All-Star Orthopaedics Tackle "Boomeritis"

DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- All-Star Orthopaedics, a group of Dallas orthopaedic surgeons, has noticed a rise in a very specific, niche patient group. CEOs from North Texas have been seeking out orthopaedic consultation due to the high-intensity athletics these high-intensity CEOs engage in during their time away from the office. These individuals who bring their A-game to the office are also bringing their A-game to their weekend sports. Joint pain, swelling, and an increase in overall exercise fatigue are all part of the natural aging process. For these CEOs who exercise as hard as they work, these conditions can be amplified -- and the term "Boomeritis" has been coined for this hard-working segment of the population.
Dr. Mark Greenberg, who specializes in sports medicine and knee surgery among other procedures, says that though people are now realizing the importance of exercise and maintaining a healthy weight for bone and joint health, many people -- including busy CEOs -- do not realize this importance until later in life. These CEOs are not as fit as they were in high school or college, and though they have the drive to succeed in their athletics just as much as they do in the office, often times this drive in their exercise can result in injury. Dr. Greenberg recommends for these individuals sports with less impact on the body, such as cycling, yoga, or swimming.
At All-Star Orthopaedics, most patients can be seen within 48 hours of their call, if not that same day. Dr. Greenberg believes that surgery should be used as a last resort when treating orthopaedic issues. Many conditions, such as tendonitis and early arthritis can be treated with a combination physical therapy, braces, and modified activity. The next step of treatments utilize prescription medications and injectable and topical anti-inflammatories. Even when surgery is the best option, Dr. Greenberg offers minimally invasive joint replacement that incorporates smaller incisions, improved medical devices, partial knee replacements, and patient-specific knee replacements. Through the use of arthroscopic surgery, many of these issues can be treated as outpatient procedures, reducing downtime and allowing CEOs to return to their work -- and their exercise -- with the vigor they enjoy. All-Star Orthopaedics offer a range of orthopaedic surgery Dallas CEOs can employ as a way to get back to the field, the pool, the bike, or the court as quickly as possible.
