Thomas Murphy, DO CAQSM
Dr. Tom Murphy is part of the Carle Physician Group specializing in Primary Care Sports Medicine/Family Medicine. He discusses the importance of health and fitness among all ages, including children during this time.
“The benefits of remaining physically active cannot be overstated for people of all age groups, and during these challenging times maintaining social interaction with necessary precautions is important for our mental health and well being. As a local physician, I can attest to the fact that the Carle Health & Fitness Center and the Training and Performance Center know that a whole-person approach to our health is important for us all, including our children. Despite some questions being raised, exercising while wearing a face covering is not dangerous, and when combined with good hygiene and appropriate distancing can create a workout environment that is safe for most people. To this end, the Carle Health & Fitness Center and the Training and Performance Center have created multiple options to keep your children active and engaged to benefit their mental and physical health, while continuing to ensure their safety.“
