Physical Therapists can Safely Cycle into the Summer with Tips for Proper Bike Fit

Author Travel Force Staffing | 06.06 | Category Allied Healthcare, How to Tips, Physical Therapist Jobs, Physical Therapy

It never hurts to review the basics, especially when they can help patients who bike learn to prevent pain and injury, increase efficiency and eliminate discomfort. For PTs who work in physical therapy jobs that emphasize sports medicine, it’s part of the daily routine to help patients identify functional goals, i.e. endurance OR speed and performance.

Posture tips for making the most out of every bicycling work-out include these three basics: 1) Changing hand position on handlebars frequently 2) Maintaining a controlled but relaxed grip on the handlebars and 3) Understanding the importance of back strength.

These fundamentals from the APTA can help with proper bike fit:

  • Trunk positioning is a crucial part of proper bike fit. The recreational rider’s trunk should be positioned **40 to 80 degrees from horizontal; the shoulder angle between 80 and 90 degrees.
  • Knee to Pedal positioning is ideal when it is **as close to 35 degrees as possible. This will ensure better function, with less stress to the knee. For the recreational biker, knee to pedal angle should be 35 to 40 degrees; for the road cyclist, therapists recommend an angle of **30 to 35 degrees.road cyclist
  • Foot to Pedal positioning should ensure that **the ball of the foot is placed over the pedal spindle for the best leverage, comfort, and efficiency; a stiff-soled shoe is best for comfort and performance. The optimal goal of revolutions per minute when peddling is between **80 and 90.
  • Handlebar positioning **affects hand, shoulder, neck, and back comfort. The higher the handlebars, the more weight will be placed on the saddle. Taller cyclists should have lower handlebars in relation to the height of the seat. Road cyclists should position their hands approximately 2 centimeters wider than the shoulders for optimal peddling, efficiency and aerodynamics.
  • Seat positioning can make or break proper bike fit. **If you are sliding too far forward, that means too much weight is being placed on your hands, arms, and lower back. If the seat is tilted backwards then you may place undue strain on your lower back. The seat should also be a comfortable distance from the handlebars. If it is too close then extra weight will be placed on the mid-back and arms; too far away and extra strain will be placed on the lower back and neck.

Therapists Can Help Outfit the Bike and Cyclist: Helmets should feature tight traps to prevent slipping and bear the marking of “Snell Certified” or “Meets ANS12904 standard”. A white light on the front of the bike, red reflector or light on rear, and orange flag fastened to the back of your bike increases visibility. Softer handlebar tape and shock absorbers for the seat post and front fork are also worth inquiring about at the local bike shop!

New Physical Therapy Techniques That Greatly Help Our Veterans

Author Travel Force Staffing | 05.22 | Category Healthcare Industry Trends, Physical Therapy, Therapy Jobs, Travel Therapist

This Memorial Day, as healthcare professionals join the nation in recognizing veterans and those on active duty, it’s important to consider that for all patients—particularly Vets—mental anguish and physical pain are often connected. Some physical therapists are bridging this gap via use of targeted therapies that specifically address Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Travel therapists in Florida will recognize the James A. Hailey Veterans Administration Hospital as a forerunner in treating PTSD. The facility, located in Tampa, recently celebrated its grand opening in April 2014. The rehab hospital is forging new concepts in allied healthcare for Vets, such as units categorized as “neighborhoods”, each with a military-inspired name. A few examples of different floors’ names in this facility include Duty, Patriot, Valor, Motivation, Bravery, Honor and not least of all, Courage! A personal memorabilia display and outward facing windows that emit restorative natural light, round out this new rehab hospital, identifying it as a first stop for Florida veterans in need of top notch care.

The therapies trending in VA hospitals are impacting physical therapy careers in many healthcare settings. For PTSD, some therapists are using a multi-disciplinary team approach, wherein the rehab team is made up of physical therapists, as well as mental health professionals. The team treats the condition as a “whole body disease” that affects patients on multiple levels.

This is part of a “**Habitual Therapy Technique”, gaining traction among patients with PTSD. The idea is to get the patient to do things over and over, so that he or she achieves “somatization of pain”. This technique supposedly helps the patient mentally deal with trauma by somatizing pain in different parts of the body; during treatment, and with targeted exercise prescribed by the physical therapist, the patient eventually gets past the physical pain: Endorphins kick in, the joints are lubricated and the patient enjoys a speedier recovery, thanks to the steady regimen of exercise enforced by the PT.

Goal List for Physical Therapists Treating Vets

This Memorial Day, strengthen your goals for patients who served or are serving in the military. These are just a few of the ways PTs can help Vets transition, more smoothly, from life in the hospital to life as a happy and healthy civilian.

  • Get them back on a regular physical workout schedule
  • Become more effective at diagnosing and picking up on the nuances of PTSD
  • Take the patient from a targeted exercise plan into painless full-body workouts
  • Familiarize yourself with tele-rehabilitation services that allow therapists to perform remote TBI evaluation and in-home monitoring
  • Work from the assumption that the body functions as a whole and symptoms in one area of the body may be related to a dysfunction occurring elsewhere

Travel Force Staffing Wishes Our Therapists and Everyone They Treat, a Safe and Happy Memorial Day!

Better Speech and Hearing Month (BSHM) is an Opportune Time to Learn More about the Benefits of Telepractice

Author Travel Force Staffing | 05.01 | Category Healthcare Industry Trends, Speech and Hearing Month - May, Speech Language Pathologist, Video

Every May, The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association makes BSHM resources available on their website, effectively raising awareness about communication disorders and growing need for more speech language pathology and audiology services in the United States; one of the ways this is being accomplished is via telepratice—a topic that ASHA reports on with positivity and optimism in this informative video:

Increasing the availability of SLP services is something that technology achieves everyday via telepractice; this enables the therapist to dial into a patient’s home and meet them wherever they are! It’s a service delivery method that works for any age group. Young patients are motivated by technology-driven therapy sessions, and older patients respond well to therapy via computers, as so many are used to communicating with their children and grandchildren this way.

Breaking Down the Two Major Types of Telepractice

Other terms for “telepractice” may include “teleaudiology”, “telespeech”, and “speech teletherapy”. Speech language pathologists should note the differences between these two types of telepratice:

  • Synchronous: This service delivery method is client/patient interactive and conducted with interactive audio and video connection in real time. This creates an in-person experience similar to that achieved in a face-to-face therapy session. Synchronous services may connect a client/patient or group of clients/patients with a clinician, or they may include consultation between a clinician and a specialist.
  • Asynchronous: This is a “store and forward” service delivery method, wherein images or data are captured and transmitted (i.e., stored and forwarded) for viewing or interpretation by a professional. Examples include transmission of voice clips, audiologic testing results, or outcomes of independent client/patient practice.

SLPs Successfully Providing Teletherapy Are Improving Access and Decreasing Costs for Patients

Many SLPs who practice teletherapy report research outcomes that are equal to face-to-face delivery models, and say that patient satisfaction is high, adding that the method opens new doors in therapy as it promotes more family involvement and easy access to care. More insurance companies, including Medicare agree with the cost-effectiveness and uncompromised quality of telepractice, and provide coverage for these sessions; the only challenge left for SLPs is when patient relationships cross state lines because this means the therapist must seek SLP licensure in multiple states: the state wherein therapy is being provided, and the state where the patient is receiving it.  The ASHAsphere blog has written extensively on a need for SLP license portability, as more schools, nursing homes and hospitals experience shortages in audiology and speech pathology services.

There is No Better Time than “Better Speech and Hearing Month” to Celebrate Technological Advances for SLPs!

This May, may you continue to excel in speech language pathology jobs during BSHM Month and throughout the rest of the year. When it comes to restoring the gift of communication to your patients, only highly trained SLPs deliver the articulation, language. and fluency necessary to succeed.

What Physical Therapists and Their Patients Should Know About Treadmill Desking

Author Travel Force Staffing | 04.10 | Category Gadgets, Healthcare Industry Trends, Physical Therapy, Product Reviews, Therapy Jobs, Video

New medical documentation software allows allied healthcare professionals to sit in front of a computer and get a lot done; the downside to that is physical therapists experiencing, first-hand, what patients with sitting-induced neck and back pain go through. The treadmill desk is a trending solution for sedentary workers who wish to become more active ones, reaping the health benefits along the way.

The concept of the treadmill desk was born when **Dr. James Levine, an endocrinologist at the Mayo Clinic, developed it as part of his work with non-exercise activity thermogenesis, constructing a “treadmill desk” by placing a bedside hospital tray over a simple treadmill. In 1996, Dr. Seth Roberts, a professor of psychology from UC Berkeley designed the first prototype of the 3 kinds of treadmill desks available today, which are:

  • A desk that is designed to cover a traditional treadmill (example: TrekDesk)
  • Treadmills designed to fit under a standing desk (example: The Rebel Crank-up Desk)
  • Desks fabricated by original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and are a treadmill with desk included (example: LifeSpan)

If You’re Thinking of Recommending Treadmill Desking to a Fellow Physical Therapist or Patient…

Patients expect their physical therapist to be up to date on the latest innovations in ergonomic workspaces, so it never hurts to study the different varieties of treadmill desks out there and recommend one that works for you.  A review of several treadmill desk brands was penned by a Michigan physical therapist who wrote this article that interested PTs can click on to get direct links to treadmill desks manufacturers; costs range widely from $400 to $4,000.

These are a few highlights, assurances and other important things to remember for those just starting out “treadmill desking”:

  • Users can burn an estimated 100-130 calories per hour at speeds slower than 2 miles per hour**
  • Treadmill desks require compliance with the same ergonomic safety standards recommended for any computer desk**
  • The recommended speed for walking on a treadmill while working at a computer is less than 2 miles per hour**
  • Beginners on the TrekDesk are advised to add no more than 15 minutes more walking each day initially.**

Patient Outcomes in Physical and Occupational Therapy Improve with Emerging Technologies like Sway and Jintronix

Author Travel Force Staffing | 03.21 | Category Gadgets, Healthcare Industry Trends, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Product Reviews, Video

It’s exciting when allied healthcare professionals get the chance to work with technologies that let them treat patients remotely, from anywhere! Companies like Jintronix and Sway Medical are offering just that chance, by providing virtual rehabilitation platforms or smartphone apps that help make therapy possible from your living room, an airport, your office—basically anywhere.

Last fall Sway released a customizable version of their FDA approved iPhone app that assesses postural sway and concussion risk. In short, Sway provides balance testing, sideline evaluations of a head injury, orthopedic injury screening, recovery tracking and fatigue monitoring—watch this “How does Sway work” video to learn more:

 

Why Sway is Making Therapists Swoon

The product is saving allied healthcare providers big money as an alternative to costly force platforms.  Developed by Chase Curtiss, a clinical exercise physiologist, Sway Balance is of considerable value to any therapist who works in rehabilitation, sports medicine or fall risk; it’s a go-to app when therapists find themselves outside of the clinic, and in need of a fast, reliable concussion screening. **Healthcare professionals can purchase a yearly subscription to the app for $199 – a fraction of the cost of a typical balance platform. Better yet, the patient-facing app is free to download!

Another Technology Therapists Will Love: Jintronix

Jintronix is also making therapists and patients take note—when, thanks to a powerful software platform, therapy can be done anywhere, via portal and client application: “The Wave”.  The games offered by Jintronix were created by some of the most talented physical therapists and occupational therapists working in allied healthcare today. After taking the company’s **video tour, therapists can appreciate how engaging and fun the virtual environments are for patients. The therapy exercises, done via motion and tracking camera, record patients’ movements in real time; this allows the therapist to maintain a high standard of care as though the patient were right there in the room—and carry on as though the patient never left it! Therapists can review performance metrics online, as well as modify and prescribe treatments accordingly.

PTs and OTs Are Seeing the Gap between Therapy and Technology Shrink, As Potential to Excel in Allied Healthcare Expands!  

It is now possible for occupational and physical therapists to focus more on patient outcomes, as well as provide more streamlined, objective and organized evidence of patient improvements; this is a boon to the PT or OT amassing data that proves just how marketable they are on the healthcare landscape, and how indispensable they are to patients.

What Every Physical Therapist Needs to Know About Obamacare

Author Travel Force Staffing | 02.28 | Category Allied Healthcare, Education, Healthcare Industry Trends, Physical Therapist Education

A common goal among healthcare professionals is in sync with what the patient population wants, too: improved access to medical services and affordable coverage for every American. Now that healthcare reform, “Obamacare” is underway, physical therapists are doing what they can to expedite the more positive measures that Mr. Obama’s plan brings to allied healthcare, like expanded Medicare benefits and the ability to treat and evaluate without a referral from an MD.

The Positives of Obamacare

Progress is being made by state legislators, broadening physical therapy options for Americans from coast to coast. To date, these are healthcare reform goals that many allied healthcare professionals fully support and try to increase public awareness of:

  • More open access to physical therapy providers: 48 states in the U.S. no longer require patients to seek a referral from a medical doctorpositives list for Obama healthcacre before coming to a physical therapist for an evaluation. 44 U.S. States, including Washington D.C. allow PTs to evaluate AND treat patients without referrals.
  • Strong Support of Legislation for Medicare Access to Rehabilitation Services: these laws will make physical therapy a mandated benefit under Medicare, NOT just an option. This legislation will also repeal limits on outpatient therapy, by lifting restrictive caps on treatment costs and long 2-year waiting periods. Therapists strive as well, for reform of the Medicare physical fee schedule.
  • Stronger support of “comparative effectiveness research”: this can prove a physical therapist’s intervention is, in some cases, just as effective as surgery, with less risk posed to the patient and a shorter recovery period.
  • Make physical therapy available to poor patient populations: This can be achieved, in part, by including PTs in programs that expand access in Indian reservations.
  • Increase access to federal scholarships and loan initiatives for physical therapists, many of whom have trained in accordance with the APTA’s Vision 2020 goal.

Travel Force Staffing: Where Supply Meets Demand

Now that so many new Americans qualify for medical benefits and have entered the healthcare marketplace, supply must meet the demand. The Baby Boomers have reached retirement age, and the nation has seen cases of chronic disease, 75% of total healthcare costs, rise along with the aging population. Only a highly trained medical professional is prepared to meet these kinds of challenges.

Cue the well-educated PT! Physical therapy offers an alternative to the surgery and prescription drugs many patients may need; a PT’s rigorous training, accompanied by experience in an advanced clinical setting, prepares therapists to meet specific patient needs. An excellent place to build an allied health professional’s resume is at an experienced healthcare staffing agency that encourages “Travelers” to work in diverse settings that exercise every muscle, so to speak, in their repertoire of advanced clinical skills. PTs, PTAs, occupational therapists, and speech language pathologists grow their skill sets in therapy jobs that contract with the nation’s top, award winning healthcare employers.

Experienced Staffing Agencies are Ideal for More Than Just Physical Therapists

Travel Force Staffing supports Graduate Medical Education (GME), which includes availability of clinical fellowship programs. We are proud to offer speech language pathologists CFY opportunities for recent graduates that are going places! Leaders in allied healthcare are looking to improve patient outcomes. Some think healthcare reform puts us on the right track. Leave us a comment and tell us what YOU think!

Keep Your Therapy Practice Revenue Flowing with a Smooth ICD-10 Conversion

Author Travel Force Staffing | 02.04 | Category Career Tips, Healthcare Industry Trends

After a 1-year delay it appears to be full speed ahead with the ICD-10 conversion for medical providers nationwide. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services appear to be standing firm on the October 1, 2014 deadline for conversion. The transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 is required by all health facilities covered by the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA) including occupational and physical therapy facilities.

The changes to the coding system are significant and getting it right is important to keeping revenue and reimbursement flowing post conversion.

How to keep Therapy Revenue Flowing during Conversion

ICD-10 Conversion checklist:

  • Develop an implementation strategy complete with timeline and budget.
  • Prepare a list of all documentation that you currently record ICD-10 diagnosis codes. Medical forms, ICD-10 Conversion planningclinical documentation, computer and billing systems, EHR, reimbursement claims, patient eligibility, payer authorization, and quality reporting are a good place to start.
  • Convert paper and electronic forms to conform to the longer, alphanumeric ICD-10 codes which provide greater specificity for patient diagnosis.
  • Collaborate with all relevant software vendors and payors such as billing services, clearinghouses, and therapy practice management systems to coordinate software compatibility testing.
  • Analyze, document, and implement changes to your practice work flow and business processes.
  • Set up staff training sessions. All staff that work with the current ICD-9 system must be trained on the ICD-10, such as occupational and physical therapists, front desk staff, and coding/billing staff.
  • Make arrangements for supplemental staffing. Even with all the planning and testing there are likely to be business disruptions during conversion. In fact, many conversion experts advise to expect multiple disruptions. But while the conversion is taking place, patients still need to be attended to in a compassionate and customer-focused manner. During your conversion, you can ensure your patients receive the quality treatments they’ve come to expect through the temporary staffing of physical and occupational therapists.

Travel Force staffs prestigious facilities nationwide including Outpatient Centers, Rehab Centers, hospitals and skilled nursing facilities with experienced therapists in careers where quality patient care matters most. Our fully-online staffing program is ideal for staffing managers who have to plan therapy jobs for leave, expansion, census fluctuations, vacations, unit openings and filling difficult positions. Travel Force Staffing has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval since 2005.

It’s never too early to arrange for temporary staffing in preparation for ICD-10 conversion and there is no charge to post a therapy job. In fact, the earlier you post, the more time you have to make the best selection for your facility. You can speak to a therapy recruitment specialist at 800-617-0608 for more information.
