Orthopedic health and athletic performance

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Injuries occur because our bodies cannot adequately absorb force. People can often avoid injury/surgery if they develop a good foundation to build upon. Injuries that need surgery can be postponed by development of this foundation. Long muscles absorb force better than short ones. Training our nerves to fire at the right time prevents injury and improves performance and controls our movements. Better motor control means better posture, more efficiency in exercise/sport, less injury.

Orthopedic Associates of Hawaii announces the opening of our Central Oahu satellite clinic in Waipio near Costco in early July.  For more information ,call their main office at (808) 536-2261 for more details.
