Whenever you are unable to do things you used to do due to pain, stiffness of joints or loss of feeling, your doctor will probably advise you to undergo some kind of physical therapy. Regardless of the cause of your struggle, you can be certain that your quality of life can be greatly improved through physical therapy. However, what you may not know is that physical therapy has other beneficial effects for you, too. We have compiled 10 reasons why physical therapy is good for you.

Diagnostic procedures available at our Walk In Clinic in Hialeah, Part 2

Last month we introduced you to some of the diagnostic services available at Ritecare Urgent Care. In the previous article, we mentioned EKG, Vital Signs (B/P), X-Rays, PPD and Vaccines. Here are 4 more physical examinations that we perform in our Walk In clinic in Hialeah: 1.  Vision Test Vision screening is used to test various functions of the eye. It is completely painless and may cause only minor discomfort. The most common and easiest test used to check the patient’s eyesight is a visual acuity test. They measure the ability to see details up close and afar. They also measure the power of focusing the eye on those details. Both eyes are tested separately and the test usually consists of reading letters or symbols of various sizes on an eye chart. The test also checks whether the patient has nearsightedness (when the image is formed in front of the retina, not on it) and farsightedness (when the image is formed behind the eye, not on it). Another part of the vision screening is color vision testing that evaluates what is the patient’s capability to distinguish colors. It is often used for the applicants whose job requires them to differentiate colors (e.g. DOT exam). 2.  Hearing Test In our walk in Clinic in Hialeah we also conduct hearing test. They are designed to establish the range of hearing of the patient. The test usually takes no more than 10 minutes. An Audiogram enables the doctor to monitor any changes in the auditory function and helps to detect hearing loss. The test is conducted in a soundproof booth where the...
