Thoughts on Having a Healthy Heart

Heart with family

It’s a sad fact that one in three will die of heart disease. It’s very important that you take the proper steps to ensure that you have a healthy heart. If you have concerns about your heart, we encourage you to see your doctor and ask the following questions:

  • Am I at risk for heart disease?
  • What tests do I need?
  • Is my blood pressure okay? If not, what should I do?
  • Is my cholesterol level okay? If not, what should I do?
  • Is my weight okay?
  • How much exercise do I need?
  • Am I at risk for diabetes?
  • How can you help me quit smoking?

Water Safety Tips

Hello Summer

If you plan on going in the water this summer, and many will, here are some quick safety tips:

  • Shower before and after going into a swimming pool.
  • Make sure to use swim diapers for babies and toddlers.
  • Avoid swimming or playing near places where storm water is released on the beach.
  • Stay out of the water for at least 48 hours after a storm.
  • Try not to swallow recreational water.
  • Always wash your hands before you eat or drink.

Heat Watch Reminder for Seniors This Summer

Heat

As the temperature heats up it’s important to remember our senior family members and friends. As we age, our capacity to deal with extreme temperatures declines. Below is a great resource about hyperthermia, who’s at risk, how to recognize this emergency, and what to do about it.

Physical Therapy Corner

Shoulder Decompression

Recent research has challenged the value of a common shoulder surgery called decompression. It’s most commonly performed for a shoulder condition called impingement. If you or someone you know is considering shoulder surgery, conservative care provided by our therapists is likely to be just as effective. At the very least, it will better prepare you if you do need surgery.
