The COVID-19 pandemic has made remaining fit and active a major challenge for many. Even as gyms and fitness centers reopen in Ohio, you might not feel comfortable exercising inside around other people. It can be easy to lose motivation and stay within the confines of home. Cardiovascular conditioning, muscle strength and flexibility all start to decline when physical activity stops. For someone with spine and orthopedic-related health issues, physical activity is especially important because it helps keep joints lubricated, mobile and strong to help relieve pain. That's why it's important to find alternatives to the gym to maintain your overall health during this pandemic. Dr. George Friedhoff, sports medicine specialist at St. Vincent Charity’s Spine and Orthopedic Institute, says the key for those who may have been inactive the last 6 to 8 weeks during quarantine is to remember to take it slow.

You can enter our facilities and physician offices with the confidence we at St. Vincent Charity are taking every precaution to keep you safe.
