Vital Information Regarding the Coronavirus COVID-19

NYDNRehab is diligently monitoring reports from the CDC to ensure we have the most updated information related to protocols, initiatives and recommendations, and that we are prepared to respond quickly and effectively to keep you and our employees safe.

We have increased our frequency of cleaning and disinfecting throughout the office including wiping down the immediate areas after each client. Our employees have been instructed as per CDC guidelines to wash their hands frequently and not to come to work if sick or have been exposed to someone symptomatic.

NYDNRehab Guidelines For Being Present for a Treatment Session:

  • We will not be seeing patients who have traveled abroad and have not completed the 14-day self-quarantine period.
  • We will not be seeing patients who have a fever or flu-like symptoms.
  • We will be offering online sessions for exercise guidance and self – management techniques. Let us know and we can schedule you for a remote session for the same billing arrangement.

Symptoms for COVID-19 May Appear 2-14 Days After Exposure and Include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

Guidelines for Prevention and Safety:

  • Wash hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or into your sleeve.
  • Sleep at least 8 hrs per night.
  • Frequent exercise is an important way to strengthen and maintain a healthy immune system.
  • Supplement with Vit D w/K3 and 1000mg Vitamin C.
  • Consider greeting others verbally instead of physical contact.
  • Use sanitizer or “on guard” essential oil when in public areas when lavatories are not available.
  • Do not go to work if you have a fever or flu-like symptoms.
  • Stay at home and wear a mask in public if you are displaying any of the known symptoms.

We encourage you to acquaint yourselves with information about COVID-19, so that you can make informed decisions about how best to protect yourselves, your loved ones, and members of our shared community. We recommend the following resources:

We are dedicated to your health and safety. All current evidence indicates that those who are in good health, and with uncompromised immune systems, are at very low risk. Let’s all work together to use this time to learn more about how we can decrease stress and improve our individual and collective immunity.

In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
