New Year Health Tips from Holy Redeemer

It is a brand new year full of possibility. To start your year off right, we asked a few of our doctors what their #1 health tip is for the New Year.

Dr. Subbarao Gorti, Holy Redeemer Family Medicine

My number one health tip is infection control through proper hand washing and annual flu shots. These preventative measures go a long way.

Dr. Marina Shtern, Flannigan Family Medicine

I recommend that my patients strive to achieve heart healthy lifestyle. I recommend making small changes in the routine that are easy to sustain. If you do not exercise at all, start doing an aerobic activity for just 5 minutes a day. Be consistent and exercise every day. Eventually those 5 minutes will get easy and then you can add another 5 minutes. In time, you can build up to 20 minutes a day of physical activity. American Heart Association recommends 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity - with just 20 minutes a day you can be heart healthy!

Dr. David E. Reinhardt, Orthopedic Rehab and Surgery Associates

The best advice for 2020 is to live life now. From an orthopedic surgeon’s perspective, inactivity breeds inactivity and pain can be a contributing factor. Joint replacement of the hip, knee, or shoulder, allows for pain free activity. It can restore an active lifestyle. Even patients with minimal anterior hip replacement are walking without pain and recover quicker than those who undergo standard hip surgery. Get back to doing what you love quicker by addressing any joint pain issues you may be experiencing.
