We are now open and available to see patients in clinic. JumpStart therapist are also offering telehealth visits. For the safety of our staff, patients, and families we have implemented the following guidelines:

  1. Prior to coming to work each day the staff must self certify that they are fever free, have not had a fever in the past 48hrs, and have not been told to self isolate by a public health agency.
  2. All staff will be wearing the appropriate PPE including masks, and will glove for some manual based interventions.
  3. We have adjusted staff schedules to decrease the overall number of people occupying each clinic at any one time.
  4. Tables have been moved to promote social distancing of greater than six feet.
  5. We are cleaning before, during, and after patients are in the treatment area. This includes anything that may be touched by the patient. Our cleaning guidelines are based on recommendations from the CDC. Staff will be washing their hands before and after each patient treatment.
  6. Patients that are coming into the clinic must complete a screening tool to help prevent the spread of COVID19. This screening questionnaire will be sent to each patient prior to their appointment. The same questions apply to each return visit.
  7. We are asking that only patients come into the treatment area. If a caregiver must assist the patient, then the caregiver must also complete the screening tool.
  8. Any patient or caregiver coming into the clinic must be wearing a face mask from home before entering the building.
  9. Once a patient enters we are asking them to please wash their hands before they start working with the therapists.
  10. In regards to telehealth, we are using a secured platform and can easily send out the link for a telehealth visit with the therapist of your choice. Most insurances are covering this option.

Please contact us via our website or call one of the clinics should you have additional questions and to book your appointments now.

Stay safe and be well.

More on Prehabilitation

There is some recent scientific research that suggests that “prehabilitation” helps patients recover faster. Below are some conclusions from the research. Please understand that there are limitations to any research, but if you can do some exercise before surgery, chances are that it will make the recovery process easier and maybe even faster.

High Intensity Training Before Total Knee Replacement Helps You Recover Faster: The present study supports the use of preoperative training in end-stage OA patients to improve early postoperative outcomes. High-intensity strength training during the preoperative period reduces pain and improves lower limb muscle strength, ROM, and functional task performance before surgery resulting in a reduced length of stay at the hospital and a faster physical and functional recovery after TKA.

Prehabilitation Cuts Costs in Joint Replacement Patients: The use of preoperative physical therapy was associated with a 29% decrease in the use of any post-acute care services. This association was sustained after adjusting for comorbidities, demographic characteristics, and procedural variables.

Prehabilitation for ACL Reconstruction Patients: There is some evidence that prehab results in better functional outcomes and return-to-sport even up to 2 years after surgery.

More on Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

After shoulder decompression: The standardized physical therapy exercise intervention resulted in statistically significant and clinically relevant improvement in shoulder pain and function at 12 months compared with usual care.

After knee meniscectomy: Physical therapy associated with home exercises seems to be effective in improving patient-reported knee function and range of motion in patients post-arthroscopic meniscectomy, although the included randomized controlled trials were classified from moderate to high risk of bias and should be interpreted with caution.

After Neck Fusion Surgery: Physical Therapists identified specific activities that they felt were most appropriate for rehabilitation following neck fusion surgery. These findings may help to direct both appropriate therapy prescription following ACDF, as well as future research.

After Back Surgery for Lumbar Stenosis: Evidence suggests that active rehabilitation is more effective than usual care in improving both short- and long-term (back-related) functional status.

After Back Surgery Early Rehab Improves Function in the Short-Term: the study revealed that an early rehabilitation program consisting of therapeutic exercises and a written educational booklet after low back surgery improves transfer abilities and basic activities in one month.
