Activity levels predict reaction to orthopedic treatments [VIDEO]


As an orthopedic doctor, you know how difficult it can sometimes be to determine how a patient will respond to treatment. Now, a study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons has found that patients' activity levels can be a good predictor.

For instance, one interesting find from the study reported highly active patients have a higher risk of re-injury following an ACL reconstruction.

Keeping track of patients' activity levels may seem difficult, but it doesn't have to be if you have an EHR system. Patients can access their personal health records through patient portals and make notes about how active their lifestyle is.
