How to Deal with Summer Heat

Heat Exhaustion or Heat Stroke infographic #EncoreRehab

Summer time in the South means lots of heat and humidity! Here are some tips for dealing with the summer heat!

  1. Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids. Do not wait until you are thirsty to start hydrating. A sports drink can help replace lost salt and minerals from sweating.
  2. Stay indoors as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun.
  3. NEVER leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles. NEVER.
  4. Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing that covers as much skin as possible. Protect your face and head with a wide-brimmed hat.
  5. Avoid working outside during the hottest part of the day. Take frequent breaks.
  6. Pay attention to what you eat and drink. Eat less of salty foods and eat more fruits and vegetables. Also smaller, more frequent meals will help.
  7. Seek indoor, air-conditioned activities. If you do not have air conditioning, visit public places with air conditioning like the mall, the library, or restaurants.
  8. Stay tuned to the local forecast on the radio, television, or internet.
  9. Be sure to check on family and friends who do not have air conditioning and may live alone.
  10. Learn the signs of heat stroke and heat exhaustion. Heat-related deaths and illnesses are preventable, but it’s important to identify the warning signs and to react swiftly and appropriately when they arise.

We wish everyone a fun and safe summer!

Rick Googins – Walking and my hip feels great!

Rick Googins is Patient of the Month for #EncoreRehab Long Beach

I couldn’t walk when I first came to Encore. They have given me great exercises and help. Now my hip feels great! Because I had come here for a previous surgery and Encore did a great job helping me, I wanted to come back for rehab after my hip replacement. Karen, Joanna, and Alicia have done a great job in my physical therapy journey. When you come in, you feel welcome and it feels like family.   They have done an incredible job. I will be back in the future.”~Rick Googins, patient
