Phyiscal Therapy During the COVID-19 Outbreak
The Department of Homeland Security has defined physical therapy as an essential service. The reason for this is to keep patients out of emergency rooms and doctors offices for musculoskeletal problems or pain interfering with your physical and/or mental health. Our primary goals are to keep you safe and healthy.
At Physical Therapy Specialists, we are here for your acute needs. If your pain is preventing you from taking care of yourself or your family, physical therapy may be necessary during this time. Please call our office to assess whether a TeleRehab visit or in office visit is appropriate.
If you recognize that anxiety is contributing to increased pain, you are not alone! We specialize in pain and we have the tools to help you navigate through this. If you are interested in participating in our TeleRehab pain management program, please email your physical therapist.
In the meantime, we realize many of you have had to transition to working from home. Below are some exercises to help support you in your new work environment and minimize stress and strain while maintaining strength.
Please know that we are here for you and feel free to call or email if you have any questions or concerns during this unprecedented time.
