OSR Physical Therapy is aware of the updated guidance from the CDC: Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People. It is important to distinguish that these CDC guidelines are for public health, and that at this time the CDC has not changed the requirements for healthcare settings. The health and safety of our patients and employees continue to be our top priority. We will continue to monitor CDC guidance as well as evaluate our company policies to ensure we are able to respectfully and safely take care of everyone who enters our clinics.
Physical therapy is still necessary.
Among other essential services, some of the most beneficial services we offer at OSR Physical Therapy include:
- Essential post-surgical care (for non-elective and elective surgery)
- Critical post-neurological episode out-patient rehabilitation
- Imperative gate keeper screening for patients, who may otherwise be unnecessarily entering emergent healthcare facilities
- At OSR 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 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. 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 in many fruits and vegetables are key to making sure your immune system is as healthy as possible.
Essentially, at OSR Physical Therapy, we are still here to help you with whatever you may need – give us a call today.
How can I know I’m safe in your clinic?
We understand that there is a lot of fear and uncertainty during this time. However, we can assure you that we care taking the necessary steps to make sure our patients are as safe as possible while they are being treated at our clinic.
We are continuing to follow 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.
Although we know the hesitation is still there when entering a public place, we would like to bring you some peace of mind in knowing that we are taking health protocols very seriously and will be doing our very best to ensure the highest levels of cleanliness and caution at all times. If you would like to know more about our health practices for staying open during the quarantine, feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
