LYME DISEASE

Western Berks Physical Therapy & Wellness Center has expanded its professional and expert service in patient care with a growing concern for those who suffer with Lyme Disease. Lyme Disease is an inflammatory infection caused by the bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi, which is transmitted through tick bites. In the eastern United States, Lyme is spread by the deer tick, known as the black-legged tick (lxodes scapularis.)

Symptoms of Lyme Disease are not necessarily the same for every infected individual, however the most common early signs of the disease include flu-like symptoms and a rash. Late-stage Lyme Disease symptoms can occur weeks, months, or even years after the initial exposure.

These symptoms can include:

  • Constant fatigue
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain or swelling
  • Tingling/numbness or burning sensations
  • Headaches with neck and back stiffness
  • Poor balance

Lyme Disease can interfere with daily activities due to the fatigue and lethargy that can occur from the disease. Staff at Western Berks Physical Therapy & Wellness Center can teach patients personalized and gentle exercises to relieve symptoms and reach increased activity levels. In addition, a customized diet plan from a Nutrition and Wellness consultant can be coordinated that may aid Lyme patients by steering them toward energy-boosting meals and snacks. Our team effort is a vital part of the recovery processes to return each and every patient back to an active, pain-free lifestyle.

All treatments are customized to each individual to ensure optimal treatment results as no two patients are identical. Working with your physical therapist to set obtainable goals will boost your confidence and drive.

Call Western Berks Physical Therapy & Wellness Center today to schedule an evaluation and set up a treatment plan to manage your Lyme Disease now.
