Breakthru Goes Pink!

Thanks for your generosity & support! 

Breakthru will be accepting donations for Breast Cancer Research until October 31.

METAvivor gives 100% of donations, funding research grants to help extend the lives of MBC patients with the goal of making MBC a chronic disease instead of a terminal one. Cracking the MBC code helps ALL stages of breast cancer patients as more than 90% of MBC patients were once early stage patients.

METAvivor appreciates your donation and honors your generosity by ensuring that 100% of your donation goes toward supporting grants for metastatic breast cancer research.  Click here to donate.

 

Fitness is BACK and we missed you!

During this time, our focus is on maximizing the health and safety of our patients, training clients, and fitness members by providing care through a number of different options while also adopting CDC-guided, best practice screening methods, exposure protection, sanitization and social distancing standards throughout our facilities!

Mask is a must!

  • Client’s will need to wear a mask at all times.  We want to prevent the spread of COVID-19.One of the biggest questions we have been receiving regarding the use of face masks while exercising is:
    • “Is it safe to perform cardiovascular exercises while wearing a face mask?”
  • While our team understands that it is not necessarily comfortable, it is important due to the heavy breathing during cardio to keep all of those around you safe.
  • If you begin to feel short of breath and/or dizzy, please take a short break to regroup. Please be extra sensitive if you have any cardiac and/or respiratory issues.
  • Our Doctors of Physical Therapy and Personal Trainers are here for you and available to help with monitoring.

Screening

  • Everyone who enters any of our facilities is being screened to reduce any risk.
  • Anyone with questionable findings during the screen will not be permitted to perform on-site physical activity that day. Better to play it safe!

Sanitization

  • We are asking our fitness members to wipe down any and all fitness equipment/machines that they’ve used/touched.
  • We are ensuring that all equipment and therapeutic areas are being disinfected after each use and between clients.
  • All high touch surfaces, common areas, entry and exit doors are being disinfected at least once every hour.
  • We have enhanced our employee’s hand washing policy.
  • We have enhanced the frequency of our professional cleaning services which perform full-facility cleaning during off-hours.
  • We are encouraging all patients to bring their own water, as all community water fountain use will be temporarily off-limits.

Capacity limitations

  • Per Gov. Phil Murphy, our current max capacity in the facility is 25 people at any given time. Therefore, we are asking that you limit your workout to one hour for the time being. We appreciate your patience while you wait.

Practice social distancing

  • Please remember to stay a safe distance (at least 6 feet) from other fitness enthusiasts. Let’s all be as safe as possible.

Locker rooms & drinking fountain

  • Please bring a water bottle with you! At this time, our drinking fountain and showers are currently marked “out of service” until further notice.

For any fitness related questions, please email Lisa at LWHITE@BREAKTHRUPT.COM

The Importance of Regular Wellness Checkups

August is National Wellness Month, the perfect time to focus on personal health and investing in yourself. All too often, busy and hectic schedules cause us to put our own health on the back burner until we end up with chronic aches and pains, stress and anxiety, poor sleep, or illness. When we finally do go to the doctor, the remedy for such issues can be expensive and time-consuming, causing even more stress.

On the other hand, scheduling regular wellness exams can help to ease the burdens these issues have on us, or even prevent them in the first place. Not only can doctors get an idea of how a person’s body is functioning with basic screenings and blood tests, but they can also help with stress, anxiety, or sleep issues. The earlier any problems are detected, the better the chances are that we can reduce or prevent chronic health conditions.

– General exam: At this exam, your practitioner will perform preventive care, review your health history, and perform any physical examination procedures necessary based on your gender, age, and information gathered in the clinical history. Lab or diagnostic tests may be ordered.

– Eye exam: You’ll be asked about your medical history and any vision problems you might be experiencing. Several different tests may be performed during the eye exam which are designed to check your vision and to examine the appearance and function of all parts of your eyes.

– Skin exam: Having your skin checked by a dermatologist is extremely important for the early detection of skin cancer. Ideally, a skin check should be performed each year. A dermatologist can also identify any other potentially problematic skin conditions.

– Dental exam: Regular dental exams are a critical part of preventive health care.
During a dental exam, the dentist or hygienist will clean your teeth and check for cavities and gum disease as well as evaluate your risk of developing other oral problems. A dental exam might also include dental X-rays (radiographs) or other diagnostic procedures.

In addition to these traditional exams, it is a great idea to get a Physical Therapy Wellness Assessment. At Breakthru Physical Therapy, we believe that everyone should have their joints, muscles, and movement patterns assessed regularly to ensure continued physical health. That is why we have launched a campaign to promote a lifetime of pain free movement by offering wellness screens to members of our community!

During your assessment, one of our skilled therapists will:
– Take a complete musculoskeletal history and learn about your goals.
– Perform a movement screen and selected physical tests to see what is working well and what needs some help.
– Develop a plan to improve any areas of concern and help you achieve your goals.

When performed consistently Pilates promotes:
– Inner physical awareness
– Improved postural alignment
– Increased flexibility, core strength, stabilization, and stamina
– Enhances coordination, balance, and agility
