Ask the doctors: How to stay fit and healthy without pain and injury
The Latte Lounge hosted a special live ‘Health Q&A’ with a team of orthopaedic specialists from The Wellington Hospital Elstree Waterfront Outpatient Centre.
After a year of lockdown and living a more sedentary lifestyle than usual are you considering how to get back to exercise without pain or injury?
Perhaps you’re approaching a milestone birthday and want to get stuck into a new fitness routine like boxing, tennis, running?
Or maybe you’re experiencing perimenopause or menopause symptoms and have concerns about how you protect your bones and joints as you age.
From head to toe, spine to hip, knees to feet and beyond we have not one but five top orthopaedic experts on hand to answer your questions.
Our doctors shared expert advice and tips to avoid the common complaints and injuries that are most associated with bones, joints and muscles.
We asked them the big question – how can you stay fit and healthy in midlife without pain and injury?
