We’re Staying Open To Keep Our Patients Free From Pain!

home. If you wish to remain home, we also offer telehealth services that will allow our physical therapists to continue your treatments remotely. You can read more about this service on the other side of this insert. Your cooperation in this tough time is what makes us able to continue to provide valuable services to you and your family. We appreciate your ongoing support and wish you good health and safety.

Colorado Injury Treatment Center is committed to your health and wellbeing. In the wake of the recent spread of COVID-19, also known as the novel coronavirus, we are taking every precaution. Though many businesses have closed their facilities, physical therapy has been deemed an essential healthcare provider, so we will continue to stay open to provide quality physical therapy to our patients. We believe that continuing to offer physical therapy will not only help patients continue their recovery and stay on course but also give patients that have been recently injured or suffering from chronic pain someone to readily consult without visiting the doctor’s office. That being said, we want to assure all patients that we are taking the proper precautions to encourage social distancing and to keep our facilities clean. Before and after every session, we are asking our clients and staff to wash or sanitize their hands. Additionally, we have increased the number of times per day that we sanitize our equipment and facility. To do your part to prevent the spread of this contagious disease, we ask those who may be demonstrating symptoms of coronavirus— coughing, sneezing or fever—to please stay

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic that has been causing numerous health care facilities to shut down, we as medical professionals are diligently trying to serve our patients in the best ways possible without risking the spread of this disease. Because of this, in addition to keeping our facilities open, we are also offering virtual E-Visits and Telehealth services for those who wish to stay at home. By providing care for our patients virtually, as opposed to in person, we are able to keep both our patients and PT providers safe. For more information on our telehealth services and how they may benefit you, feel free to call us at 303-745-0803 to schedule a telehealth appointment with our website chatbot, OR go to our telehealth appointment page link to schedule your virtual appointment! What is telehealth? You may be wondering what exactly telehealth is. Essentially, it is a way for us to make sure that our patients are still receiving the highest possible quality of care they need from a remote location. Telehealth services can be accessed via your smartphone or computer, and you will be able to perform your PT treatments from the comfort of your own home during this quarantine. You will also be able to track your progress and see how you are improving throughout your treatments – without coming directly to our clinic. At Colorado Injury Treatment Center, our telehealth services offer live consultation where you can meet and chat with your physical therapist about your treatment plan. Additionally, you can view the exercises and stretches that you are expected to complete each day and log your advancement through your treatment plan. You can also use this app to access ongoing helpful tools and tips, such as our blogs – you can even use it to send these tips to a friend or family member who may also need help! Introducing Telehealth We’re using the most convenient method to provide the physical therapy you need!

At any point you can also message one of our physical therapists to ask questions or get advice about your condition. That being said, there are numerous conditions that can still be treated and improved via telehealth services, including, but not limited to:

• Arthritis pain • Back pain • Headaches & migraines • Post-surgical rehab • Respiratory issues

• Injury rehab • Sports medicine/athletic training • Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s Disease, & other chronic conditions • And much more!

In addition to allowing for the practice of social distancing, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, telehealth also has other benefits for patients. As stated by the American Physical Therapy Association, just a few of these include: • Patients typically in clinical or hospital settings could be managed from their homes • Quicker screening, assessment, and referrals can improve care coordination within collaborative delivery models such as accountable care organizations or patient-centered medical homes • Telehealth can facilitate consultation between providers or in clinical education

1. Limit your time outdoors. Each spring, trees release billions of tiny pollen grains into the air. When you breathe them into your nose and lungs, they can trigger an allergic reaction. Staying inside can help, especially on windy days and during the early morning hours, when pollen counts are highest. 2. Tweak your home. Simple changes make a difference. Shut all windows to keep out pollen. Use an air conditioner to cool your home instead of a fan, which draws in air from outside. Take off your shoes at the door and ask guests to do the same. That keeps allergens outside. Finally, don’t allow guests, or yourself, to smoke inside the home. It can make allergy symptoms worse. If you or someone you live with smokes, now is a good time to quit. 3. Keep it clean! Be sure to wash all surfaces regularly with single-wipe dust rags (if using cleaning rags, be sure to wash them in hot water after each use). If you find mold, use water and detergent to clean, then let it air-dry completely. Finally, wash all bedding once a week in hot water and dry in a hot dryer.
