May 06, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
May 6, 2015 - As a board certified orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine doctor, Stacie Grossfeld M.D. understands the benefits of a healthy body. In order to encourage her patients to achieve maximum health and fitness, Dr. Grossfeld is helping people to increase their physical activity, eat healthier, and ultimately, to lose weight. She's offering patients at her Louisville medical practice access to a new line of wellness products designed to boost nutrition and help with weight loss. She's also partnering with the Louisville YMCA to provide patients with a free two-week membership, complete with guidance from an exercise physiologist.

Over the years, Dr. Grossfeld has witnessed countless patients struggling with chronic conditions like osteoarthritis, knee problems and other painful ailments. Oftentimes nothing seems to fully cure their symptoms. While medications, injections, physical therapy and even surgery might offer some relief, Dr. Grossfeld recognizes the impact that a healthier lifestyle, combined with weight loss, can also have by reducing the amount of stress on a person's joints. For example, every additional 10 pounds you are carrying over your ideal body weight increases the force to your knees by 30 to 60 percent.

In the past, Dr. Grossfeld has simply mentioned to people that they should try to lose some weight. Now she has decided to offer viable solutions. Recognizing that healthy weight loss can be an enormous challenge, Dr. Grossfeld hopes to make the process easier for her patients by providing affordable, safe, and successful weight loss products available at Orthopaedic Specialists. These products include: meal replacement shakes and energy drinks to replace sodas, coffee and teas, all working to increase energy levels, maximize nutrition and decrease appetite.

In an effort to make regular exercise more fun and convenient, Dr. Grossfeld has also partnered with the YMCA of Greater Louisville to be able to offer patients a free two-week introductory membership. This even includes a personal consultation with a trained exercise physiologist. With more than a dozen Louisville-area locations, the YMCA offers a top notch training facility with indoor gyms and tracks, racquetball courts, swimming pools, free weights, climbing walls, and a huge selection of fitness classes ranging from yoga, pilates, and cycling, to step aerobics, Zumba, body pump and boot camp.

Other than a pain-free lifestyle, losing weight and eating healthier can improve your self-esteem and help you enjoy physical activity more. Losing weight in a safe and healthy way may also benefit your mental well-being by producing greater levels of self-satisfaction. Losing weight and increasing physical activity can even help you save money by reducing the number of doctor and hospital visits you need to make over the course of a year.

The weight loss products offered by Orthopaedic Specialists have produced consistent, positive results for many people. Because these products are gluten-free, vegan certified, and include GMO screened ingredients, they are nutritious, safe and clean. Another benefit to this weight loss program available at Orthopaedic Specialists is that it includes easy online ordering and free coaching and support groups.

Dr. Stacie Grossfeld is double board certified in sports medicine and orthopedic surgery. She is a graduate of the University of Louisville School of Medicine, and is ranked in the top 10 orthopedic doctors in Louisville, Kentucky. In addition to her private sports medicine and orthopedic medical practice, she also serves as an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Louisville, and as the team doctor for numerous sports programs in the Louisville region including South Oldham High School and Assumption High School. She also enjoys serving on the Board of the Louisville Sports Commission as a co-chair for a special committee on Health and Wellness.

Dr. Grossfeld's passion for health and wellness goes far beyond the medical office. It is a mission she fully dedicates herself to each and every day. She strives to be a role model to her patients, staying physically active at the gym and on the tennis court, and working to make nutritious choices for her own diet. As a working mom with a very busy schedule, Dr. Grossfeld personally understands the challenges associated with weight loss and healthy nutrition. And that is why she decided to finally offer some good solutions to her patients including high quality weight loss products and an opportunity to try out the YMCA for free.
