To the staff at Therapy Unlimited,
Thank you so much for the excellent care you provided during my recovery with a broken knee and wrist. I really appreciated your expertise in developing the therapy regime to quickly regain my strength and mobility. The pool was a true highlight - it is just a gorgeous facility and water therapy was a key component of my recovery. And of course you all know how much I enjoyed the paraffin (wink!).
But truly, where Therapy Unlimited really shines is your staff. Every single one of you are so kind and pleasant - just genuinely nice people. That makes a difference - it was clear to me that everyone really cared about my recovery. I always looked forward to seeing your smiling faces (well, I could tell you were smiling under your masks!) and chatting with all of you.
Hopefully I won't need your services again for many years to come, but if I do, I would not hesitate to come back to your fantastic facility and staff!If I can provide a reference beyond this letter at some point - please don't hesitate to reach out.
~ Wendi W.
I came to Therapy Unlimited for lower back pain and was impressed with how the staff reduced my pain and improved my quality of life.
IF YOU SHOULD FALL...
- Before you attempt to get up, take a few deep breaths and take an inventory of your body to be sure you haven't been seriously hurt. Relax for a minute to get over the shock of falling. Don't try to get up right away, even if well-meaning bystanders rush to get you upright. Getting up too quickly or in the wrong way could make an injury worse.
- If you think you are injured, don't attempt to get up. Ask someone to all 911 right away. If you are alone and able to do so, use your cell phone to call for help. If you don't have a phone with you and can't get up, crawl to a telephone. If all else fails, shout for help.
- Let others help you. Calmly tell those around you how you intend to get up and how they can assist you. Maintaining your composure will keep you in charge.
- Try to bring some humor to the situation: humor relaxes you and those around you and makes it easier to recover yourself.
- Say thank you: express gratitude to anyone who has helped. Graciousness goes a long way.
- Let your doctor and other members of your health care team know you've fallen. It's important to talk to your doctor about your fall so he/she can work with you to understand the possible causes and minimize the risk of future falls.
BE PREPARED BEFORE A FALL HAPPENS!
- Don't wait until you fall to figure out how to get up. Work with one of our physical therapists to learn the best ways to get up and off the floor in case a fall should occur.
- Have the phone numbers of neighbors and/or relatives handy - carry them, as well as emergency numbers (local fire and/or police) in your wallet. Place them near your phone and program them into your cell phone.
- If you fall often, consider getting a personal response system. There are many personal emergency response systems that are controlled with a personal help button on a wristband, waist clip, or pendant.
