Overall wellness is directly linked to your level of activity. It’s well documented that those of us who exercise regularly get better quality sleep, have more energy and are more alert during the day. The average adult should be exercising a recommended 150 minutes each week. Children should be getting at least 60 minutes of exercise daily.
Keeping active is often difficult: busy schedules and demanding jobs limit our time and zap our energy, lingering injuries make it hard to get motivated. Those old aches and pains make us dread exercise for fear of continued discomfort, re-injury, or developing a new malady. It's wonder then why many of us put the most valuable asset for longevity low on the priority list.
To break the inactivity habit, start from the ground up and get your feet in order. Make sure you have the appropriate sneakers, socks, bracing, and insoles. Do yourself a favor and get your feet and gear evaluated by a podiatrist. A podiatrist will be able to better tailor your equipment and exercise needs to suit your specific athletic profile and goals. Don’t allow issues like a lingering tendinitis, a bunion deformity, or even an ingrown toenail to prevent you from getting the exercise you need.
Our doctors manage all of these problems and more on a daily basis. In addition to thorough evaluations by highly trained doctors and staff, our patients have access to the best available diagnostic and treatment methods. In office diagnostics that include live fluoroscopy, ultrasound, x-rays, and 3D foot scanning ensure fast and accurate diagnosis and treatment.
So if you are looking to get your feet and your health back on track make an appointment today for a foot evaluation at Advanced Podiatry. We will keep you active in the game of life.
Advanced Podiatry has enrolled with UMA to schedule appointments for patients that are self pay. UMA is better known as "hassle-free healthcare," also known as Urgent Medical access. UMA Health is an insurance free platform that allows patients to bypass insurance, schedule an appointment and pay for their visit - before ever walking through the door! It's the quickest, easiest way to schedule a doctor's visit. Here's a link tot: umahealth.com.
The concept was actually conceived by the #1 ranked podiatrist in the U.S. by RateMDs.com, Dr. Pedram Hendizadeh.
UMA's goal is to help patients with high deductible insurance plans or who have no insurance coverage determine the cost of care prior to the visit. When patients book an appointment through UMA, they are able to:
- Find the best prices for doctor visits and earn reward dollars
- Bypass insurance and know exactly what they're paying (no surprise bills months later!)
- Find quality care in the New York area
- Book an appointment with just a few taps
- Have on-demand care when you need it the most
Many patients with high deductible insurance plans are unaware of what their medical costs prior to their medical evaluation. This leads to confusion and frustration when they receive their bills months later in the mail.
How long has UMA been around? The idea for UMA has been in the seed since January 2016. UMA has just launched in March of 2017, with the platform growing rapidly.
The current healthcare system is broken and unsustainable. UMA Health is here to help.
