Chronic Disease Management
There's no sugarcoating it: chronic diseases are a major problem in the United States. According to the CDC, 1 in every 3 adults in the US has at least one chronic disease, and four out of ten have two or more. Not only are chronic diseases responsible for a large portion of deaths each year (nearly three-quarters of all deaths in the US) but they also take a huge toll on patients' quality of life. Fortunately, chronic diseases are manageable. With some professional healthcare advice and dedication, you will be able to manage your chronic disease. The H2 Health family of clinics provides you both!
Chronic diseases include conditions like heart disease, stroke symptoms, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, and even long COVID. Chronic diseases can cause pain, disability, and emotional distress, among other things. They can also lead to an increased risk of other health problems, such as depression and anxiety. We work with many patients on managing their symptoms and living a healthier lifestyle through outpatient therapy.
CHRONIC CONDITIONS WE TREAT
People with disabilities deserve special evaluation and care. This includes people with previous history of a serious accident or trauma, or any other debilitating disabilities. Our therapists are dedicated in developing plans to reduce pain and discomfort and increase the quality of life of many patients.
Cardiovascular problems are the leading cause of death for people over 50 years. We follow the protocols to monitor vital signs, oversee medication results, and communicate effectively with your team of doctors to ensure you reach your rehabilitation goals! We also address any deconditioning to improve symptoms of chronic diseases such as congestive heart failure.
Our Breaking Barriers program is an innovative approach to improving skin integrity and insulin absorption rates for diabetic patients. We include soft tissue mobilization, mobility and flexibility therapeutic interventions, and healthy lifestyle tips and education to improve overall health.

While patients work on regaining strength and endurance after suffering physical symptoms of COVID-19, our therapists can also combat the brain fog often seen after initial COVID-19 symptoms subside. We
start with easy activities and move to more difficult tasks just like with therapeutic activities.
- Creative Home Exercises: Word find puzzles, Sudoku, and jigsaw puzzles help combat brain fog.
- In Therapy Tasks: Breathing exercises while performing multitasking activities (i.e. counting by two’s) or ask you simple questions like the date, president, surrounding cities, etc. while completing multi-extremity activity
