Take Care of Your Physical Health!

Great Neck Physical Therapy ensures to keep you active!

What can be worse than the novel coronavirus?

The fears of the coronavirus are becoming real and are threatening people's way of life.  The fact is there are not that many reliable known facts! But the one thing that we know for sure, is that people are scared and are not doing things to take care of their physical health.   

Essential mobility, exercise, and rehabilitation to PREVENT and REDUCE physical problems are key to prevent hospitalization and pain.  Muscle weakness can reduce hours after immobility and lead to immediate illness. Physical and occupational therapy is vital to keeping patients moving and safe from future issues.   

You are to ask yourself - Do you want to be the person that falls at home, or lets your health degrade because of immobility, increased weakness, pain, and fear? The World health organization states “approximately 37.3 million falls severe enough to require medical attention occur each year.” “Each year an estimated 646 000 individuals die from falls globally”.

The CDC states “Deaths from unintentional injuries are the seventh leading cause of death among older adults (1), and falls account for the largest percentage of those deaths. Approximately one in four U.S. residents aged ≥65 years (older adults) report falling each year (2), and fall-related emergency department visits are estimated at approximately 3 million per year.*”

What will you do when the hospital can’t take care of you in a few weeks because of the patient over-saturation and overwhelmed doctors and healthcare practitioners?

Falls that lead to immobility lead to sickness, loss of strength, immobility due to a lack of exercise/ rehab can kill you.  Physical and occupational therapists have a job to prevent this.

If you don’t want to travel to the clinic we can send our therapists to your home for 1 hour -one to one treatment.  Therapists now have to be very sensitive to the coronavirus and take extra care to sanitize all equipment and also have the CDCs protocol for prevention applied at all times.

Home therapy is a great strategy with the highest level of safety since the therapist is working one on one with the patient and not in groups.  Patients will have to realize that it is very important to be vigilant, but also know that what they don’t do NOW, will eventually catch up with them in a few months.  Loss of function, strength and mobility is a silent secret killer. Don’t become a new statistic!
