Diet, Exercise, and Good Stress are Key to Strong Joints

Dr. Ryan Pokorney, ORA Orthopedics

Total Joint Surgeon, Dr. Ryan Pokorney, says joint health begins when we are young and continues throughout every stage of life. He says from teenagers to seniors,  the foundation for healthy joints and strong bones is a well-balanced diet, weight-bearing exercise, and physical activity that keeps joints well lubricated and working properly.

If you are experiencing painful joints, Dr. Pokorney says there a number of treatments that range from options such as regenerative medicine that allows patients to keep their original joints, through total joint replacement that allows patients to resume to the activities they enjoy most.
