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!

Ronald Franks -Healthy again thanks to Encore Rehabilitation-Citronelle

Ronald Franks is walking again thanks to his determination and the Physical Therapists at Encore Rehabilitation-Citronelle #EncoreRehab

My name is Ronald Franks. I have worked for Clarke Washington EMC as a lineman for 25 years. I had a bad accident and didn’t think I would be able to walk again until I heard about Encore Rehabilitation. I have never seen a place like this. You are not a client when you go here; you are family. John, Kendra, and Becky treat you like family. I never missed a day of Physical Therapy in 5 months and it was because of the determination on my part and theirs to get me healthy again. As I write this, I can’t help but cry because without them, I wouldn’t be here today. I have nothing but respect for Encore and the people that work there. I can truly say I have met  Superman and Superwoman in Citronelle, Alabama at Encore Rehabilitation. Thank y’all! Much love and respect for Encore!” ~ Ronald Franks, patient

Thank you, Mr. Franks, for choosing Encore Rehabilitation! It was our pleasure to be your Rehab Provider!
