(http://ow.ly/HrJs30nfEYe)

Knee arthroscopy is a type of minimally-invasive orthopedic surgery used to address a wide variety of problems. Some of the issues a knee arthroscopy can correct are loose cartilage, torn meniscus, dislocated patella, and knee fractures. Knee arthroscopy is much quicker than traditional, open surgery, allowing Dr. Russonella to often diagnose and treat knee-related conditions on the same day. If knee pain is preventing you from living your best life, call 973-284-7805 or visit him online to request your consultation today.

Who Is at Risk of a Fracture?
(http://ow.ly/fL1c30nfEY8)

Though fractures can affect anyone at any time, they are much more common in athletes. This is especially true if you participate in contact sports that put pressure or undue stress on your bones. Another group of individuals susceptible to fractures is women who are over the age of 50. As women get older, they lose a significant amount of bone density and are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis. Smoking cigarettes, drinking excessively, and having diabetes can also contribute to your risk of a broken bone. If you want to take steps to prevent a fracture or other similar injury, contact us: (http://ow.ly/fL1c30nfEY8)

Can Exercising Lower My Risk of Joint Pain?
(http://ow.ly/kR0p30nfEY3)

Yes. Although it might seem counterintuitive, regular exercise is a great way to keep your joints healthy and well. The less you move, the stiffer your joints will become. Additionally, there's some research to suggest exercise can reduce joint swelling, and in turn, pain.
