DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN ST I LL GET YOUR PT?
Physical therapy is a great way to make sure you are still in optimum health and your body is strong during this time. As some may know, the Department of Homeland Security has deemed physical therapists as “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers” during the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, Dr. Matos, who is an official with the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center, Department of Defense Global Emerging Infections Surveillance and Response System, and the CDC has these words to share about physical therapy: “Physical therapists are essential in flattening the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. They play a key role in keeping people they can help out of doctors’ offices and ER’s. This will not only free up themedical teams to treat those impacted by COVID-19, but also limit the exposure of those seeking the care of the physical therapist.” At Avenues Physical Therapy, we knowwe 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 exercises 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. The essential
vitamins found inmany fruits and vegetables are key tomaking sure your immune system is as healthy as possible. Our services will be analyzed on a case-by-case basis. If you are in need of in- person care, 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. If your treatments are able to be done virtually, we will be helping you through our TelePT services. Essentially, at Avenues Physical Therapy, we are still here to help you with whatever you may need. Our aim is to help you stay healthy and strong during this time. Give us a call today.
