My Favorite Sports Recovery Tools
As patients return to their favorite activities, it is common to have muscle soreness and tightness. The best athletes know it is the RECOVERY that occurs between hard workouts that keeps them going.
The Mental Side of Recovery
Recovery from surgery can be overwhelming. Many of our patients have used meditation apps, as well as set up formal appointments with a mental health professional. Do not be afraid to seek help.Resources
Nutrition & Hydration Tips after Surgery
Targeted nutritional supplementation has been successfully used in multiple clinical settings. Enhanced outcomes have been seen for many years in burn, plastic, ulcer, and reconstructive surgery of head & neck cancer. The rationale for supplementing is based primarily on studies that show an increase in wound breaking strength and collagen formation in these challenging patient populations. Recent studies have also demonstrated improved post-op clinical outcomes in orthopedic trauma and total knee arthroplasty patients. Use code: LOGAN10 on checkout for a discount.
