FYZICAL IS STILL SERVING YOU DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME.

Whether you have pain or have been suffering for a long time, seeing a physical therapist at FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Centers can help you return to a more active and pain-free life. Give us a call at the location nearest you! • Critical post-neurological episode out-patient rehabilitation • Imperative gate keeper screening for patients, who may otherwise be unnecessarily entering emergent healthcare facilities At FYZICAL, we know we have an obligation to our community, nowmore than ever. Physical therapy can not only help the body heal as quickly as possible, but it can also help combat illness. The individualized stretches and exercise we prescribe for your treatment plan are great ways to boost your immune system. When your body is in shape, it quite literally has more strength to fight off unwanted viruses. Aiming for at least 20-30 minutes of physical activity a day can help strengthen not only you, but your immune system as well. Additionally, our physical therapists can help with nutritional services, which can prove to be a difficult task for many when distancing at home. Having a diet that is heavy on fruits and vegetables is perhaps one of the best ways to boost your immune system. The essential vitamins found in many fruits and vegetables are key to making sure your immune system is as healthy as possible. Essentially, at FYZICAL, we are still here to help you with whatever you may need – give us a call today.

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. The sedentary lifestyle that I’m sure many people have experienced since being quarantined to their homes can actually lead tomore aches, pains, and discomfort than one may think. Fortunately, we have you covered. As some may know, the Department of Homeland Security has deemed physical therapists as “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers” during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, FYZICAL will remain open and seeing patients during this time, while taking the necessary precautions to make sure everything is sanitary, and everyone is safe. As Homeland Security states, “If you work in a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, such as healthcare services and pharmaceutical and food supply, you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule.” For more information on our safety practices for treating patients during this pandemic, and/or how your appointments might function differently, don’t hesitate to contact us. Physical therapy is still necessary. Among other essential services, some of the most beneficial services we offer at FYZICAL include: • Essential post-surgical care (for non-elective and elective surgery)

THESE ARE THE PRECAUTIONS WE ARE TAKING

We understand that there is a lot of fear and uncertainty during this time. However, we can assure you that we care taking the necessary steps to make sure our patients are as safe as possible while they are being treated at our clinic. For starters, we will only be allowing 10 patients in our clinic at a time, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control. This will limit the amount of people congregating in the same area at once and greatly decrease the risk of anyone passing any contagions to fellow patients. Additionally, we will be following strict sanitary protocols by making sure every surface in our clinic is thoroughly cleaned and wiped down at all times. This will decrease the risk of any potential germs lingering on surfaces. 1. Staff are wearing gloves and face masks to reduce the spread of germs. 2. All staff, patients and those entering the facility are screened using questionnaires and temperature scans. 3. Patient progress is monitored closely with recommendations to progress to telemedicine video conferencing for virtual visits. Although we know the hesitation is still there when entering a public place, we would like to bring you some peace of mind in knowing that we are taking health protocols very seriously and will be doing our very best to ensure the highest levels of cleanliness and caution at all times. If you would like to know more about our

health practices for staying open during the quarantine, feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. Consult with a physical therapist today. For anything you may need or any questions you may have, our physical therapists are here for you. Schedule a consultation with FYZICAL today to discuss your questions, concerns, and needs at this time.

STRESS LESS WITH THESE TECHNIQUES

IMMUNITY BOOST VEGAN BEAN SOUP

Breathing for Health. Stress and anxiety change the way we breathe. In fact, breathing is a learned behavior that develops over our lifetime and is influenced by the physical and emotional strains we encounter. When we have poor breathing patterns, we change our body

INGREDIENTS • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil • 1 red onion, diced

• 4 garlic cloves, minced • 2 medium carrots, diced • 2 tbs ginger, finely grated • 4 cups lima beans (cooked or canned) • 1 tsp turmeric powder • 1.5 L (6 cups) vegetable broth • 1 small bunch of Tuscan kale, roughly chopped • Salt & pepper to taste DIRECTIONS

chemistry and ultimately our ability to utilize oxygen and cause our body to enter a fight or flight response. Luckily our breathing is also based on a positive feedback loop that allows you to change the way you breathe for the better. There are simple techniques to improve your breathing, reduce your anxiety, and optimize your chemistry. Start by placing your hands on your belly and feel your expansion when you breathe in. If you are like most people, a deep breath equates to lifting your shoulders and breathing through your upper chest. Your resting breathing should actually cause your belly to expand and not require your shoulders to raise. We call this diaphragmatic breathing or belly breathing. When you belly breathe, you are improving the ability of your lungs to expand and exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide. The correct exchange is needed to improve your body chemistry and move you towards relaxation. When our oxygen and carbon dioxide gas levels are optimized we feel more energetic, have a clearer mind, and are able to improve our concentration. Contact our office for more information about the Breathing Science Institute and how you can breathe a better you.

In a large saucepan, heat the oil and onion on medium heat until onion has slightly browned. Add in garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes, followed by carrots, ginger, beans, and turmeric cooking for a further 5-7 minutes. Once the ingredients are well combined, pour in the vegetable broth. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Add in kale and season to taste. Once the kale softens a little, the soup is ready.
