OrthoHealth Program

OrthoHealth is a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to address adult and pediatric weight management, along with health and wellness parameters that include Optimizing Nutrition, Reducing Stress, Pain-free Movement, Improved Sleep Habits, and Enhanced Overall Performance.

Our physicians’ goal is to develop a plan for individualized healthy lifestyle changes in the adult and pediatric populations. They will focus on metabolic management and helping patients create simple, evidence-based habits to optimize their health. We design a unique program for each patient to reach their goals focusing on reasonable and sustainable changes that help optimize their long term health.

Patients in the program have access to many IBJI resources including physicians, surgeons, physical therapists, registered dietitians, certified health coaches as well as fitness classes, personal trainers and performance training through the IBJI Health Performance Institute. Through collaborative partnerships, patients may also be connected with behavior therapists, psychologists and sleep specialists as needed.

How OrthoHealth can help you:

  • Optimizing Metabolic Health: Our physicians will focus on unlocking and addressing your personal medical parameters and finding an individualized plan to help you achieve metabolic health. This will result in an increase in energy, strength and overall metabolism resulting in weight loss.  
  • Reducing Stress: Is stress taking a toll on your health? Do you feel tired or drained some days? The OrthoHealth team will explore your lifestyle and assist you in creating habits to be the best version of yourself. Reducing your stress will lower overall cortisol levels and assist with optimizing your metabolic health. 
  • Physical Therapy to achieve Pain-free Movement: Our team of Physical Therapists can assess your current lifestyle and take a whole body approach to evaluate and design an individualized treatment plan in conjunction with your IBJI physicians with the goal of achieving pain free movement. Your pain free movement will be a key factor in achieving your metabolic health.  
  • Optimize Nutrition: Learning proper nutrition to fuel your body is the key to performance and recovery. Food is the best medicine we have and learning what your body needs to eat can help you optimize your health. We can educate you on your daily intake of protein, vitamins, minerals and proper hydration to optimize your energy and fitness.
  • Sleep: Sleep is a critical component to health. With our sleep partners we can evaluate current sleep patterns and sleep hygiene and if needed set up interventions to improve quality or quantity sleep which will reduce overall stress hormones and boost energy levels and metabolism.
  • HPI: Our Health Performance Institute will come together with your medical providers to educate you in the importance of active movement with efficient movement and design a program to complement the current goals set by your OrthoHealth providers. They offer In person and Virtual individual and group sessions.
