Ortho Tip of the Month

Practice precaution

Taking precautionary measures is crucial when it comes to your joint and bone health. If you notice any changes in your orthopedic wellbeing, make sure to ice, wrap and elevate the area before it is too late. If the pain or weakness continues, it is important to seek medical attention.

David Nelles, M.D. – Orthopedic Spine Surgeon

“Every boy grows up wanting to play with hammers and saws and screwdrivers, and some of us never grow out of it. For me, there’s a great sense of accomplishment in taking a damaged or broken thing and fixing or replacing it.” – Dr. Nelles
