HANDS-ON PHYSICAL THERAPY IS STILL SERVING YOU DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME

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 to more 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 InfrastructureWorkers” during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, Hands-On Physical Therapy will offer TelePT services to patients during this time. 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 TelePT services during this pandemic, and/or how your appointments might function differently, don’t hesitate to contact us. Our goal is to start or continue to assist you with your health and treatment goals. Our qualified and trusting staff and their professional knowledge & abilities are available and ready to communicate with you via phone/video call.

These types of services are not uncommon and fall under approved TeleMedicine standards and practices. Many insurance companies already allowand approve for these services to be provided to their members.This is a great and effective alternative option for all our patients; New & Existing. We highly recommend this option to all, especially those patients that do not want to stop treatment and stop their current progress. At Hands-On Physical Therapy, we know we have an obligation to our community, now more 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 systemas 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 inmany fruits and vegetables are key tomaking sure your immune system is as healthy as possible. Essentially, at Hands-On Physical Therapy, we are still here to help you with whatever you may need – give us a call today.

KEEPING UP WITH YOUR PHYSICAL HEALTH AT HOME!

Just because you’re in the confines of your home during this time, it doesn’t mean you can’t still achieve a workout. Nowmore than ever it is important to take care of your health. At Hands-On Physical Therapy, we are still here to help you achieve your physical goals, evenwhile you are quarantined at home. Below are some exercises you can do on your own to get moving and stay active, even as everything is closing down: 1. Dumbbell Wood Chops. Looking for exercises to do with your dumbbell at home? Begin by holding the dumbbell with both hands above one side of your head. Swing the dumbbell in a controlled motion diagonally down across your body, toward your opposite hip. Use the power from your hip rotation to make this swinging motion. 2. Running Man. Begin by lifting your right leg so that it is parallel to the floor. Bend your arms into proper running positions, with right arm bent in front of your torso and your left armbent behind your torso. In one motion, extend your right leg so that it is behind you and lean forward with your torso, extending your right arm in front of you and your left armbehind you. 3. Split Stance Side Plank with Arm Raise. For the Split Stance Side Plank with ArmRaise, begin by lying on one side of your body, propping yourself up with your bent arm on that side. Lift your hips so you are in a side plank position, and lift your opposite arm to the sky. Hold this position for 30 seconds or until you begin to feel tired. Repeat these steps on the opposite side. 4. Dynamic Hamstring Warm Up. Begin standing up straight. Bend your right knee, and extend your left leg out in front of you so the heel of your foot is to the floor and your toes are to the sky. Bend your torso over your outstretched leg in a 90 degree angle, feeling the stretch in your left hamstring. Repeat these steps on the opposite side, making sure to alternate between each of your legs to get a good stretch on both sides. 5. Dynamic Hip Flexor Warm Up Straight. Place one foot in front of you in a slight lunge position and reach your arms to the sky. Arch your back and look up to feel the stretch in your back, shoulders, and neck. Repeat these steps on the opposite leg. This exercise is also very helpful to do whenever you are feeling tight or achy in your back, neck, or upper extremities! If you have any questions about these workouts or if you’d like to inquire about additional advice to get moving from the comfort and safety of your own home, don’t hesitate to call or message us.

“They also gaveme a comprehensive list of excercises (with photos) for me to do at home!” “This is my second round of physical therapy here at Hands-On, after 2nd knee surgery. Everybody is nice, professional and beyond helpful. After my initial review with Dr. Kostas, the front desk ladies were very accommodating scheduling my future appointments. Blair and Nessa are the ones helping me recover while patiently answering any questions. They also gave me a comprehensive list of excercises (with photos) for me to do at home, to make sure my recovery is healthy. Definitely recommend!!! Thank you “Hands-On Team” - M.T.
