Putting Some Spring in Your Step

With the weather warming, we look forward to some “outdoor” time and taking in the fresh spring air.  But before you do, there are some health-related issues that may need attention. For those with seasonal allergies, talk with your doctor about starting any medicines before the pollen count rises.  Ticks are prevalent, particularly in Western Pennsylvania, so take precautions: use tick repellant, avoid tall vegetation and do a body “tick check”.  That goes for your pets, too.  To ward off the effects of “cabin fever”, get gardening, walking, cycling or exercising, but start slowly if you’ve been inactive all winter.  If a spring ache or ailment gets you down, a visit to your doctor may be in order or you can text GETWELL to the number 24587 and within minutes, you will have an appointment with a primary care or specialist provider. Or, call 1-844-7-GETWELL (1-844-7-438-9355) to get an appointment.
