I always think of Cassidy as so spry.

And I’m not wrong! He’s always seemed like a bit of a superhero to me – never slowing. Many nights, especially lately with being pregnant and staying home during uncertain times, I’ll fall asleep on the couch while he’s still up making sure everyone is safe and fed and healthy. There’s no end to the piggyback rides and airplane rides he gives our kids – even though they’re getting older! And I have no doubt he’ll be ready to do the same for our new baby this year. That said, he had an injury when Des was a baby – a severe AC separation – and it still affects him to this day.

Why Upswing Health is More Important Than Ever Now:

Cassidy’s story:

Seven years ago, Cassidy fell on his shoulder while running. I remember getting the phone call and taking infant Des to meet him at the hospital, because Scarlet was at preschool. It was scary because I had never seen him injure himself and I know the pain was unbearable. At the time, he got the advice to not pursue physical therapy; it was only after the pain never went away, or resurfaced terribly years later, that he realized that was a mistake. He started physical therapy in late 2019, and it was going great until he had to stop because we are staying at home.

So we decided to pursue another avenue to help him feel better now.

Upswing Health services:

Upswing Health is a web-based service that helps people treat their musculoskeletal injuries. And from the comfort of our homes, which is more important now than ever! Upswing Health connected me to a Certified Athletic Trainer who validated Cassidy’s shoulder separation and helped us move forward. If necessary, they can help set up a telehealth visit with a primary care sports medicine physician. Upswing Health helps active people, regardless of level, age, or ability, to prevent and recover from injuries that may slow them down.

Some important facts:

Many musculoskeletal (MSK) issues can be treated at home, and we didn’t know that! They can be treated with a series of guided exercises, without ever having seen a doctor, and you can get guidance with your (MSK) issues on demand with Upswing Health. The portal was easy to use. I visited the website and selected the “What Hurts” button at the top right of the page. Then I walked through the injury identification tool with Cassidy. Upswing Health is the only national telemedicine services that allows you to talk to sports medicine doctors for FREE! And they have an incredible library of more than 7,000 exercise videos curated by licensed physical therapists.

You have the option to give your email address or phone number, and I love how fast I got that first text. Upswing Health connected us to an advanced AI diagnostic system to help figure out what was wrong. Even though it’s not my injury, I hate to see Cassidy in pain. Without being able to go to physical therapy, we had to figure something else out. These services are more important than ever while sheltering in place. Being at home can make Cassidy feel stiff or in pain. Think about it – we probably all know someone who could benefit from Upswing Health! And all their services are currently free. Kelsey really helped us:

To remember:

She sent us exercises that Cassidy started using. Most use items we already have in our home. Now is the perfect time for Cassidy to utilize this easy-to-use technology to connect with a live medical professional at home. Just remember, these services are not a medical device and cannot give a medical diagnosis. Certified Athletic Trainers can give general medical advice, but not a diagnosis. And you will not be speaking to a doctor/athletic trainer until your injury is assessed. Here he is, doing one of the recommended shoulder exercises:
