Stay safe and hydrated this summer with these simple tips from David Raptosh, M.A., OTR/L:

💧 Drink plenty of fluids.
🍉 Eat foods high in water content, such as fruits and vegetables.
☀️ Drink additional water in hot or humid weather to help lower your body temperature and replace what you lose through sweating.
💦Start hydrating the day before strenuous exercise. During the activity, replenish fluids at regular intervals and continue drinking after you're finished.
☕ Avoid caffeine.

Contrary to popular belief, thirst is not the best indicator that you need to drink more water. Once the thirst mechanism kicks in, you’re already dehydrated. Prevention is key.

Recovery and rehabilitation for long-haul COVID-19 patients 07/15/2021

Recovery and rehabilitation for long-haul COVID-19 patients

One in four people face COVID-19 long-haul symptoms after contracting the virus. Select Medical, NovaCare Rehabilitation’s parent company, developed the Recovery and Reconditioning program to help those individuals regain their strength. Our program, which was recently validated and recognized by the CDC focuses on the specific deficits in patients recovering from COVID-19. Patients like Dianne Shields, a dialysis nurse, who went through the Recovery and Reconditioning program after experiencing long-haul symptoms. Dianne began to see improvements in her balance, stability and endurance as well as her grip strength, dexterity and fine motor skills.

Scripps National News gives an inside look into the Recovery and Reconditioning program and Dianne’s story: http://ow.ly/gSee50FwQBU.

Our Recovery and Reconditioning Program was just recognized in a recent study from the CDC, reporting that those who had COVID-19 could benefit from physical rehabilitation services. This study was done in collaboration with Select Medical, NovaCare Rehabilitation’s parent company.

A new CDC study finds that rehabilitation patients who have had COVID-19 had poorer physical and mental health compared with cancer rehabilitation patients. Health care systems should be prepared to recognize and meet the ongoing needs of these patients. In addition, maximizing vaccination for all eligible people will prevent COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 conditions. Learn more: https://bit.ly/7027a2.

“A few years ago, I started getting into running a lot more. I ran my first ever 25k, started trail running and competed in obstacle races. As many runners know, increased training can also mean new aches and pains. A small tear in my labrum left me unable to walk without an intense limp. This is what led me to NovaCare.

“Without the treatments, strength training and care from the team at NovaCare, I would have had to have surgery. I learned how to properly activate my muscles, corrected my running form, strengthened my hip and avoided surgery. I am back to running with no hip pain, all thanks to the physical therapists at NovaCare.”

Today, we pause to reflect on Juneteenth and commemorate the 156th anniversary of news of the Emancipation Proclamation reaching Texas, fully abolishing slavery in the United States.

Nearly 100 years following that first Juneteenth, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King wrote this in his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail”:

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

This day, and Dr. King’s words, remind us that much has changed, and much work remains.
