Randy’s Ramblings

COMMITTED TO OUR PATIENTS

I was looking forward to waxing philosophical this month but realize there’s a much more important message to deliver. Cheryl, Sarah, and I are incredibly committed to helping you have the best possible outcome from your physical therapy experience. However, you may not be aware that our office staff of Margarita and Danielle are equally as committed. They literally pull rabbits out of hats to help you get scheduled in a way that is most convenient for you and go to great lengths to help you get the best reimbursement from your insurance companies or Medicare. of helping a patient receive their maximum reimbursement from their insurance company. The patient had previously received treatment at another facility that had been unable secure payment from the insurance company for the services she received. Based on her previous experience this patient assumed that her treatments at Thomas PT would not be covered by her insurance. However, she recognized the value of the treatment that she was getting and chose to pursue treatment even though she thought she would have to pay out of her own pocket. Margarita was relentless in her efforts to secure authorization for the patient and was finally successful. At this time, the patient has been reimbursed for all her treatments at Thomas Physical Therapy. We are extremely proud of our staff here at Thomas Physical Margarita came intomy office yesterday bubbling with excitement over her recent accomplishment

Let’s face it: Maintaining your fitness this time of year is difficult. Even if you have kept up on your diet and workout habits during the spring and summer months, once the first leaf falls to the ground, even the idea of going to the gym seems strenuous. Why does this happen? All signs point to colder weather and bigger meals. In addition to the temperature drop that occurs during the fall and winter months, the number of daylight hours drops as well. You go from having up to 13 hours of daylight to only 9 by the end of November. This reduction leaves many avid runners with less time to get that jog in after work. In addition to this colder and darker weather, the emphasis on food this time of year also causes people to fall off the fitness wagon. Between scooping a third helping of Thanksgiving dinner and eating candy canes while decorating the Christmas tree, the choice to indulge during holiday meals leads many to toss aside portion control. While the holidays wreak havoc on many fitness routines, there are some workout trends that have maintained popularity throughout the year because they work for people of all fitness levels and lifestyles. The following three have withstood the test of the holiday season and may provide the incentive you need to keep your fitness up while putting the turkey legs down.

Therapy and take great joy in the confidence of knowing that everyone here will do everything we can tomake sure your rehab experience with us is a great one.
