More than 35% of adults in the United States are obese. Statistics show that obesity often contributes to health problems and most recently, the impact of obesity on orthopedic health has come to the forefront.
Excess weight and obesity have been linked to health issues from high blood pressure to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Excess weight strains almost every organ in the body. But did you know that being overweight can cause damage to your joints? Putting too much weight or stress on your joints can cause problems such as musculoskeletal and chronic pain, increased risk of osteoarthritis, back problems, knee problems, slower surgical recovery and higher risk of surgical complications.
At Orthopaedic Associates of Central Maryland, we are committed to providing our patients with the tools they need to live a healthier lifestyle and optimize their quality of life.
We know that successful and long-lasting weight loss isn’t about any trendy diet plan. Here’s the problem… DIETS ALONE DON’T WORK. It’s a short-term solution for a long-term problem. Most diets don’t work because they’re imbalanced, unhealthy, and completely unsustainable for long-term health. Many weight loss programs promise quick results, but in reality 66% of people gain the weight back within one year; 98% of people are back up to their starting weight within two years.
That’s why we have partnered with Previnex. Previnex is the leader in dietary supplements, and with their 3-2-1 program we can help enhance the health and wellness of our patients. The results of the program will help reduce pressure on joints, reduce pain, stiffness and improve flexibility, and you’ll lose weight and keep it off.
