During the Covid-19 crisis, schedule a virtual Telehealth visit with one of our experienced therapists
Hello Churchill Family!
We want to be sure you feel safe for your physical therapy visits as our community starts moving again. Some of the steps we are taking include frequent washing of tables/equipment/handles, utilization of masks by everyone in the building, adhering to social distancing guidelines, and having our room sanitized daily. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to us. We have returned to the office and seeing limited in-office visits at this time. We are here to help with all your orthopedic concerns!
Here is a round-up of recent content, enjoy!

To Our Churchill Family,
We hope you and your families are well and safe during these very trying times. Above all else, these are the things that are most important.
We wanted to take a moment and thank all of you who have helped us with our telehealth program. Your willingness to allow us continue your care in a new format for everyone just reinforces how wonderful our patients are and how much you trust us. We’ve always known how special our patients are and we truly value and appreciate each of you.
Now that the state is beginning to reopen, we wanted to let you know that we are in the process of reopening the practice and what we are doing to keep everyone safe. We are going to open on a “limited” basis in the beginning. We will have a staggered schedule to ensure no more than 2 therapists and 2 patients in the facility at a time. We have rearranged the equipment to ensure proper social distancing and we have secured masks, face shields and gloves to ensure the risk of exposure is minimized for patients and staff alike. The office is being professionally disinfected and it will continue to be done on a regular basis as well as our own between patient sanitizing procedures. We have also purchased a new air filtration system which filters 99.97% of contaminants to the size of 0.3 microns. This is smaller than the virus particles and is a significant added measure of safety.
We are looking to reopen on Wednesday, May 20. You can call the office at 201-833-1333 or talk to your therapist directly to set up you schedule. We can’t wait to see you all again!!
Yours in good health,
The Churchill Rehab Family
To our patients, both current and future,
In an abundance of caution and concern for your health and well being, as well as that of our team, we are closing our office effective 3/18/20 until further notice. During this time, please check our website, Facebook, and Instagram for important updates. If, however, you are in significant pain, we will make arrangements to see you in the office to try to remedy your pain. You may also schedule a “Telehealth” visit with one of our experienced therapists. “Telehealth” visits can be scheduled on our website. Please call or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or health concerns.
Thank you and stay safe.
The Churchill Orthopedic Rehab team.
The Churchill Orthopedic Rehabilitation team celebrated its 15 year anniversary on April 15, 2018. We were joined by doctors, past and present patients, friends and family, members of the community, and even a magician! Thank you to all who have been a part of our journey.
Poor sleep has become a prevalent issue that the US Centers for Disease Control, “…has designated insufficient sleep as a public health problem” (PTinMotion 2018). We can do all the exercises in physical therapy 3x per week, complete the home exercise program to get better, eat all the right foods to be healthy, drinking water to stay hydrated, but it can all go to waste if we are not giving our body the hours needed to recover.

In the last blog, we talked about the major types of commercial insurance (Please see the previous blog). In this edition, I’d like to explain the differences one would encounter in physical therapy provided by an ‘out-of-network facility’ (OON) compared to the services one would receive in an ‘in-network facility’ (IN).
For most of us health insurance is a bit of an alphabetical maze. Generally, we have health insurance coverage offered by our, or our spouse’s, employer. The employer is charged a monthly premium by the insurance company for the coverage, and you usually repay a certain percentage of this premium to your employer. This amount is automatically deducted from your paycheck. Over the past 10 years or more, these amounts have been steadily increasing
There are many varieties of health insurance premiums on the market today, but they generally fall into one of two categories.
