Today we celebrate #grandparentsday which is why we wanted to bring attention to the most common #orthopedic conditions in the #elderly

#osteoarthritis is a #degenerative disease that affects the #hands #fingers #ankles #knees and #spine in 1/3 of older adults. Although there is no cure for osteoarthritis, a #orthopedicspecialist can help dealing with #pain and improve #rangeofmotion

Risk of #fractures increases due to weaker, more #brittlebones combined with unsteady balance and vision problems. #Strengthtrainingexercises can definitevely help avoid them.

#osteoporosis means decreased #bonedensity and low overall #bonemass. Today there are treatments available to slow down this process asociated to aging.

See a Specialist Now! If you or anyone you know is suffering from joint pain, book an appointment at @OrthoNOWAventura for a professional assessment and relief of your symptoms. Call now (305) 343-1365 or just walk in!

Monday, September 3rd. Today we celebrate #LaborDay a date to honor and recognize hard working people. It’s a day to show appreciation for those who value hard work as the way to earn an honest living.

That’s why today we share the 5 most common workplace injuries along with 5 tips on how to prevent them:

1.       Slips, trips and falls (slippery surfaces, falls from ladders, etc.).

2.       Muscle strains, especially in the back and neck (usually from lifting heavy items).

3.       Being hit by falling objects which fall from shelves.

4.       Repetitive strain injury which can result from any repetitive motion of the joints.

5.       Cuts and lacerations with sharp equipment, from power saws to paper trimmers.

How to prevent work related injuries from happening?

·         good training

·         clear signage

·         ergonomic equipment

·         proper protection

·         emergency protocols

If you or anyone you know has sustained a work-related injury, come straight to @OrthoNOW_Aventura the only #orthopedic #urgent#care specialized in #workerscomp #injuries and #physicaltherapy. No appointment or referral needed. Call now (305) 343-1365 or just walk in!

We recently celebrated #LazyDay which provides a great opportunity to remind yourself of the importance of #resting
.
😴
.
Not allowing our body enough time to fully #recover can lead to overuse #injuries such as #stressfractures #musclestrains and #joint pain
.
😴
.
Resting is just as important as #workingout because it’s an equal part of the total process required to build #strength #endurance, and #muscle
.
😴
.
Rest days allow your muscles, #nerves #bones, and #connectivetissue time to rebuild and grow back #stronger Sleep is also an important part of the process.
.
😴
.

Today is #mountainclimbing day!
.
🏞
.
You’ll face many #physical challenges while climbing and you need to be ready to deal with all the obstacles.
.
🏞
.
Mountain climbing may require using both your #arms and #legs on a steep portion of the climb.
.
🏞
.
So please take some basic #precautions before embarking in this adventure:
.
🏞
.
✅Wear hiking boots no sneakers that won’t support your #ankles, you may also bring walking poles.
.

✅Put on some comfy clothes, a hat, sunglasses, a rain-proof poncho and lots of sunscreen.
.

✅Pack plenty of water, snacks, high energy bars and a #firstaidkit
.

✅Charge your phone, make sure the gps works and don’t forget your camera.
.

✅Forecast the weather prior to the trip and study trail maps.
.

✅Stay on the trail, and if you get lost, re-trace your steps.
.

✅Let your #body adjust to the higher altitude little by little.
.

✅Be aware of Acute Mountain Sickness (common symptoms: #headache #nausea #fatigue, #dizziness ).
.

✅Turn around if the weather gets bad, or if you are #exhausted or #injured .
.

✅Let people know where you are going and who to call or where go in case of an #emergency.

.

A #summer cold it’s just a common #cold you catch during summertime.
.
😰 .
It doesn’t have to be cold outside to catch a cold, you know? .
😰 .
Do you know why your #muscles and #joints feel #sore and #achy when you have a cold or the #flu?
.
😰 .
The #whitebloodcells job is to repair and rebuild muscle fibers that are damaged through normal day-to-day use
.
😰 .
However, when you have the flu or #fever, they are busy fighting off the #infection, leaving your muscles and joints unattended, while also producing #cytokines which causes #inflammation and #pain (much like mild #arthritis or #rheumatism).
.
😰 .
If you or anyone you know is experiencing pain in muscles and joints due to a cold, the flu or even arthritis, come immediately to @orthonow_aventura the only #orthopedic #urgentcare. .

We recently celebrated #dogday and although those #furryfriends can be the most loving creatures, they also have the instinct to bite, under certain circumstances.
.
🐶
.
What to do if a dog bites you?
.
🐶
.
📌Place a clean towel over the injury to stop any bleeding.

📌Try to keep the injured area elevated.

📌Wash the bite carefully with soap and water.

📌Apply a sterile bandage to the wound.

📌Apply antibiotic ointment to the injury to prevent infection.

📌Go see a doctor and be prepared to answer a few questions, including:
.
🐶
.
✔Do you know the owner of the dog?

✔Is the dog up to date on all vaccinations?

✔Was the dog provoked, or not?

✔What is your overall health condition?
.
🐶
.
If you or anyone you know has been bitten by a dog, come to OrthoNOW Aventura! We are the specialist in #injuries, from #xrays to #woundcare, #stitches and #tetanusshot
.

If OrthoNOW Aventura is not on the list of places you want to visit this summer, limit #flipflops only to the beach, pool or shower.

Flip-flops increase the risk of #foot related problems and the probability of #injury from falling tripping and joint misalignment.

Flip-flops can cause #plantarfasciitis because they offer no support to the bottom of the foot, and they require unnatural #toecurling to keep them from falling off.

#Toestubbing is a common risk of flip-flops that can be very painful and even cause broken or sprained #toes or torn #toenails.

#Knee #hip and #ankle problems due to improper foot support, including #shin splints and knee, hip, and ankle pain, are also common.

Flip-flops are too thin to absorb #impact so your joints get stressed.

Foot #fractures and #anklesprains can occur when you engage in active motion (such as running).

The thin, flat soles of flip-flops don’t support the arch.

Flip-flops exacerbate poor #posture causing #backproblems

#Falls can happen if the flip-flop gets caught on a bump in the sidewalk or in an escalator.

Flip-flops smack the bottom of the foot as you walk, forcing you to curl your toes downward to keep them on, and to hold your ankles at a different angle, compromising balance and affecting #skeletalalignment

Foot pain? Come to OrthoNOW Aventura. No appointment or referral needed. Call now ☎️ (305) 343.1365 or just walk in
