What is wellness? The Global Wellness Institute defines it as "the active pursuit of activities, choices, and lifestyles that lead to a state of 'holistic health'." We can help you get started on your journey to "holistic health" here at Spine & Rehab specialists with our very own Wellness Program! We started this program to create a place for individuals who may not be comfortable going to a gym, who don't know much about working out or where to start, who want professional supervision and advice, and anyone who thinks they would benefit from the professional one on one training in a non threatening and clean environment. You don't have to be a patient to join, we welcome anyone who wants to work on themselves and their health goals in a controlled, more personal environment that you can't get at a gym.
Listen in on this episode to hear Harry talk to Joey, one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy, about the ins and outs of our Wellness Program and how it can help you achieve a healthier you.

COVID-19 has impacted everyone in some way throughout 2020 and 2021. At this time, over 100,000 El Pasoans have been infected with the COVID-19 virus. Generally, those who had COVID-19 will struggle with residual symptoms. Many times impairments linger such as fatigue, joint pain, chest pain, muscle pain, headaches, and irregularities in cardiovascular wellness. Physical Therapists have a unique position, as we are trained both in the assessment and rehabilitation of cardiovascular, pulmonary, and musculoskeletal conditions with manifestations like that of the residual effects of COVID-19. Thats is one of the biggest reasons we have put together our new COVID-19 rehab program here at Spine & Rehab Specialists and we are excited to finally put it into use and hopefully help El Pasoans heal and rehabilitate themselves from those nasty COVID-19 after effects. Listen in on this episode as Harry asks Joe about our new program and how his own experience with the virus has helped him get a better understanding of how to help his patients recover and get back to normal.
