Physical AND Mental Health Matters: Access is Here for You
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, many things have changed. Many are out of work or school, are cooped up at home, and limited in their ability to interact with their friends and loved ones. Others continue to work in settings in which the stress level has dramatically increased due to short staffing, fear of infection, and many other reasons.
During this incredibly challenging time, it is important more than ever for us to take stock of how we are feeling overall. This definitely includes physical health, since being primarily at home has limited our ability to stay active. But perhaps more importantly, our mental health has been strained with the abrupt and significant change to our routines. Many aren’t commuting to work, going out with friends for dinner or happy hour, or visiting family members at their homes or care facilities.
At Access Physical Therapy & Wellness, we recognize the impact that these changes have had on our lives. We want you to know that we are here for your physical health needs as well as your mental health needs. While our scope of practice covers physical and occupational therapy, we emphasize the importance of treating the whole person. While most people seek care with us because of a physical need, it has likely affected more aspects of life than just the physical ailment.
We are prepared to assist in guiding you to resources that you may find helpful if you also need a skilled professional who specializes in your mental health, or even if you just need someone to talk to about your struggles right now, during the pandemic. Most communities have specific resources, and we can help connect you directly to an organization who can help you with your specific needs.
Your complete well-being is vital, especially during this time, and we want you to know that we are here if you need to reach out to us.
At Access, we remain open and continue to offer our outstanding physical and occupational therapy services in our offices. And we are now offering AccessAnywhere, which allows you to meet with your therapist virtually for evaluation and follow-up treatment sessions via telehealth platforms.
Whether you are returning to us to treat a new condition, or you know friends or family members who have developed aches and pains because they have been stuck at home, we are here to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
From all of us at Access Physical Therapy & Wellness, we want to wish our patients and their loved ones all the best during this time and let you know that we are thinking of you. We wish you the very best, and we are here for you if you need us.
If you’d like to set up an appointment, or just check in on what we offer call (914) 787-7022 or your local Access clinic. Our dedicated specialists are waiting to speak with you to answer any questions and help you set up your appointment.
