Diabetic Polyneuropathy and PhysicalTherapy

Posted in Physical Therapy Clifton NJ

img

Disease Control, there were nearly 19 million people with a diagnosis of diabetes in 2011. Diabetes is a chronic disease in which the body’s glucose levels are higher than normal, resulting from the body’s inability to produce and/or use insulin properly. There are several different types of Diabetes, including Type I Diabetes, Type II Diabetes, and Gestational Diabetes.

Complications of Diabetes include heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, polyneuropathy, impaired sensation, blindness, kidney dysfunction, periodontal disease, Diabetic ulcers and other chronic wounds, charcot deformity, lower limb amputations, coma and death.

What is Diabetic Polyneuropathy?

Neuropathy is a pathological change of the nerves. Diabetic polyneuropathy is a type of neuropathy that is associated with diabetes mellitus. It is thought to occur as the result of vascular changes experienced by those with diabetes. There are many types of diabetic polyneuropathy, but general signs and symptoms of diabetic polyneuropathy include:

  • A burning sensation in the hands and/or feet
  • Numbness and/or tingling in the extremities
  • Abnormal sensation
  • Muscle weakness
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Dizziness
  • Vision changes

Sensorimotor polyneuropathy affects the body’s sensory and motor apparatuses. It is marked by a “sock and glove” pattern of sensory changes that affects the toes first, then advances proximally up the foot and leg. Symptoms include numbness, tingling, abnormal sensation, decreased sensation, and/or pain. The pain, which often occurs at night, is described as dull, achy, burning, or prickly. As a result of the decreased sensation caused by neuropathy, people with diabetes are at increased risk for developing ulcers on their feet, as they are unable to feel when they step on sharp objects, develop blisters from ill-fitting shoes, or experience any type of injury to the skin on the bottom of the foot.

Proprioception, or the awareness of one’s body position in space, is also affected by neuropathy, which may lead to decreased balance and resulting falls. Charcot foot, a degenerative condition that causes fractures to the foot bones and an eventual rocker-bottom deformity, is also common among those with diabetic neuropathy.

Autonomic neuropathy causes dysfunction of the body’s autonomic functions. Common signs and symptoms include dizziness upon standing (orthostatic hypotension), arrhythmia, bloating, nausea, diarrhea, and urinary retention, frequency, or incontinence. Cranial neuropathy affects the cranial nerves, primarily those responsible for eye movements.

Treatment of Diabetic Polyneuropathy

There are many treatment options for patients with diabetic polyneuropathy. While the neuropathy itself is a progressive condition, the symptoms and their resulting functional impairments can be treated.

Drugs are primarily prescribed to relieve the pain caused by neuropathy. These drugs include tricyclic antidepressants, serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, anti-epileptic drugs, and analgesics.

Physical therapy helps to maintain or regain the functional status of those with diabetic polyneuropathy, as it helps with pain control, maintaining strength and balance, and prevention and treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. Modalities used in Physical Therapy, primarily electrical stimulation, can assist in pain relief, edema control, and treatment of ulcers. Physical Therapists can also prescribe individualized exercise programs to strengthen weak muscles, regain postural control, and help maintain balance in those with neuropathy. If a patient has a diabetic foot ulcer, a Physical Therapist can perform the wound care, instruct the patient in proper foot care, and recommend appropriate footwear. In the case of a charcot foot or amputation, Physical Therapists perform transfer and gait training to help patients to be able to move themselves within the community as independently as possible. Again, a PT would recommend appropriate footwear, as well as any needed assistive devices such as canes or walkers.

While diabetic polyneuropathy cannot be reversed, those with Diabetes can take steps to prevent or slow its development. Preventative measures include maintaining control of one’s blood glucose levels, attending regular check-ups with an orthopedic or foot surgeon, performing daily foot inspections, wearing proper footwear, and using caution to prevent injury. If someone with Diabetes develops any symptoms of polyneuropathy, he or she should consult a physician as soon as possible.

PT in the Kitchen Physical Therapy Clifton NJ

Posted in Occupational Therapy Rahway NJ, Physical Therapy Clifton NJ

As time passes, people may realize that everyday tasks are becoming more difficult. These everyday tasks may be more difficult as the result of decreased strength, decreased balance, or pain caused by arthritis/degenerative joint disease or other medical conditions. Some of these tasks can be avoided or performed with assistance, but others are necessary to a person’s health and well-being, and if not performed, can lead to a decline in health.

One such task is that of preparing food. Eating nutritious meals on a regular basis helps people to maintain health, to prevent illness, to maintain and/or build strength, and to encourage healing. Approximately 1 in 7 elders is at risk of hunger in the United States(1), due to economic or other reasons. If an older adult is having difficulty functioning in the kitchen, he or she is at risk for malnutrition. Fortunately, Physical Therapy can assist in maintaining or regaining one’s ability to function independently and safely in the kitchen.

Grip strength is important for pulling open the refrigerator door, for opening jars, and for grasping pots, pans, cups, and utensils. A physical or occupational therapist can assess a person’s grip strength, upper extremity strength, and upper extremity range of motion to determine the exact cause of the difficulty with grasping. An individualized program would be developed to address any impairments, and a home program would be assigned. Home exercises to improve grip strength include squeezing a soft object (such as a balled-up sock, a foam ball, or putty) with as much force as possible.

Many kitchen tasks require more general strength, such as lifting and carrying dishes full of food, putting groceries away, and opening and closing heavy oven or refrigerator doors. After a physical therapy assessment, a program would be developed to increase strength in the weak body parts, such as the arms, legs, or trunk.

Balance can affect one’s ability to function in the kitchen, as the process of preparing food and dishes requires reaching, stooping, and turning. A person’s balance can be affected by many factors such as sensation, the vestibular system, decreased response to postural perturbations, or many medications.

A physical therapist would assess balance, taking these factors into consideration before beginning treatment.

A physical or occupational therapist can recommend adaptive equipment to facilitate the preparation and consumption of meals. A non-skid material, such as dycem, could be used to open jars. Additionally, there are devices commonly available in stores to assist in opening jars. Reachers can assist in reaching lightweight objects placed on shelves, or to pick up objects from the floor. Adaptive utensils and dishes are also available to assist in cooking and eating. These include utensils with thick handles to aid in grasping, plate guards to prevent foot from being pushed off the edge of the plate, and cups with the side cut out for the nose to help people avoid having to tip their heads back to drink.

Changes to the kitchen will also help to make food preparation and cleanup safer. By storing frequently-used items at or near counter level, the amount of reaching and stooping will be decreased. Storing lightweight items on shelves will help prevent injury if something falls and will enable use of a reacher. Using a wheeled cart to bring pots, pans and dishes to and from the kitchen will help those who lack the strength and/or balance to carry heavy items between rooms.

If you or someone you know is having difficulty in the kitchen, whether the task is cooking, eating, or washing dishes, consult a Physical or Occupational therapist directly to assess one’s individual impairments and to develop an individualized exercise program. Taking advantage of a program such as Meals on Wheels may help, as well. Regardless of the path one chooses, the importance of nutrition and household safety is paramount.

Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapy Clifton NJ

Posted in Occupational Therapy Rahway NJ

Approximately 13% of children in the United States have been diagnosed with developmental delays. Some developmental delays are associated with diagnoses such as congenital muscular torticollis, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, or autism spectrum disorders, while some children merely display delays in some realms but develop normally in other realms. These delays can be in gross motor skills, fine motor skills, communication, cognition, adaptive/self-help skills and feeding skills.

Fortunately, there are professionals who are specially trained to help children overcome their developmental delays These professionals include pediatric Physical Therapists, pediatric Occupational Therapists, Speech-Language Pathologists, Infant Stimulation Specialists (AKA Early Interventionists), Recreational Therapists, and developmental Optometrists This article will go further into depth regarding the roles of the pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapists.

Pediatric Physical Therapy

Pediatric Physical Therapists have specialized knowledge regarding gross motor skills development. There are many treatment philosophies such as Neuro developmental Treatment, Sensory Integration Approach, or a Functional approach, but all have the ultimate goal of maximizing a child’s functional mobility.

Treatment sessions are specific to each child’s needs and may include stretching, functional strengthening, positioning, providing sensory stimulation, balance training, reflex integration, and functional mobility training. Parent/caregiver training and home program prescription to ensure carryover of skills are also vital components of a PT treatment plan. If necessary for a child, a pediatric PT can prescribe lower extremity braces, plagiocephaly helmets, positioning equipment, and mobility equipment such as wheelchairs, gait trainers, or walkers.

Pediatric PT sessions incorporate equipment such as mats, swings, balls of all sizes, balance beams, benches, chairs, and toys. Sessions can take place in the child’s home, in a clinic, or in the community. Preschoolers and older children can also receive PT services through their school, if they qualify for the service. Playgrounds are always a fun and productive place to hold a PT session because of the ladders, slides, uneven terrain, tunnels, swings, and other amenities that are available in a larger outdoor setting.

Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Pediatric Occupational Therapists have specialized knowledge regarding the development of fine motor skills and adaptive/self-help skills. Some pediatric OT’s have also pursued further training in Sensory Integration and/or feeding.

Occupational therapy treatment sessions are also specific to each child’s needs and may include stretching, functional strengthening, positioning, sensory stimulation, fine motor coordination, grasping skills, pre-writing skills, self-feeding, and self-care. Parent/caregiver training and a home program are also vital to carryover of skills learned in OT. If necessary, a pediatric OT can prescribe or fabricate custom upper extremity splints, positioning devices and/or wheelchairs to promote optimal functional position for all activities of daily living. Self-help aids may also be recommended such as adaptive shoe laces, writing aids and specialized feeding equipment for increased independence.

The child’s environment may also be adapted to meet their needs such as a lower or higher seat in school to increase stability when sitting in the classroom.

Pediatric OT sessions incorporate much of the same equipment that PT’s use, with the addition of more treatment tools specific to what they do. For feeding therapy, OT’s will use foods of different tastes and textures, adaptive dishes and utensils, and tools to provide sensory input to the mouth. For self-help training, OT’s will use tools such as a fastening board to practice lacing, buttoning, zipping and dress up clothing to practice taking clothes on and off. For pre-writing and other school-related skills, OT’s will use writing instruments of varying lengths and thicknesses, adaptive scissors, and slanted writing surfaces.

Occupational Therapy sessions can take place in the child’s home, in a clinic, or in the community. Occupational Therapy is very common in the schools for children in special education who need help with school-related tasks that involve writing, cutting, gluing, and self-care.

Non-Developmental Therapy

Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapists can also be found in hospitals, in private outpatient clinics, and in long-term care settings. These therapists work primarily to rehabilitate children from illness or injury, but this rehabilitation will often overlap with developmental therapy. These therapists often work with children who have cancer, long-term chronic illness, post-injury, or orthopedic diagnoses such as juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

Prognosis

Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapists work hard to ensure that children can function to the best of their ability. Children frequently “graduate” from therapy as their skills become age-appropriate, but oftentimes, the child’s diagnosis can be a limiting factor. In cases such as these, therapists will also play a role in ensuring that these children do not decline in function, or in the case of degenerative diseases, to slow the decline in function. Regardless of the ultimate outcome, Physical and Occupational Therapy for children is crucial to ensure that their full potential is met.

PT and Fall Prevention: Physical Therapy Clifton NJ

Posted in Occupational Therapy Rahway NJ, Physical Therapy Clifton NJ

According to the Centers for Disease Control one out of three people over the age of 65 fall each year. Among older adults aged 65 and over, falls are the leading cause of accidental death, nonfatal injuries, and trauma-related hospitalizations. People over the age of 75 have the highest rate of non-fatal fall episodes of all age groups.

Falls are also a major reason that seniors find themselves no longer able to live independently.

Falls can result in cuts, scrapes, bruises, broken bones, head injuries, and/or death. Even without an injury, a fall can cause an older adult to develop a fear of falling, which can be debilitating and cause a person to limit physical activity and social interaction to avoid the potential for falls.
Fortunately, many falls can be prevented with the help of a Physical Therapist.

Physical therapy is a health profession that strives to maximize a person’s mobility, functional ability, wellness, and quality of life. A physical therapist is a medical professional who is licensed to assess and treat impairments, functional limitations, and disabilities in patients.

Physical Therapy for Fall Prevention

Many factors, both internal and external, can lead to an increased risk of falls. A physical therapist will first perform an evaluation which will include a detailed history which includes medical history, history of the current problem, patient concerns, and patient goals. The PT will then perform a physical assessment of a person’s balance, strength, sensation, proprioception (awareness of the body’s position in space), and functional mobility. The PT will also consider external factors such as the patient’s home environment, footwear, and assistive devices. Using this information, the physical therapist will develop a unique treatment program for the patient, which may include strength training, balance training, proprioceptive training, functional training, recommendation of appropriate footwear, prescription of an assistive device as appropriate, and a home safety evaluation.

Strength Training: Many falls occur as the result of decreased strength. Weak muscles at the front of the leg may prevent a person from lifting their toes to help their foot clear the floor while they walk. If their toes drag, it can lead to a trip and fall. Weak quadriceps and gluteal muscles can prevent a person from standing fully erect and the added effort to stand up can lead to a fall. A physical therapist will determine which muscles are weak and develop a strengthening program that is individualized to each patient. Exercises may include squats, knee extensions, hamstring curls, and calf raises. These exercises will be performed during the PT session and as part of a home exercise program.

Balance Training: Many older adults experience impaired balance for a variety of reasons including certain medications, vestibular issues such as vertigo, low blood pressure, or neurological conditions. While physical therapy may not necessarily cure the cause of the dizziness, it can help improve a patient’s balance and teach a patient to become desensitized to any exaggerated feelings of dizziness that the patient may be experiencing.

Balance activities during a PT session may include standing with a narrow base of support, sitting and standing on unstable surfaces, sitting and standing activities with the eyes closed or with head movements, stepping over and around obstacles, walking on a line or balance beam, and education in alternative movement patterns.

For vestibular issues such as vertigo or Meniere’s disease, there are physical therapists that specialize in vestibular rehabilitation.

Proprioceptive Training: Proprioception is a person’s ability to determine his or her body’s position in space. Proprioceptive training activities are similar to balance activities and serve to stimulate the receptors in the joints that are responsible for proprioception. These include standing on unstable surfaces such as foam cushions or wobble boards, performing balance and movement activities with one’s eyes closed, and replicating joint positions with one’s eyes closed.

Functional Training: Functional training with a physical therapist includes activities such as getting into and out of bed, standing from a variety of surfaces, safely sitting with control, getting into and out of a vehicle, stair and curb training, and walking in a safe and efficient manner. Many falls occur during these transitional movements, so performing them safely and in a controlled manner will help reduce the risk of falls. The physical therapist will have the patient practice these tasks in a controlled clinic environment, then generalize the skills to the patient’s home and community.

Appropriate Footwear: A physical therapist will take a person’s footwear into consideration if they have a history of falls. Proper footwear is not too heavy, not excessively worn, fits correctly, can be laced or fastened easily, and offers appropriate support. Shoes that are slick on the bottom or that have heels should not be worn by someone who is at risk of falling.

Assistive Devices: If necessary, a physical therapist will recommend an appropriate assistive device to help with a patient’s balance. These devices include canes, walkers, foot and ankle braces. A PT will also help train patients how to use these devices safely and correctly.

Home Safety Evaluation: A physical therapist may be able to come to a patient’s home to perform a safety evaluation. This evaluation would include identifying and eliminating tripping hazards, recommending installation of grab bars if necessary, and recommending equipment such as a commode or shower chair.

Unfortunately, there are some factors that a PT is unable to change. Loss of sensation from diabetes or neuropathy cannot be directly treated by a PT, but the patient can be taught compensatory strategies along with the treatment described above. A PT cannot address medication side effects, but can communicate to a patient’s physician that the prescribed medication may be contributing to the risk of falls.

Incontinence can lead to falls and may be treatable by a physical therapist depending on the cause, but it is also an issue that needs a physician’s expertise. Impaired vision can also lead to an increased risk of falls, so those at risk should have their vision checked regularly and make sure that their prescription is appropriate.

Many falls in older adults can be predicted and prevented. Physical therapy treatment can help remediate several risk factors for falling to ensure that our seniors are able to live longer, safer, and more active lives.

Testimonial: Occupational Therapy Clifton NJ

Posted in Occupational Therapy Rahway NJ, Physical Therapy Clifton NJ

I am a current client of your Clifton office. After my mastectomy in February, I found myself in pain and substantially limited in such important activities as getting dressed, driving, cooking, homemaking, writing, cutting food and most importantly, hugging my children.

After healing from the surgery, I contacted your office in May in the hopes that through Physical Therapy and possibly Occupational Therapy, I might be able to recover some movement and be able to get through the day without constant pain. From my first conversation with Vanessa, your secretary, through my many sessions with Roslyn, one of your Physical Therapists, I have experienced a complete turn-around in my quality of life. Roslyn has diligently, thoroughly and cheerfully encouraged me through many exercises and stretching, while never giving up on me. She always seems able to see exactly where “I’m stuck,” and creates an exercise to remediate it.

The rest of your therapists at this facility are warm and friendly as they cheer me on. Mr. Holsman, you definitely have a staff to be proud of!

Gratefully,

Devora Farrell

Home Safety Tips: Physical Therapy Clifton NJ

According to the Centers for Disease Control one out of three people over the age of 65 fall each year. Among older adults aged 65+, falls are the leading cause of accidental death, and trauma-related hospitalizations. People over the age of 75 have the highest rate of non-fatal fall episodes of all age groups.

Falls can result in cuts, scrapes, bruises, broken bones, head injuries, and/or death. Even without an injury, a fall can cause an older adult to develop a fear of falling, which can be debilitating and cause a person to limit physical activity and social interaction to avoid the potential for falls.

Many falls occur in the home, so below are some tips to keep your home safe and to potentially prevent falls:

Entry

  • If there are steps to enter/exit, make sure that:
    • There is a sturdy handrail
    • The steps are dry and clear of debris
  • A doormat may be a tripping hazard, so be careful when walking near it or remove it completely.

Kitchen

  • To avoid being scalded, set your water heater to a maximum of 120 degrees.
  • Rugs may be tripping hazards, you may want to remove them.
  • Keep the floor clean and dry to prevent slipping.
  • If possible, keep all frequently used items at a level where you won’t need to reach overhead or bend down.
  • Do not try to lift or move heavy pots full of hot food or liquid.
  • Keep the handles of pots and pans turned in so that no one accidentally knocks cooking food off of the stove.
  • Keep cords short by gathering up the excess length with a zip-tie to prevent tripping on cords or knocking appliances onto oneself.

Bathroom

  • If you have difficulty standing from the toilet, consider getting a commode chair.
  • If you need assistance to maintain your balance while performing toileting tasks (undressing, cleaning yourself, dressing), install a sturdy grab bar. Towel racks are not strong enough to hold a person’s body weight if they fall.
  • If possible, use a step-in shower rather than a tub shower to decrease the risk of falling when you step over the edge.
  • To avoid being scalded, set your water heater to a maximum of 120 degrees.
  • Bathe using a shower chair and a shower hose to prevent slipping and falling.
  • Install grab barsnear the shower or tub to use when stepping in and out.
  • Keep the floor clean and dry to prevent slipping.

Living Room

  • Remove throw rugs, as they can be tripping hazards
  • Do not allow cords to run across traffic areas
  • Keep cords short by gathering up the excess length with a zip-tie to prevent tripping on them.
  • Keep the floor clear of clutter to prevent falls.

Bedroom

  • Use a nightlight to prevent falling during the evening, especially when getting up to use the bathroom.
  • Consider using a bedside commode at night.
  • Do not allow cords to run across traffic areas.
  • Keep cords short by gathering up the excess length with a zip-tie to prevent tripping on them.
  • Keep the floor clear of clutter to prevent falls.

Miscellaneous Safety Tips

  • Keep in mind that though they can be good companions, small animals are a tripping hazard.
  • Use nightlights in the hallways to prevent falling during the evening.
  • Consider using a medical alert system so that if you ever need emergency assistance and cannot get to a phone, you will be able to call for help.
  • Check in with a loved one regularly.
  • Consult your physician regularly.
  • Have your vision checked regularly.
  • If you are feeling sick, dizzy, or unusual in any way, do not hesitate to call your doctor!
  • Never be too proud to ask for help, whether it be to carry groceries, to help clean your house, to drive you around town, or any other activity you do not feel confident doing on your own.
  • Seek out a community-based balance class for seniors
  • If you are experiencing weakness, impaired balance, or are having difficulty getting around your home and the community, consider Physical Therapy to address these impairments.

A home evaluation performed by an Occupational Therapist may be indicated to individualize the safety recommendations for your specific living environment. The therapist will assess your abilities and limitations and determine adaptations or special equipment that will increase your safety in your home. The therapist will make a recommendation on the best placement for grab bars, the most appropriate type of tub seat, toilet seat, etc. to increase your safety and independence. Depending on your physical condition, the therapist may also make recommendations of alternate ways of performing some activities of daily living to prevent further decline and/or continued independence in tasks you are struggling to perform. This may also include the use of adaptive devices that will increase your ability to safely bathe, dress/undress, perform homemaking tasks and all other daily living activities.
