An orthopedic surgeon who has fallen off his bike on a number of occasions shares his advice about how you can stay on yours

In my previous cycling blog, Get Bike Fit & Prevent Injuries, I covered how to avoid overuse injuries from bicycling by being bike fit and having a bike that fits you. Once you’re in that position, you’re ready to hit the road—not in an accident sense, but in a smart riding sense.

Bicycling has become extremely popular and for good reason, both orthopedically and for general good health. However, it has its dangers. There were more than 1.3 million cycling [Learn More]

If you’re upping your distance training, read these tips and get ready to pound more ground in the cooler fall weather.

Running in California is a year-round activity thanks to mild weather and beautiful scenery. And the cooler fall months ahead make training for longer distances that much more accessible. But as you increase your mileage, you also increase your chance of injury, dehydration, and burnout.

How Well Are You Treating Your Childs Concussion?

2022-05-16T15:21:37-07:00

 

Football season is here and so are concerns about concussions. Since high school students are twice as likely to have football injuries than college players, it is important for parents to be aware of concussion recovery.

Dr. Matthew Pecci was featured in How Stuff Works NOW’s article about the four common mistakes parents make when treating a child’s concussion.

Dr. Pecci shares the importance of easing back into activities following a concussion.

“People are still unclear about return to play in that they think that once symptoms are cleared that they can immediately get back to full sports.”
