We’re staying open to keep our patients free from pain! MMA & Sports Rehab 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 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.

Introducing Telehealth

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 MMA & Sports Rehab, our telehealth services offer live consultation where you can meet and chat with your physical therapist about your treatment plan. 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:

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 (703) 884-7084 or visit rehabmma.com to schedule a telehealth appointment with our website chatbot. 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

• 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.

Exercise & Pain Relief

Patient Success Spotlight

If you have back or joint pain, there are probably some times when all you want to do is lie in bed all day. It’s tempting, but it might make the problem worse. Doctors used to prescribe bed rest for back pain and other chronic pain conditions, but studies have found that people who exercise and stay flexible manage their pain much better than those who don’t. If you do have a chronic pain condition like back pain or hip, knee, or shoulder problems, you shouldn’t begin an exercise programwithout guidance. Check with your physical therapist first. They have the expertise to help you develop an individualized exercise program. Have a professional; a physical therapist show you what is appropriate to do given your condition. Here are 7 exercises/activities you should do to alleviate pain:

“I worked with this team of doctors for four months and I feel amazing. ”

1. Walking 2. Swimming 3. Yoga 4. Tai Chi

5. Pilates 6. Stretching 7. Aerobics

“I couldn’t be happier with my experience here. I have had back pain for over a decade and finally was to the point to where I wasn’t sleeping and it was causing other issues. I worked with this teamof doctors for four months and I feel amazing. They are very knowledgeable about different types of treatment and lifestyle changes that will help you to stay pain free.” - A.G.
