  • Pence’s press secretary back to work after recovering from COVID-19

    first_imgUS Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary Katie Miller said on Tuesday she was back at work after recovering from COVID-19, a case that helped encourage White House officials to start wearing masks and take stricter safety precautions around President Donald Trump.Miller, who is married to Trump’s hawkish immigration adviser and speech writer Stephen Miller, said she had returned after receiving three negative tests for the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.”Thank you to all my amazing doctors and everyone who reached out with support. I couldn’t have done it without my amazing husband who took great care of his pregnant wife,” she said in a post on Twitter. Miller contracted the virus in early May, raising alarm about the spread of the virus among Trump’s and Pence’s inner circle shortly after the president’s valet had also tested positive.The two cases prompted the White House to direct staff to wear masks and take additional precautions.Previously, despite admonitions to Americans to wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines, many administration officials were not doing so themselves at least at the White House, where testing has been taking place regularly.”We’re very happy to see her recovered,” White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany told reporters about the vice president’s press secretary.McEnany said Stephen Miller was also back at work after having self-quarantined. She said she did not know whether the military valet had returned and said she had no updates on whether anyone else on the staff had tested positive.Trump, 73, is in an age group considered especially vulnerable to the virus. He has declined to wear a mask in public and has stepped up his travel schedule in recent weeks as he seeks to get the country’s economy reignited from its pandemic-related shutdown.  Topics :last_img read more

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation

    first_imgDefinitionPhysical medicine and rehabilitation are services that can help people regain body functions they lost due to medical conditions or injury.Rehabilitation can help many body functions, including bowel and bladder problems, chewing and swallowing, problems thinking or reasoning, movement or mobility, speech, and language.Alternative Names RehabilitationInformationMany injuries or medical conditions can affect your ability to function:Brain disorders, such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, or cerebral palsyChronic pain, including back and neck painMajor bone or joint surgery, severe burns, or limb amputationSevere arthritis becoming worse over timeSevere weakness after recovering from a serious illness (such as infection or heart failure or respiratory failure)Spinal cord injury or brain injuryChildren may need rehabilitation services for:Down syndrome or other genetic disordersIntellectual disabilityMuscular dystrophy or other neuromuscular disordersSensory deprivation disorder, autism, or developmental disordersSpeech disorders and language problemsPhysical medicine and rehabilitation services also include sports medicine and injury prevention.WHERE REHABILITATION IS DONEA patient can have rehabilitation in many settings. It will often begin while they are still in the hospital, recovering from an illness or injury. Sometimes it begins before someone has planned surgery.After the patient leaves the hospital, treatment may continue at a special inpatient rehabilitation center. A patient may be transferred to this type of center if they have significant orthopedic problems, burns, a spinal cord injury, or severe brain injury from stroke or trauma.Rehabilitation often also takes place in a skilled nursing facility or rehabilitation center outside of a hospital.Many people who are recovering eventually go home to continue their therapy. You may visit the office of your physical medicine physician and other health professionals. Sometimes, a therapist will come to your home. Family members or other caregivers must also be available to help.advertisementWHAT REHABILITATION DOESThe goal of rehabilitation therapy can be small or large. A patient may need to learn how to take care of themselves as much as possible, especially to do tasks such as eating, bathing, using the bathroom, and moving themselves from a wheelchair to a bed.They may need to restore full function to one or more parts of their body.Rehabilitation experts use many tests to evaluate a patient?s problems and monitor their recovery.The patient may need a full rehabilitation program and treatment plan to help with medical, physical, social, emotional, and professional problems. The rehabilitation focus often goes beyond the part of the body that was injured, in order to help the patient recover.The patient may need:Therapy for specific medical problemsAdvice about setting up their home to maximize their function and safetyHelp with wheelchairs, splints, and other medical equipmentHelp with financial and social issuesFamily and caregivers may also need help adjusting to their loved one?s condition and knowing where to find resources in the community.THE REHABILITATION TEAMPhysical medicine and rehabilitation is a team approach. Team members will be doctors, nonphysician health professionals, the patient, and their family or caregivers.Physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors receive 4 or more extra years of training in this type of care after they have finished medical school. They are also called physiatrists.Other types of doctors that may be members of a rehabilitation team include neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, psychiatrists, and primary care doctors.Nonphysician health professionals may be occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech and language therapists, social workers, vocational counselors, nurses, psychologists, and dietitians or nutritionists.Review Date:2/28/2012Reviewed By:Luc Jasmin, MD, PhD, Department of Neurosurgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, and Department of Anatomy at UCSF, San Francisco, CA.
