BARTON CENTER FOR ORTHOPEDICS & WELLNESS WELCOMES BACK INTEGRATED CARE AND PERFORMANCE SERVICES
(South Lake Tahoe, Calif.) – With safety as its top priority, Barton Health is bringing back health and wellness programs to the Barton Center for Orthopedics & Wellness, serving the community and visitors to the Lake Tahoe area with rehabilitation and physical therapy, Performance services and training, and wellness programs to help participants pursue their health goals. This U.S. Ski & Snowboard Certified Center of Excellence has continued to provide expert orthopedic services during the COVID-19 pandemic, and has brought back integrated services and coordinated care.
Continuous adaptation to protect patients, healthcare workers, and staff at the Center has allowed for the return of many aspects of coordinated care available in the facility. The Barton Center for Orthopedics & Wellness is an innovative medical environment that serves as a hub for health and wellness, and coordinates care through specialists and medical providers. Programs that improve recovery from injury and return to favorite activities – from group classes to individuals’ post-surgery rehabilitation – follow strict health and safety measures aligned with state and federal guidelines. These programs support patients through every step of their health journey:
Barton Rehabilitation services are directly coordinated through patients’ orthopedic specialists to improve their recovery from injury or surgery. Here, licensed physical therapists, occupational therapists and rehabilitation specialists coordinate with physicians to optimize participants’ recovery.
Barton’s Bridge Program is geared to clients who wish to continue a one-on-one formalized sports performance training program upon completion of their rehabilitation. Specialists at the Center design a sport-specific exercise training program in accordance with established return to sport protocols that will better prepare the client for their return to sport or favorite activity.
Barton Performance is helping patients and community participants of all ages and abilities to improve strength, agility, and mobility. Customized training, indoor and outdoor group classes, and services through the Barton Performance Lab go beyond the typical health and fitness facility. Using industry-leading technology and medical equipment, Performance and Rehabilitation specialists can also evaluate resting metabolic rate, oxygen levels, and biomechanics. Based on this data and the participant’s goals, a customized training program is created to help reduce pain, improve the body’s performance, and help keep them active.
Wellness programs through Barton Health are returning on a limited basis, and can be accessed virtually via a secure telehealth platform. Free community wellness webinars on current health topics are presented each month by experts in the field, and online classes such as Barton’s Childbirth Preparation series are now available. Health coaching services through the Center are back online, supporting individuals in achieving their best health and making lifestyle changes that promote physical, emotional, mental, and nutritional well-being. These services can integrate with the plan of care from the patient’s healthcare provider.
