Club Communication

Keeping Healthy in Cold and Flu Season
With our medical advisors, we have been working on the best way to handle the Covid19 and strong influenza season. While there is a lot of talk about Covid19, it is important to put things in perspective and not panic.  Covid19 does have a higher mortality rate than the traditional flu but is still much lower than other viruses like SARS, and Covid19 seems to have more mortality consequences for those with respiratory challenges.  We will see many cases of Covid19 in our community, just like we have seen many cases of the flu. 
 
The single best way to protect yourself is regularly washing your hands with soap for 20 seconds or longer, followed closely by avoiding touching your eyes, nose, ears or mouth. At LSF, we are working hard to ensure the club is as clean as possible: we are deploying extra personnel to disinfect areas such as doorknobs, railings and weights. In addition, we have acquired new cleaning chemicals and equipment to help clean more challenging areas such as children’s toys.  
 
To help maintain as clean an environment as possible, we need your help: please use the wipes we have in all studios and work-out areas to clean anything that you touch.  Please use the hand sanitizer regularly.  Please cover your mouth with your elbow if you need to cough or sneeze.  If you are not feeling well, please refrain from coming to the club.  If you have other thoughts or suggestions on how we can best help keep everyone healthy, please contact us at MemberServices@LakeshoreSF.com.

Imaging – A Closer Look

When we talk about injuries, we often hear of primary care physicians and orthopedic specialists performing imaging in order to assist patients in treating musculoskeletal pain. Imaging can include, but is not limited to, MRIs, X-rays, or CT scans. Although these tests may help feed our curiosity to “look under the hood,” they may not always be the best place to start.

It is important to remember that our bodies are more than a static picture. Positive imaging findings do not always mean pain and pain does not always mean there is structural damage. This topic has been heavily researched and we summarize some of those findings in our most recent blog post this month. To learn more on this topic, go check out our blog at www.lakeshore-pt.com!
