Next Steps for Knee Replacement Recovery!!!

Most patients stay in the hospital for several days after the procedure, depending on the surgeon’s recommendations. What steps you take to recover at home will play a huge role in your success story. Be sure to follow your surgeon’s action plan for the following:

Wound care – like after most surgeries, you should avoid soaking your wound in water initially. Bandaging your wound can help prevent irritation.

Diet – after the surgery, it is important to restore muscle strength and aid your wound’s healing process. A balanced diet and iron supplement can assist in those processes, but you should avoid excessive vitamin K intake (vitamin K can cause complications with your medication).

Activity – early mobilization is important, but you may need help during the first few weeks. In addition to following a program set by your doctor, you should resume normal activities (just make sure not to overdo it!).

If you are wondering whether or not knee replacement surgery is an option for you, make an appointment with a member of our talented team of knee specialists. We have two locations in Maryland – Waldorf, and California.

Smoking Impact on Spine, Discs and Bones!!!

In the United States smoking claims more than 440,000 lives each year. In general, it reduces life expectancy by 7-10 years. Besides heart and lungs diseases, smoking seriously affects spine, discs, bones and joints every tissue in the human body is affected by smoking, but several effects are reversible. By avoiding or quitting smoking, you can reduce your risk for incurring many conditions. Quitting smoking can also help your body regain some of its normal healthy functioning. Because smoking slows lung growth and impairs lung function, there is less oxygen available for muscles used in sports. Smokers suffer from shortness of breath almost three times more often than nonsmokers. Smokers cannot run or walk as fast or as far as nonsmokers. To consult, please call

Knee Replacement Surgery – Pre – During and Post Surgery

Replacing a knee that has been worn down and causes intense pain is the major cause for knee replacement surgery. Knee Replacements normally help to relieve pain, improve knee functions and overall quality of life of an individual who is otherwise leading the life of a dependent. As with any surgery, recovery is never easy. Expect some pain and discomfort – along with frustration over your limited ability to move around. It may help to read about experiences from other Knee Replacement patients to get a good sense what to expect. When things do get challenging – and they will, focus on the rewards of once again being able to engage in your favorite activities. With the right preparation, you can increase the odds for a faster and smoother recovery. https://centerforadvancedorthopedics.wordpress.com/2015/12/17/knee-replacement-surgery-pre-during-and-post-surgery/ http://www.centerforadvancedorthopedics.com/

Warm Up Before Physical Activity

One crucial element of exercise, however, is warming up properly before beginning your workout. It can be damaging to your joints to jump right into a strenuous workout regimen without allowing your joints to fully prepare. Your joints need time to warm up before they can handle a full-blown workout. Start with slow movements that get your blood flowing, and put all of your joints through a full range of motion. At Center for Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, we believe and practice in quality with deep care and concern at heart. To consult, please call Waldorf, MD at 301-645-5410 or California, MD at 301-862-7550 and make an appointment. http://www.centerforadvancedorthopedics.com/contact-waldorf-hollywood-md-best-orthopedic-doctor-surgeons.aspx

What Does the Knee Replacement Procedure Involve?

One of our skilled knee specialists would replace the damaged portion of the joint with a prosthetic in a procedure that takes anywhere from one to two hours. Here is a quick overview of a general knee replacement: • The removal of the damaged cartilage and bone is performed first. This would occur at the ends of the femur and tibia. • Our surgeon would then replace the removed cartilage and bone with the implant or prosthetic. • Depending on the patient’s particular case, the patella (also known as the kneecap) would be cut and resurfaced with a plastic button. • Finally, a spacer would be inserted between the implanted components to give the patient a gliding surface. This not only alleviates pain, but restores alignment to the knee. To consult, please call Waldorf, MD at 301-645-5410 or California, MD at 301-862-7550 and make an appointment. Although surgery is viewed here as a last resort, if surgery is needed, you'll be glad to know that Dr. Yousaf use the most advanced, least invasive techniques available. http://www.centerforadvancedorthopedics.com/ https://www.facebook.com/CenterForAdvancedOrthopedicsMD/

Causes And Remedies For Chronic Neck Pain!!!

Chronic neck pain is a very com-mon condition in adult popula-tion. The pain may be mild, mod-erate or severe and recurring. Symptoms may resolve spontane-ously or become chronic and dis-abling, impacting the quality of life and activities of daily living. Injuries may or may not precede the onset symptoms. Pain and clinical findings are variable, fluctuant and may be non specific.
Diagnostic studies may or may not identify the exact source of pain in every patient. However, in vast majority of cases, careful his-tory, pain pattern, clinical exami-nation and diagnostic studies do identify the source of pain genera-tion and provide guidelines for relevant management.
Several medical disorders that are not directly located in the neck refer symptoms to the neck and the upper extremities. These in-clude, but are not limited to car-diac, pulmonary, shoulder, neuro-logical, hematological and con-nective tissue disorders. Disorders of the Temporomandibular joint can also refer pain to the cervical area.
