    Wellness Wednesday Post Brought to you by OrthoVirginia

    Diane was tired of sitting on the sidelines. Years of knee issues had resulted in painful bone-on-bone arthritis and left her unable to participate in all the activities she loved – hiking with her family, keeping up with her twin daughters, playing with her many nieces and nephews. “It was so bad, I could barely get up off the couch,” she says. Under the care of Commonwealth surgeon David Novak, MD, Diane tried everything she could to avoid surgery, including physical therapy and cortisone injections. But when conservative management failed, she knew she ... Read More

    I have always chuckled at the answer, “I am round, round is a shape.”

    No two people are built exactly alike and that is what makes us special. Become familiar with your body type—knowledge is power and the tape measure is a necessary item in your style toolbox.

    Ladies are you average, petite or tall?

    Have you ever taken your true measurements?

    Where do you carry your weight— are you bigger on the top, bigger on the bottom, bigger in the middle? We all carry our weight somewhere on our frame ... Read More
