    HOME OFFICE HELP

    We hear a lot about ‘ergonomics’ in the workplace but what exactly does that mean…Dictionary.com defines it as "the study of how people work in their environment, an example of ergonomics is a study of how people who primarily sit in their office get work-related back injuries". So why do you think this is…well I’m going to tell you it all comes back to one word: POSTURE!! And with everyone working from home I guarantee that office chair you purchased to match the wallpaper was not exactly meant to keep you in proper posture for prolonged periods of time. So, how should we be sitting at our desks…

    • Level line of sight
    • Use headphones or volume turned all the way up in order to avoid leaning forward to hear
    • External keyboard with wrists in neutral
    • Hips slightly higher than your knees
    • Feet flat on the floor
    • Engage your stomach muscles to prevent stress on your lower back

    Still find yourself slouching…another option is converting that sitting desk to a standing desk! Make sure your distributing your weight evenly between both your feet though- no leaning to one side!

    Some other tips for working from home include: taking a break every hour to walk around and stretch, drinking plenty of water and eating healthy snacks and meals. Remember, now is the time to take control of your health! You’re not alone; we’re doing it together!

    Until next time,

    Taylor

    Telehealth Update!

    Just reaching out to update all of you on our telehealth platform that is officially up and running! Let’s answer some common questions first:

     

    1. What is ‘Telehealth’? Teleheath is an option for people to recieve physical therapy treatment within the comfort of their own homes via prescription of home exercise program, video chat, audio chat or text communication. 

     

    2. Who is eligible for Telehealth? In order to initiate your telehealth sessions you will need to have an initial evaluation that was performed in the clinic within the last year. Keep in mind: the clinic is still open for in person initial evaluations and then you may be treated via telehealth for your future appointments.

     

    3. Will my insurance cover Telehealth? Nearly all insurances are covering telehealth sessions with no cost to the patient (copays, co-insurance, etc.). This includes Medicare!

     

    4. How do I schedule my session? Simply EMAIL: TAYLOR@COMPREHENSIVEPTSOLUTIONS.COM and we will send you some times available for your appointments as well as information on the video platform we utilize, etc. 

     

    We look forward to hearing from you and initiating your telehealth experience! Remember, we’re all in this together and together we can come out of this happy, healthy and pain free!
