Healthy Aging Month: Joint & bone recovery and some myth-busting!
AMHERST, N.Y. – September is Healthy Aging Month, and before the month is over, we want to share a few tips that may be helpful to you or your children as you get older. While genetics are sometimes out of our control, we CAN control the choices we make that stand to improve or sustain our quality of life with age.
To put it simply, the National Institute of Aging recommends all the things you’d expect might promote health aging: Exercise, smart food choices, prioritizing sleep, taking care of your mental health, and seeing your doctor regularly.
But when it comes to orthopaedics specifically, the experts of Excelsior Orthopaedics can get more detailed on how injuries, overuse, joint replacement, and more can affect our bones and joints.
Recently, we had the opportunity to provide an expert article for the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, and in this article, we address the long-term effects of injuries and do some myth-busting.
