Just because COVID-19 is requiring us to stay home doesn't mean we can't address our injuries or pain!
Tele-rehabilitation, or video appointments, can be an effective tool to assess your movement, educate you on your condition and how to manage it, and prescribe and progress exercises to allow for your injury to resolve.
Due to the statements put out today from our association and college as per the declaration of the provincial health emergency relating to COVID-19, we will be closed until further notice. We feel it is important to follow these recommendations in the interest of public safety and health.
We will be calling clients to cancel existing appointments and to discuss further communication with your attending physiotherapist. We are in the process of setting up tele-rehabilitation, or videoconferencing, as an option for clients. If you are interested in this, or have any other questions, please email us a email@example.com.
As many of you already know, the World Health Organization has declared the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic. BC Health Officials recommend people don’t travel outside of Canada, and if you choose to go to the U.S. or another country, you should expect to be in isolation for 14 days when you return. As well, the BC government has just banned any social gatherings >250 people.
In light of this and the importance of us all doing our part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep our residents safe, Transitions Physiotherapy is taking the following precautions:
• Please wash or sanitize your hands upon entering the clinic
• If you have ANY symptoms of fever, cough or difficulty breathing, please call the clinic to reschedule your appointment for when you are symptom free
• If you come to the clinic with any of these symptoms, please reschedule your appointment until you are symptom free
• If you have returned from out of country after March12, 2020 , please call to re-schedule your appointment after the 14 day requested isolation period
By working together, we can minimize the spread of COVID-19 and the effects on the public health system. ... See MoreSee Less
Research says the answer is no. But that doesn’t mean they are inevitable,. especially if injury-prevention tools are adopted by everyone, rather than just those who are supposedly at high risk.
