Life as a nurse is not easy.
Demanding work schedules, which include long hours and heavy lifting have been linked to injury and decreased quality of life. Nurses regularly pick up patients as an integral part of nursing care, and lifting contributes to a higher risk of severe back injuries. They also spend long hours on their feet and have few opportunities to take a break from standing and walking.
These are just a few of the reasons why services such as registered massage therapy, osteopathy, physiotherapy, and chiropractic are essential for nurses. Not only can complementary therapies aid nurses recover from existing injuries, but they can also prevent further injuries from occurring.
The Ananda Clinic offers a wide variety of complementary medical offerings under one roof in addition to topical compound creams specifically created to target pain and provide relief. From our central clinic in London, ON, Ananda also provides telehealth social work and nutritional counselling services as well as access to medical products such as compression stockings, back braces and orthotics to nurses across Canada.
Ananda’s team of leading healthcare professionals regularly design customized treatment program based on the very specific needs of nurses. One factor that regularly plays a part in these treatment programs is weight loss.
Mounting epidemiological evidence suggests that night shift work may contribute to the etiology of increased body weight. At Ananda, nurses have access to programs that are often covered by their benefits, including YOLO Curve LipoLaser treatments, dietitian services, and a custom-built exercise program courtesy of ExerSmart, which promotes weight loss and helps with maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Nurses must be able to care for themselves first before they can facilitate the healing of others and this is why our experienced and knowledgeable Ananda clinic staff are here to help any registered nurse who feels they can benefit from the following:
- Compound creams
- Compression socks
