Flying through the seasons

I hope that you stayed well and active during this beautiful warm October. It is hard to believe that we already flew through the beginning of the new school year and Halloween activities!

The leaves have turned colors and it is likely that many of you are starting to look into getting early bird deals on ski tickets and planning winter getaways. With that in mind, I wish to remind you to use this time to prepare your body for winter sports.

As you switch from your gardening and harvest collecting “exercises” to cardio and weights, make sure you have the proper knowledge and tools to keep your body healthy. If you need advice Nick Rinard Physical Therapy is here to help you make this transition! This way you are likely to avoid injuries and that disappointing muscle fatigue that causes you to stop too soon, while the snow on the slopes is just about to fall.

If the summer and beginning fall season vacations have not healed your injuries, now might be a good time to take care of them, before your insurance plan changes with the new calendar year.

What are you going to do to beat the heat?

Don’t allow the heat stop you from enjoying the activities you love, but be smart about your time in the sun.

Tips to remember:

Be patient with your body. If you regularly exercise outdoors, it can take up to 2 weeks for you to acclimate to the hotter conditions.

Hot days are not the time to attempt to beat your best time, instead just enjoy yourself!

Stay hydrated! Make sure that whatever you are doing, you bring water with you. If you can, plan your activities for earlier in the day or late at night when the temperatures are cooler.

We care about you!

Don’t deal with the pain, heal it with help at Nick Rinard Physical Therapy this summer.

Get evaluated as soon as possible after a car accident.

The best thing you can do for yourself after being involved in a car accident is to get evaluated at Nick Rinard Physical Therapy RIGHT AWAY- do not delay to give yourself the best chance at healing properly.


“I came in to get evaluated for a possible injury from a car wreck. I was then treated for whiplash.


I have improved range of motion in my neck now.


I now have an easier time sleeping on my side that I had before the injury.


My back feels strong now when lifting heavy weights as well.”

Surgery is NOT always the answer for a slipped disk.

 

Physical Therapy should be your first step.

Get back to feeling better at Nick Rinard Physical Therapy.

“I had a slipped disc and a pinched nerve.

The original instance gave me severe pain in my leg and numbness in my facet.

Through physical therapy progress, my pain was greatly reduced and the numbness decreased.

I came here barely able to walk or stand and now I can do both.

While not 100% cured, I have the tools to keep moving forward and continuing to improve my injury.”

Nick Rinard Physical Therapy gets results!

Nick Rinard Physical Therapy has used McKenzie’s scientifically proven assessment process that will identify the best treatment solution for back, neck and extremity problems for the last 20+ years.

“I first experienced pain from my left shoulder back in end of July 2021.

After visited my primary care doctor and did and x-ray reviewing no structural damage.

I start visiting my chiropractor monthly trying to resolve the issue.

At the beginning, I can see improvement. But the problem gradually got worse.

So I decided to pay a visit to Nick Rinard Physical Therapy as I had a good experience with my previous back problems a long time ago.

So after 6 visits, I can resume to my daily activities without experience any pains.”

Nick Rinard Physical continues to make safety our #1 concern!

Winter is just around the corner and the coronavirus still lingers in our community. It is hard to remember that just last winter many of us were still waiting to get vaccinated, and now all of our employees are vaccinated and for those eligible, they have received their booster shot.

Our clinic has remained open and available because our team has always but still continue to follow all guidance recommended by the state.

All employees at Nick Rinard Physical Therapy continue to put the safety of our patients first!

 

As a reminder…

 

New patients and established patients will find every visit very valuable and should not delay care due to increases in Coronavirus cases.

We are here to diagnose, educate, offer tools, listen to concerns, and meet all safety needs to get patients through this difficult time.

Nick Rinard Physical Therapy loves treating patients and happy to keep not only our doors open but also our hands and hearts to get everyone the results you have come to know and trust for the last 20 years.

Get informed!

Do you know the difference between in-network versus out-of-network terms that insurance companies use (to scare you)?

When a doctor signs a contract to be “in-network” with an insurance company, they are actually pledging to become an “agent” of the insurance company, and do what is best for the insurance.  They are restricted from advocating for their patients, which awkwardly creates a conflict of interest.  They are also agreeing to take lower and lower payments that may not cover the basic expense of what it costs to actually treat a patient – they are choosing to cut costs at the expense of quality.

Instead of seeing your doctor, you are seeing a “care extender”.

Instead of spending a full session with a provider you are spending more time with assistants.

Instead of having a provider that listens, you have a provider that is doing paper work.

Get your benefits checked with Nick Rinard Physical Therapy, even if you’re “out-of-network” you may be surprised what you find.

Even if we are “out of network”, Nick Rinard Physical Therapy gets results in fewer visits than other PT clinics, so your total out of pocket costs may not actually be more than lower quality “in-network” clinics.  Cost per visit is not relevant if there are fewer visits, and you actually get better!

Everyone deserves quality care!
