also take steps to protect yourself from injury when at home, on the job, or while playing sports. Even something as simple as embracing flexibility training and proper technique during workouts can reduce your risk of injury.  

When should I see a specialist for joint pain?

Everyone experiences occasional joint pain. But when pain is severe or fails to improve after a period of self-care, you should consider seeing a specialist for a thorough diagnostic workup.

You should also consider scheduling an appointment with New York Bone & Joint Specialists if previous treatment failed to yield the desired results. The physicians at this practice are leaders in their field and stay abreast of the latest developments in joint health treatment and technology.

You should see a specialist any time that joint pain interferes with your normal daily routines.
