Maintaining Your Rehab During The Coronavirus Pandemic

Updated Last: Monday, June 1, 2020, 9:00 Am

We have some exciting news! We are launching a series of training programs designed to keep you strong and injury resilient during and after training. The first program will be for marathon runners of varying experience. Our team will help you avoid overtraining, shatter previous mile times and reach PRs, conquer hills, improve your running economy, and finish the race stronger than ever before!

Below are brief descriptions of the three tiers. All sessions are virtual and in-person sessions are subject to an additional fee. Email us with questions about this specific program at running@cynergypt.com.

Competitor:

This tier will include an assessment from a board-certified physical therapist who will assess your running mechanics and provide areas of improvement through a 30-minute Zoom session and provide a one month strengthening program to address your weaknesses. You will also have follow-up emails to check the progress you have made.

Elite:

In addition to the Competitor benefits, you will also have a customized load management program which addresses factors such as recovery, load and stress management to help you build a strong body and develop the marathon mindset to get you ready for race day. This tier also includes recovery integration through the use of Pilates, yoga, stretching, relaxation, and meditation.

Champion:

This tier includes both the competitor and elite benefits, as well as 10 one-on-one sessions with your physical therapist who will help guide you through your marathon process and a speed program to improve your marathon time.

Hand Therapy Week 2020 (June 1-7) is a national celebration of hand therapy and therapists! It aims to highlight and educate everyone on the importance and benefits of hand therapy.

If you have received hand therapy at Cynergy, we would love for you to share what makes hand therapy at Cynergy so great! We’ve attached a flyer that you can use to share your experience with us! Please feel free to use it (or any paper you have, if you don’t have access to a printer) and send us a photo of yourself with your message! We’ll be sharing submissions on social media to celebrate Hand Therapy Week!

Make sure to follow us on our instagrams (@cynergyptnyc and @cynergyupperextremity) to learn more about our occupational therapists and CHTs (certified hand therapists) and their dedication to their patients!

Dear Cynergy Community,

It’s official! We’ve been back for a whole week! It’s been great being back and getting to see some of you in the office. Thank you for trusting us with your care and safety during this unprecedented time. Below are some photos of our therapists seeing patients in-person and on Telehealth this week. Hopefully they will help you envision yourself here with us!

We want patients to know what to expect when they’re in the office. As part of our commitment to keeping our community safe, we will be screening both patients and staff before and upon arrival. At the entrance of all our practices, providers, staff, and patients will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and given a temperature check.

Dear Cynergy Community,

As you all know, New York City will remain on pause for non-essential workers through June 13th. Physical and occupational therapists are essential workers and as such, we will be seeing patients in-office on staggered schedules to enforce crowd control.

We want patients to know what to expect when they’re in the office. As part of our commitment to keeping our community safe, we will be screening both patients and staff before and upon arrival. At the entrance of all our practices, providers, staff, and patients will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and given a temperature check.

Below is an example of the phone pre-screen patients can expect to experience before being scheduled for an in-office appointment:

Dear Cynergy Community,

We hope everyone is doing well and staying safe! We have been fortunate to keep our team in place until now. We are continuing to serve our patients, albeit at a smaller scale. Adjusting to our lives while sheltering in place is challenging yet rewarding. It has helped us push the envelope creatively, with resources, and establishing and maintaining a sense of normalcy.

Because it can be stressful and difficult to stay active and sane during these unprecedented times, our team is offering online exercise classes specifically designed to get you moving at home! Our hope is that these classes offer you and your loved ones the opportunity to release stress, boost your immune system, and make you stronger. Each class is donation-based and offered on Zoom or Instagram Live. The suggested donation is $10/class through our PayPal account. If you are able to help, please do so by using the paypal link listed below. As always, thank you for your support and generosity!

Dear Cynergy Community,

We hope everyone is staying healthy! Cynergy is 100% committed to your rehab and as such there are new found opportunities to get you back to your optimal health. While Physical and Occupational Therapists have been deemed essential workers, we have collectively decided to keep the offices closed and open only for specific requested post op care and splint needs until at least April 24th.

We are thrilled to share that TeleHealth sessions have been a huge success these last 2 weeks! Patients are raving about our dynamic and talented therapists’ Zoom sessions. These sessions are a much needed respite from working at home. We’ve been able to perform ergonomic assessments through HIPAA-compliant Zoom to ensure that our patient’s workstations at home are set-up adequately, and perform evaluations and treatment sessions to help you meet your goals.

Additionally, #TEAMCYNERGY has created a series of videos to inspire you to continue to move and stay healthy! We’ve included the first of many videos below, to get you moving. Subscribe to our Youtube channel to easily access more videos as we will be adding content regularly in the coming weeks!

As always, please feel free to reach out to our team with questions or concerns or if you’d like to schedule a TeleHealth session, call our office.

Stay healthy,

Cynthia Gormezano, PT, MPT, Founder, CEO

Dear Cherished Patients,

Your health and safety continues to be our highest priority. Given the developments in the Coronavirus pandemic, we are transitioning all appointments at this time to a telehealth platform beginning Thursday, March 18th. Starting tomorrow our Midtown West and Grand Central offices will be closed and our Chelsea, Midtown East and Financial District offices will close on Thursday, March 19th.

Our Midtown West office will close tomorrow, but our Chelsea, Midtown East, and Financial District locations will be open tomorrow. All sessions will be then be conducted virtually over Zoom. While we are not able to provide manual treatment, we are able to continue to provide you with high-quality care by providing assessment, education, exercise instruction, and ergonomic recommendations, as everyone is now working from their home desk, couch or bed. This allows us to provide you with continuity of care so that we may continue to work towards your health, well-being and goals.

All current appointments are being kept as they are currently scheduled, unless we hear otherwise from you. Information on access to the Zoom platform and insurance coverage will be provided soon. We plan on reopening the offices on April 1 and will be in contact with you as things continue to develop in our resilient city.

We will continue to update you on any changes as the situation evolves. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to adapt our care to your needs.

Stay calm and Purel-on!

Best wishes for health and strength to all,

Team Cynergy

At this time, all Cynergy Physical Therapy locations remain open for business.

At Cynergy Physical Therapy, the health and well-being of our patients, staff and communities is our first priority each and every day. We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and are committed to being responsive to the needs of our patients and associates as the situation evolves. We are monitoring the information not only from the CDC and W.H.O. but from the New York State Department of Health and the City Department of Health, as well. We will continue to do so and make decisions as the situation evolves.

Currently, Cynergy is positioned to be able to treat all our patients in keeping with the social distancing recommendations as we use our private treatment rooms to keep barriers between patients and maintain a private and clean environment.

Our therapists have been vigilantly wiping down all surfaces between sessions, our front desk staff have been wiping down exposed surfaces every hour with disinfectant and we are hand washing between each patient along with using hand sanitizer.

While we are currently maintaining our regular operations, our offices are prepared to swiftly adapt in order to continue to provide the highest quality care to our patients.

With that in mind, we will now incorporate telehealth sessions into how we treat our patients. We are proud to now expand our services to anyone who feels more comfortable using the telehealth platform. You can use a phone or tablet to access the Zoom technology, which is HIPAA compliant. Please call the office and speak to one of our lovely patient liaisons to find out if this is something that could work with your insurance! While we can’t do any manual therapy over telehealth, we can continue to teach and guide you through exercise programs, educate you on your home exercises, guide you through neuromuscular re-education activities and many other tools we use throughout our sessions.
Please feel free to reach out to any member of our team with any questions or concerns you may have and remember we are here to help you get better.

Wishing everyone strength and health,

Team Cynergy
