Boomeritis

Written by Dr. Steven Stoller, MD on .

The baby boomers are one of the most active aging populations in the recent history, with over 8000 per day rolling in Medicare. As a result of this change of lifestyle, these patients developed athletic injuries unique to this age group.

Being a member of this group, I participate in boxing, basketball, polo, running, swimming, and working out. Refusing to give up these sports, I've researched and found a multi-disciplinary system to heal and rehabilitate many injuries that occur in our age group. Just because you're getting older doesn't mean you have to give up athletic activity. However you do have to be smarter and prepare yourself to continue an active lifestyle.
