Lots of people run facing traffic, so if you always run in the road in the same direction, you’re always landing with one foot higher than the other foot, which predisposes you to tendonitis. It’s important to change the surface. So don’t always run on the road. Run on the sidewalk, track, or trail. Find paths as well with different curves or hills to keep it fresh.

Geese chillin' at the Ortho Center
Canadian geese are known to fly in a "V" shaped as they migrate across the country. The lead goose in the "V" cuts through the air making it easier for the rest of the geese behind him. As that lead goose becomes tired, he will drop off and join one of the sides and a new lead goose will take over. This is done several times as they are flying long distances. So if you look up in the sky and see a "V" shape of geese and one side is longer than the other, do you know what that means?
A:(There are more geese on that side)
Whether you are a goose flying cross country or a patient with joint problems, Orthopaedic Center is here for you. Call today for an appointment at 618-242-3778.
