WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER! And We’re Here for You (Virtually) T hings have really been upside down, haven’t they? It’s causing all of us to shift our lives and create a new normal. It was a While there’s a lot out of our control right now, we’re doing our best to focus on what we can do. I’ve been finding sanity in Peloton workouts — it’s one of my favorite ways to work out, and it’s easy to do at home. When it comes to staying mentally and physically sane, moving and getting a sweat on is the best magic I know of.

heartbreaking decision for us to temporarily close our office because of COVID-19, but it was the best decision for keeping everyone safe and healthy. We’re taking it one day at a time and doing all we can to be here for you until we can open our doors again. Our main focus over the last two months has been how we can continue to provide physical therapy to folks. Our approach is very hands on, so while it’s less than ideal, we’re turning to telehealth to be able to offer care. As much as we strongly believe that nothing replaces in-person care, this is a way to get to people when they can’t get to us. We got started with our first telehealth appointments at the end of March, and it’s been a learning experience for everyone! Alice had the very first virtual appointment with a client, and I think they both got some much-needed laughs out of the experience as they figured out the ins and outs of the technology and providing physical therapy remotely. After getting over some initial humps, they were able to have a productive appointment. I know it was helpful for our client to have access to the care that’s helping them heal and get back to their life fully functioning. We’ll just keep learning and getting better at this, won’t we? We’re in this together! With some extra time on our hands, our team is also studying up on the latest research and articles on the best practices for providing care. We want to be here and ready for when our clinic reopens!

As many of us are working from home these days, it’s as important as ever to find ways to keep moving. On our website, you’ll find posture tips, stretch and warmup routines, and other articles geared toward your health and well-being. Diaphragmatic breathing is something we use often at our clinic because of the mental and physical benefits. You can watch our quick how-to video at Youtu.be/ r9jV6Eh22Mw. We’re keeping our Facebook page stocked with videos of simple exercises and stretches you can do at home to keep yourself healthy and injury-free. Go check them out and let us know what you think! Know that we are doing all we can to be here for you during this time. We want to stay connected without inundating you with emails, so know that every message from us is sent intentionally because we feel that the information in it is valuable to you. If you have any questions about receiving physical therapy during this time or continuing your physical therapy at home, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Wishing you a healthy month,

-Maureen Madden
