Our physical therapy team is committed to keeping our patients healthy and have provided tips to keep you healthy while at home. Here are five tips to keep you upper body healthy and strong.
1.) Do push ups against the wall during conference calls/phone calls.
2.) Do 20 arm circles forward/backward, palms up/palms down at each commercial break during your Netflix binge watching sessions, commercial breaks or between episodes.
3.) Squeeze your shoulder blades together tightly while doing the dishes.
4.) Hold your full water bottle straight out in front of you and straight out to the side for 30-60 seconds after filling/refilling.
5.) Punch it out – do boxing jabs and crosses to the beat of a song for the entire song.
Beacon’s physicians and physical therapy team are still open and seeing patients if you are in pain or need our help with enhanced health and safety protocols. We are also offering telehealth video visits for our existing patients. Call 513-354-3700 to schedule your appointment.
