This year is almost half way over, so if one of your New Year’s Resolutions was to invest in new equipment and products for your office, now’s the time! It’s obviously important to spend your resources wisely, which is why we’ve compiled a list of items that can help you refresh your facility for under $250.
Retail Section Must-Haves: Pillows, Rehabilitation Supplies and Topical Analgesics
Providing your patients with a well-stocked retail section is a win/win – they’ll have easy access to products that help them achieve their health and fitness goals and you’ll ensure they get the product from a trusted source. Pillows, rehabilitation supplies and topical analgesics are examples of great items to have on hand. Because you know your patients better than most, they’ll appreciate your advice and recommendations. They’ll also know where to go when they’d like to purchase more, creating a very loyal customer along the way.
Having a wide variety of equipment related to foam rolling and self myofascial release allows you and your staff to customize treatment based on your patient’s condition. Using the proper equipment will also help promote improvements in balance, increase stability and flexibility and relieve tension. Check out the Hyperice Vyper, which offers three vibration settings and delivers effective relief from pain, stiffness and immobility.
Whether you’re using kinesiology tape for pain relief, removal of swelling, to speed up the recovery process or to support injured muscles and/or joints – you most likely use a lot of it! So stocking up is always a good idea, because you obviously never want to run out. Body Sport offers a high-quality kinesiology tape solution…at a great price.
Strength and Resistance Equipment
When you upgrade or add to your collection of dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls or weighted bars, your patients will take notice. If you always seem to have more patients in your rehab area than equipment or if it is time to replace your current sets, now’s the perfect time to make the investment!
Investing in your own skill set and knowledge is always a smart move. Purchase Sue Falsone: The Shoulder or Sue Falsone: The Cervical Thoracic Junction to learn from one the best and gain new skills and pearls which will in turn, help both you and your patients.
If paraffin therapy isn’t a service you currently offer, certainly check out the benefits! Paraffin therapy is used for the treatment of arthritis pain and stiffness, inflammation, strains, muscle spasms and more. Your patients won’t be able to resist the soothing, warming, relaxing paraffin hot wax treatments for hands or feet.
