Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) September 4, 2008
Dr. Bal Rajagopalan, "Dr. Raj" (http://www.drhipandknee.com), a leading orthopedic surgeon and wellness advocate, proudly announces his campaign to protect athletes and fitness enthusiasts from needless injuries. This effort, which coincides with the beginning of football season and other popular fall-related team sports, is a reminder about the avoidable risks that may result in medical treatment or surgery.
"Football seasons often means a marked increase in injuries - broken limbs and months of physical therapy - for both amateur and professional athletes. Preventing these occurrences, or at least educating people about the dangers of intense contact sports in general, is a public health priority. High school and college colleges also have a duty to make safety a team goal," states Dr. Raj. "As an orthopedic surgeon, I want to help these patients while educating the broader public about this potential crisis."
Dr. Raj and the Wellness Philosophy
Dr. Raj's practice additionally involves an embrace of new technology and respect for Eastern forms of wellness treatment. "I regularly employ the best elements of Western medicine - and the quick recovery times of my patients are a testament to that fact - but have tremendous respect for options like acupuncture and sound nutrition. Indeed, the latter two are at the heart of my approach to patient care," says Dr. Raj.
