Summer Fun With Coastal Orthopedics & How To Avoid Injuries!

Summer Fun With Coastal Orthopedics & How To Avoid Injuries!

School is almost out for summer which means that your kids will have unlimited time for fun (within the boundaries you’ve set). The Coastal Orthopedics team always encourages your children to get outside, get active, and most importantly have fun! There are so many summer activities to choose from such as going on bike rides, playing on the playground, swimming, riding a skateboard and so much more. While it can seem like all fun and games, we advise that you take some precautions first!

How Hormone Imbalance Affects Everyday Life

How Hormone Imbalance Affects Everyday Life

Hormones decline naturally with age, but sometimes the changes can occur earlier than usual and can cause a significant impact on the way you feel and function. If your hormones aren’t optimized, you may feel tired, moody, experience weight gain, a decrease in your energy and libido, and have trouble sleeping. You don’t have to simply” deal” with these symptoms- bioidentical hormone optimization can normalize your hormones and help you feel like yourself again.

Meet Andrea!

Meet Andrea!

With the New Year – and many of us looking to eat healthier, exercise more, and just feel stronger, Andrea is someone to know! After a career in events and fashion, Andrea unexpectedly fell into the world of fitness after becoming a mom to three amazing kiddos, and finding herself on a path to feel more confidence and strength- physically and emotionally. She is now a personal trainer, health and fitness coach, and instructor at [solidcore]. Fun Facts: she is up at 430am (by choice!), was once the mascot for a minor league baseball team, and would love to be able to sing and dance like JLo in a next life! Andrea is motivating, strong, and a rockstar momma, and such a great example that when life doesn’t go as planned, there is always a way to make It better by taking matters into your own hands! Thank you Andrea!

5 Reasons why Moms Should Play Sports!

5 Reasons why Moms Should Play Sports!

As we head into Fall, many of us are signing our kids up for Fall sports—and reminiscing about our own childhood sports careers. What we should be doing? Signing ourselves up, too. Experts say sports aren’t just for kids, and moms especially should stay in the game to have a happier, healthier life. For whatever reason, dads are more likely to keep up with their favorite form of competitive exercise, from tennis to golf—so let’s try to join them if we can. Here are 5 reasons why we should all be staying in the game.

Meet Olympic Softball Player and Inspiration, Cat Osterman

Meet Olympic Softball Player and Inspiration, Cat Osterman

When softball star Cat Osterman competed at Athens in 2004, she was the youngest athlete to win a gold medal for Team USA—in fact, she was still a student athlete at the University of Texas. The pitcher won a silver medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and she came out of retirement at age 38 to compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. While the host team of Japan took gold this year, Cat’s legacy as an inspiration to young girls was cemented by the message she shared after her team’s second place finish. We interviewed her about her experience, and all she’s learned!

Tired of feeling worse than you should?  Bloated, lethargic, sleep-deprived, anxious?  The gastroenterologist Dr. Robin Rose left a thriving practice in Wilton to found Terrain Health because she was discouraged by a broken American healthcare system that practices McMedicine — medicine that emphasizes speed and price over quality and excellence. Terrain Health focuses on treating and preventing disease by integrating advanced testing and medical technology to reveal your unique biochemical individuality.

Is Your Child an Athlete? This Common Injury Is Important to Catch Early

Is Your Child an Athlete? This Common Injury Is Important to Catch Early

After a long winter and a year with more limited activity, many of us are eager to see our kids get back out there, playing sports and getting much needed physical activity!! That said, if your child is an athlete, you’re probably cheering them on one minute – and the next, holding your breath that they don’t get hurt.
Have you heard of sports overuse injuries? These injuries aren’t something you can see from the stands, like a collision or a fall. They start small, and are easy for athletes to ignore at first. If you catch this type of injury early enough, they’re no big deal. But if you wait, an overuse injury can turn into something serious – in the worst case, even impacting your child’s bone growth. So if you have an athlete in your life, what should they – and you – look for?

Meet Chloe

Meet Chloe

A lifelong venture capital investor turned a recent love for working with her hands into a cookie baking company, selling her gluten-free cookie dough on Instagram (@cookiesandsteak). Having left NYC officially when the pandemic hit, Chloe (mom to eight month old Beau!) has never looked back, believing Westport to be a little slice of heaven she feels so fortunate to have found. In her free time (while not baking!), Chloe loves a good beach run, a glass of red wine, and laughing with family and friends. She was a lacrosse player in college, and now spends her days having coffee with some of the top tech entrepreneurs in the world, and her nights with her family and the cookie Dough! Nothing could be better! Welcome to Westport Chloe; we’re so thrilled to have you – and your cookie dough!
