Improving Orthopaedic Outcomes Through Lifestyle Medicine


Exercise and proper nutrition is the foundation to all Functional Medicine and Anti-Aging treatments, as well as a necessity for healing and preventing injuries in patients. It is also one of the most difficult areas to train and teach our patients. As we optimize body composition through increasing lean muscle mass while decreasing the fat mass, many of the hormone imbalances that are causing chronic disease can be eliminated. As specialists in our field, we need to have the tools to educate and train our patients on proper exercise and lifelong nutrition to maximize the healthy changes in our patients' lives. As physicians we have the ability to influence our patients to make positive changes in their fitness and nutrition that will impact their clinical outcomes. We just need to implement those into our current practice models. 


Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the need for physicians to prescribe medical fitness and the power we have to make change.
  • Maximizing orthopaedic outcomes through integrated fitness and nutritional services.
  • Review the current literature on how to use medical fitness to change the course of history.
  • Complement any medical practice model to increase cash based revenue and obtain new patients at the same time. 
  • Easy ways to implement medical fitness into your practice.
