Outside of sports injuries, one of the most common issues I see is the natural wear and tear of joints in women – even young women.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) June 07, 2013
In order to promote awareness of the many types of orthopedic issues that affect all women - not just older women - world-renowned orthopedic surgeon Sonu Ahluwalia, MD will discuss healthy living choices to promote good joint health and prevent deterioration.
“Outside of sports injuries, one of the most common issues I see is the natural wear and tear of joints in women – even young women,” said Dr. Ahluwalia. “This type of issue can really put a strain on knees and hips.”
Dr. Ahluwalia explains that over time, joints naturally weaken and become strained. On The Today Show, he plans to address this issue, as well as share tips on positive lifestyle choices that women can make to help promote strong, healthy joints.
“Women have a wider pelvis and that’s why their knees tend to go inward, and this can put strain on many of the joints,” said Dr. Ahluwalia. “We’re doing so much stuff that our joints wear out, and we need to consider this in our daily lives.”
For women who have suffered from a shoulder, hip or other joint injury, or for those who experience continuous joint pain, Dr. Ahluwalia offers many different types of minimally invasive, outpatient procedures that can help restore normal mobility and flexibility. Many of these procedures take only a few hours, and can be truly life-changing.
Dr. Ahluwalia’s segment on The Today Show on NBC will take place Tuesday morning, June 11, 2013.
