It doesn’t seem that long ago that the city was hustling and bustling as usual. The city that never sleeps they say. It’s incredible how potent a small microbe is in shutting down one of the world’s busiest cities the way it has.
Within the space of a few short weeks, the city has gone from extreme metropolis to ghost town where few venture out.
The famous city sights are empty. Times Square. Madison Park Gardens. Back & Body Medical. All currently closed and empty.
It’s likely the area hasn’t been this quiet for centuries as the virus takes hold, pushing people away to the confines of their homes.
It is of course, a very sad time. So many have died because of this virus and so many are currently suffering from it. Many are also struggling mentally, it’s a very challenging time.
By nature, humans are social animals and while in the grand scheme of things a month or two of self quarantining might not sound so bad, while you are going through it, it can be tough.
It’s therefore vitally important to try and keep on top of your mental health. Try to be positive, know that this will not last forever and that the city and the world will slowly get back to equilibrium.
In the meantime, this time should be a time of encouragement and building one another up. We are in this together and there is light at the end of the tunnel. Hope is the important point here. Hope that this will end soon and hope that we can all rebuild our lives again.
In the meantime, we hope that everyone is doing the best they can and that they are healthy. We are closed in the city right now, but we are offering TeleHealth video conference calls for those who need us. While we cannot obviously do any manual manipulations, we can speak with you and help diagnose issues online. We can help you with exercises, suggestions for improving workspaces if you work from home and more. Remember when you come in normally, the adjustments only form part of the treatment, it’s what we prescribe for you to do on your home that also helps.
If you are interested in setting up an appointment via TeleHealth, please email Dr Perna direct at [email protected] We can help.
