I recently started going to physical therapy to help reclaim from an unexpected emergency C-section, but i noticed that the air conditioning is consistently on strong when I am at physical therapy. It was pretty sizzling out when I went to my appointments, so I figured the temperature on the temperature control could have been correlating with the temperature outside. I noticed that when the temperature outside was cooling down, the air conditioning was still on pretty strong in the physical therapist’s office. I started to bring a sweatshirt in with me. I asked my physical therapist why the air conditioning was on so strongâ€¦ She said that the physical therapy office appreciates to keep the air conditioning on because many patients break out in a sweat when they start exercising, as well as they do not want any patients getting hot; Many patients that seek physical therapy are considered to be geriatric, meaning they are sixty more than four or older, but patients that are geriatric are more likely to suffer from heat related illnesses such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.Having central air conditioning on in physical therapy offices can help prevent geriatric patients from being at risk for heat related illnesses. In addition to many geriatric patients seeking physical therapy, there are patients who have suffered from strokes, heart attacks, as well as accidents, and the last thing a patient would need is to have more issues due to the temperature not being reasonable. In addition to the prevention of heat related illness, air conditioning can also help prevent the spread of viruses as well as bacteria in physical therapy offices.
