Iberia Sports. How To Recover Quickly From Foot & Ankle Pain

STAYING FLEXIBLE

KEEPING YOUR HEALTH IN MIND WE’RE TAKING EXTRA MEASURES TO KEEP OUR PATIENTS SAFE Though many businesses have closed their facilities, Iberia Sports & Rehab has been deemed an essential healthcare provider and will remain open 7 am - 7 pm to give quality physical therapy to those in need.We believe that continuing to offer physical therapywill not only help patients continue their recovery and stay on course but also give recently injured patients or chronic pain sufferers someone to readily consult without visiting the doctor’s office. That being said, we want to assure you that we are taking the proper precautions to encourage social distancing, maintain a virus-free environment, and provide hand sanitizer and gloves for staff and patients.We have adjusted our schedules to accomodate patients every hour and have made sure to comply with social distancing guidelines by only having 10 people in each clinic at a time. 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. WE WANT YOU TO KEEP MOVING! Though it is tempting to be sedentary and make poor diet choices while self-isolating, these habits have the potential to inhibit your immune system and increase your risk of infection. Iberia Sports & Rehab wants to encourage its patients to stay active in order to not only stay on track with their recovery but also boost their immunity and maintain their health. During this time, even if you cannot keep your physical therapy appointments, we encourage you to continue your prescribed exercises at home. If you’re looking for additional exercises you can do, call 337.367.3331 to consult your physical therapist at Iberia Sports & Rehab. We’re wishing our patients health and safety!

THE BENEF I TS OF A REGULAR STRETCHING PROGRAM

As you age, your muscle tissue actually dries out a little, tightening. This causes a loss of range of motion in your joints and tissues. In addition to the loss of range of motion, it can really limit your active lifestyles and hinder day-to-day, normal motions. Tasks that used to be simple, such as dressing or squatting down to tie your shoes, now become extremely difficult. A regular stretching program helps lengthen your muscles and makes daily living activities much easier. Everyone can learn to stretch, regardless of age or flexibility. Stretching should be a part of your daily routine, whether you exercise or not. It does not have to involve a huge amount of time, but stretching can end up giving you huge results! Stretching is a natural part of what we do on a daily basis. You might notice that if you have been sitting in a particular position for a long time, you stretch unconsciously. It feels good! In addition to that good feeling, a consistent stretching program will produce large gains in flexibility and joint movement. Be kind to your muscles and they will be kind to you!
