Nutrition Q&A

What is nutrition?

Nutrition focuses on the vitamins, proteins, and other nutrients your body needs to support your joint health and overall wellness.

Nutritional deficiencies in your diet can increase your risk of several chronic diseases and other complications. For instance, if you’re not getting enough vitamin D, you might be prone to joint diseases like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

A lack of proper nutrition can also cause symptoms that affect your quality of life, such as:

  • Anemia
  • Hair loss
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Skin rashes
  • Digestive upset

Without proper nutrition, you may also be at risk of frequent colds and other acute illnesses that result from a weakened immune system.

Improving your daily nutrition can relieve many uncomfortable issues and improve your overall vitality.

What nutrition services are available?

The team at Reflex Knee Specialists provides nutrition education to ensure patients understand the importance of a  daily diet that is low in pro-inflammatory foods. In addition to the available education services, the practice offers a wide range of nutritional supplements, including multivitamins that support your long-term health.

Your provider can also recommend supplements that improve the function of your joints and preserve the health of your bones.

What can I expect during a nutrition consultation?
