Let's Talk About Activity Preservation

What do we need to do to keep you participating in the activities you love?
— Dr. Sterett

Today I'd like to introduce a concept that may be new to many of you--activity preservation. To keep it brief, activity preservation is basically all about keeping you doing the activities that you love to do. 

In the past, much of the focus of orthopedic surgery has been to treat the injury based on the level of comfort a person would like to achieve.

However, we're starting to realize that increasingly people don't merely want to be pain-free, but they want to be back at doing the things they love better than ever. This fact can dramatically inform our approach when it's time to line up treatment. 

I explain more in the video below. Have a look! And if you have any questions, feel free fill out the form below to shoot me an email.

"What do we need to do to keep you doing the activities you love?" That's the question Dr. Sterett answers, introducing the concept of Activity Preservation when it comes to your chosen treatment for a sports medicine injury.
