“We know that exercise is good for both the body and the mind, but repetitive exercise can place extra stress on our joints and other parts of our bodies,” says Dr. Unverferth. “We are always learning about the complex relationship between movement and the health of our joints, and it is rewarding to me to help pass this knowledge along to athletes and active adults as I help them regain their mobility.”
Dr. Unverferth is married and has two grown children. His son Kurt is a joint replacement specialist in the practice, and his daughter Kristin as a vet practice in Santa Barbara, California.
