With most schools going back to full‐time, in‐person classes and sports activities, Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists wants to share things to consider when returning to sports and avoiding injury.
It’s June and summertime is finally here, which means the fun of outdoor activities, whether a relaxing hike, bike ride, or the challenge of competing in a local triathlon or marathon.
Many people live with painful injuries or medical conditions that limit mobility and impact their quality of life.
The practice of modern sports medicine began with the reintroduction of the Olympic Games in 1896.
Our goal at NWOS is to keep people as active and healthy as possible and sometimes that requires orthopedic care. Preventative care, like staying active as you get older, is by far more important. NWOS's Dr. Jonathan P. Keeve discusses how staying active can have multiple health benefits.
Sometimes the best help is to teach someone to help others
For nearly 20 years, surgeons from Northwest Orthopedic Specialists have traveled to developing countries to provide medical relief in humanitarian, disaster and conflict situations in addition to teaching in-country doctors. Each of these settings has a unique set of expectations, traditions, cultural requirements, medical obstacles, language barriers and politics.
